With her mesmerising storytelling skills, Monica’s tours are a whirlwind of cultural, social and epicurean information punctuated by generous glugs of wine and excellent plates of cicheti. She’s so persuasive that she’s even been known to convince die-hard fish-phobics to mop up a plate of octopus. Kids will love her cleverly conceived ghost tours, full of grisly murders and plague deaths.

Snacks along the way are paid for separately.
