Eva was fantastic. We had a small group of 4 requiring both English and Italian - Eva was able to switch between both languages with ease. Her knowledge was outstanding and she answered all questions we had. The park itself is beautiful and well worth a visit. We are so pleased we booked Eva as she really added to the visit and provided us with much more information than we would have had without her there. Thank you Eva!
