We had a wonderful experience doing this tour with Dott. Maria Paola Gatti. She was informational, entertaining, a great conversationalist and not at all in a rush to finish it up. My husband and I enjoyed spending time with Paola as we walked through the uffizi gallery. She put so much into context for us giving us a fantastic experience! Highly recommend Paola.
Tour di due ore con Francesco, guida bravissima. Dal trecento bizantino fino a Michelangelo e Raffaello, una carrellata di storia dell?arte passando attraverso i dipinti pi� famosi. Francesco spiega e racconta senza mai annoiare e rendendo tutto molto interessante. Consigliatissimo.
