Excellent tour with Ducco. We were lucky enough to be the only two people on the tour, me and my partner, so we had a private tour really. Ducco, was very knowledgeable of the paintings nuances, history and progress of the painted art through the centuries. Uffizi gallery is massive and if you have time probably should go back in your own time to appreciate all of the place, with Ducco we went through the main rooms and got a thorough explanation of the most important and striking pieces. In the Duomo, we had a fantastic explanation not only of the building process, but from the inner duomo mural that it is by all means breathtaking. Then we went on our own as part of the deal, up to the Duomo, to see the mural upclose, really upclose and also to have fantastic views of the whole city up top. It is hard work going up the narrow stairs and if you suffer from claustrophobia and vertigo be aware, but it is worth for the view, but mainly, for me, for the mural! Amazing all

Great tour with Leonardo! We walked around the Uffizi Gallery for @ 2 hours seeing all the highlights. Our guide was so knowledgeable about everything. Then, he walked us to the Duomo where we waited about 15 minutes for our admitted time. We loved climbing to the top and had the most perfect view of all of Florence. If you do not like heights, are claustrophobic, or have vertigo, I do not recommend it as the stairwells are small and narrow. For us, it was not a problem and a wonderful experience!! Your ticket is good for 3 days to come back and see the Cathedral, museum, and baptistery. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I had the pleasure of touring the Ufizi and the Duomo with Chiara. She was the best tour guide / host we've ever had the pleasure of touring with. She was incredibly knowledgable and clearly very passionate about art and architecture. We loved it. Thank you Chiara!
