From Cristina's 2017 When in Rome course:
"Cristina is very knowledgeable about her topic, and relayed the information in a very concise and understandable power point presentation. She had great rapport with the class, and was very open to questions and providing very helpful tips about visiting such an exciting city – and how best to tackle the many tourist attractions if you have a limited time schedule.
Her knowledge of Italian architecture was most valuable and offered great insight into the history of Rome." Ingrid P
