Giada did an excellent job telling the story of Michelangelo’s David. Her enthusiasm was contagious and we left in awe of this magnificent work and the genius of Michelangelo! We also appreciated hearing about the Duomo and the local history on the walking tour. With Giada’s expertise and the ability to skip the line, this tour was completely worth the cost. If you’re on the fence, don’t hesitate! Your experience will be enriched by having a professional guide.
