Exceptional!

Both parts of the tour were incredible! First, we walked around the city and visited the Accademia, where I realized the importance of having a tour guide beside me. I couldn’t interpret the artwork without her as I don’t have any art background. The lunch recommendation was also exquisite, and I enjoyed our time in the Uffizi Galerry after that. I highly recommend it!

Finn

Very informative!

They did a smart thing by dividing the tour into two parts, as you need a break after the morning walk. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable, provided many facts, and laid the foundation for a more in-depth look at the art and buildings. I loved the architectural explanation, as the landmarks are just spectacular! My favorite was the cathedral’s bell tower.
