There is also a live Q&A at the end satisfying all your questions about the Crimes and Mysteries of Paris. Whether you’ve never been abroad or spent every summer in Italy, enjoy this exciting, interactive experience from the comfort of your home.

Different and unique in the right tone!

How different and engaging without being rude ... but unique in understanding ancient Roman culture. Marco was great with cultural facts and stories you don’ t realize was part of life now and then ....
