The guide, i am not sure his name.. and Italian.. was excellent.. He not only knew a great deal about the paintings and the history, but he was friendly and helpful. By the time i got to the Van Gogh museum i could no longer walk. He got me a wheelchair and pushed me all through the museum. He helped us on the elevators and finding the facilities. He was the best. peace, Harriet
