We had our guided tour with Christina (I hope I remembered her name correctly, it was the nice lady from the Passai Valley) Great summary of the history and importance of Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance - very easy to understand, humorous with all the background and detailed knowledge - simple class

E stata una sorpresa per il compleanno del mio compagno, adora Firenze.. E fargli fare anche un tour con la storia legata a questa meravigliosa città, è stato epico. Ringrazio Giacomo che ci ha fatto vivere una Firenze sotto un altro aspetto, tour durato 3 ore, ma fra risate e spiegazioni dettagliate dei vari monumenti, non ci hanno pesato minimamente, anzi.. Saremmo rimasti ad ascoltare tutto il giorno! Ci ha inoltre consigliato molto bene per il nostro pranzo a Firenze, un ottima trattoria tipica vicino a San Lorenzo. Ottima anche l’assistenza questa mattina, in quanto ho avuto un attimo difficoltà a trovare Giacomo la nostra guida. Mi riaffideró senz’altro a questa agenzia, in quanto da la possibilità di visitare molteplici monumenti, e non solo uno è basta. Consigliatissima!!! Grazie davvero per questa meravigliosa giornata, e Grazie ancora Giacomo.
