Was hoping for a tour more concentrated about the medici family but the tour was more focused on the art within the palace

Our host Elizabet was a very interesting and informative companion with a great sense of humour. There were only 3 of us on the tour which was a shame as it was a fascinating. It was so useful to be given so much information about the former occupants and delve into their history and habits. We could ask questions to personalise our visit and she highlighted the most important pieces of art and furniture. The Palace is amazing and we spent time in a couple of the exhibitions having been given an understanding of how people lived and interacted with others. A very personal and enjoyable experience which we recommend to others.
