Silvia took us for a 3 hour walking tour of central Bologna. I had booked through the previous Viator Private Guides, and she was excellent with email communication. Silvia obviously has a great love for her home city, its history and its amazing people. She gave us lots of tips on what to further explore, and some wonderful information and stories about all the wonderful sights. I can definitely recommend her!

We had a fantastic tour in 2016 with Silvia which I have reviewed that time on Trip Advisor . This year we are on another cruise in the Adriatic Sea and I contacted Silvia and asked her if it was possible to go to San Marino from the Port in Ravenna . After a few emails back and forwards she had a fantastic tour set up from Ravenna to San Marino and Rimini for our groups of a dozen people including transportation and a restaurant to have a nice lunch with a beautiful view . Than in March we received a notice from our Cruise Company that the port of Ravenna was cancelled and instead we are going to Rijeka , Kroatia . I felt so terrible to have to tell Silvia that we had to cancel this wonderful tour she had set up for us and for that reason alone I think she deserves a 5* review . If you are going to Ravenna in my mind there is no better guide to contact than Silvia who is so knowledgeable of the history and the sights to be seen and a wonderful person the spend a day with . Thank you for all your work Silvia I hope to come back again to Ravenna and for sure I will contact you ! Tony

So far Silvia is 20 for 20 with five-star ratings. This will make it 21 for 21. All the previous reviews touch on anything I could say. My wife and I took a walking tour of Ravenna with her one day, and the same in Bologna the next. We don't see how anyone could do it better. Knowledgeable, personable, punctual -- and hilarious when the occasion arises. If you are taking the time to come to Ravenna or Bologna and really care about learning something about these historic cities, do it the way it was meant to be done and work with Silvia. Obviously everybody else on here feels the same way. Easiest review I'll ever write.

We wanted to see the mosaics in Ravenna. We got much more. Silvia is an incredibly knowledgable guide who took us through some of the major attractions explaining the mosaics, the history of Ravenna and some of the characters who contributed to its past. She was captivating and humorous. A fantastic way to see the highlights of Ravenna.

It has always been on my bucket list to see the mosaics in Ravenna. I did not want to go all that way and not know what I was looking at. Silvia was wonderful from initial contact and until we met her. She is so knowledgeable and she pointed out so many details that we would have missed. Her tours are private and for the cost well worth money.
