It was amazing!!! I went on the tour with my mom, and since the other group cancelled it was just the two of us so we could ask questions and go at our own pace. Paola was incredible, she told us about the history of Florence, including small details and interesting facts. Through her descriptions we could imagine how Florence was in the past, with it's stunning buildings and beautiful sights. The tour made our trip unforgetable and was worth the price. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who wants know more about the city and understand what the sights really represent. Such as story behind statue of The Rape of the Sabin Women, it made us see the statue in a different light.

I can't recomment Paola highly enough! The other group cancelled, so it was just me and my mum, which was great for us. Paola's love of Florence is very clear, and she is a wonderful guide. She took us around the main sights of Florence, and was careful to point out small details which we would have missed, and to tell us really interesting stories about the history of the city. We went to see a fresco in a church, and she carefully explained what the fresco was communicating about the patrons who had paid for it. The guided tour was really worth the money, and added a lot to our enjoyment of our time in Florence. It was great to be on such a small tour, because it meant we could ask loads of questions. Paola was a lovely person, and I'd really recommend her tour.
