Qualified tourist guides: by the law, are the only subjects allowed to take people around the towns, enter in museums, churches, palaces and explain them to visitors. The license is released after being tested on several topics like: art history, archeology, economy and society, customs and traditions about the province for which they obtained the license. Tourist guide services are preferable if you want to have someone who remains with you the entire day providing in depth information about the history, art, uses and costumes of a certain territory.
My guided walks bring to life the visited venues, a local guide gives information that you never would find in guidebooks, helps to interact with the locals...in short, with a tour guide is better!
