We arrive in Florence on Friday and after spending a day wandering among shops and monuments we decide to book a guide for the following day, We never imagined that it would be a beautiful experience and that it would make our stay unique. Alberto our guide accompanied us not only between palaces and history but made us experience two hours of intense magic making us travel with the imagination in the Italian Renaissance one of the most incredible historical periods of our history.

Notre guide Valentina était absolument une passionnée et mine d’information sur les Médicis. Sa connaissance multidisciplinaire en architecture, histoire de l’art, personnages marquant et anecdotes amusantes sur les familles de l’époque, leurs interactions, rumeurs intimement reliées à l’histoire de Florence nous ont ravis. À noter sa maîtrise excellente de la langue française, j’aurais adoré que le tour soit plutôt de 3-4H que 2H!

Our guide, Anna, was very kind, knowledgeable and passionate. The tour lasted even longer than expected but this was also because we asked her for some insights that she was very willing to give us. I recommend it and then knowing the history of the doctors was really interesting and useful to be able to visit Florence with a completely different awareness

The tour was one of the best I've had in Florence. I was given 'insiders' that you can't read anywhere. I was able to learn a lot and refresh my knowledge. Thank you and I recommend this tour to everyone.

Positive experience. Useful to know some details. To be completed with a visit to the interiors of the buildings
