Our guide Patricia was very enthusiastic about her subjects. This made the tour even more interesting. So much to see in this great museum. Glad that they left us in the museum so we could continue on our own. This was my favorite museum in Florence.

Definately worth doing as the queues were so long. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and led us to the main attractions in the museum which we could have quite easily missed on our own.

A highlight of our trip. Loved the commentary from the Guide, and the ending in the Sistine Chapel is a marvelous memory. Absolutely worth the extra money.
