Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

I'm looking for a dusk tour and ran across Rome Illuminated. It is just two of us. Is this a personal tour or can we join a small group (say 10 people) to see Rome at dusk/
