Featured Departure: Tour Rome with Nina Bernardo
|Nina Bernardo packs a big passion for Italy.|
Rome for a week in October is the perfect getaway. It's a chance to grab one last slice of summer weather, enjoy evening strolls surrounded by Europe's most monumental sights...and learn about the city's great history, food and culture from a tour guide who lives and breathes it: Nina Bernardo.
For the past five years, Nina Bernardo has been a "guiding dynamo" for Rick Steves' Tours. She may be pint-sized but her knowledge of Italy could fill the Colosseum. Consider this: Nina speaks Italian like a native and probably understands their culture better as well. She's also fearless, having chosen the rather gritty streets of central Naples as her home. With a passion for Italy that's contagious, a perpetual smile and a laugh you won't soon forget, Nina makes every tour of Italy she leads memorable and magical.
We still have a few seats open for our October 12 Best of Rome in 7 Days tour, which will be led by Nina Bernardo. Not only will it be a fun opportunity to experience a great city in the company of a world-class guide, but this tour will set you back $200 less than the 2009 version. Mamma mia!
A recent tour member raves about Nina:
"Nina was more than we could have ever hoped for in a guide. She was so knowledgeable in her subjects, as well as passionate. She made Rome accessible and magical. She pushed us out of our comfort zones, but was always there if we needed help. She is just fabulous!"
