Great
This was a great overall tour of the city and it's history. The guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the poltical history of Florence, the architecture, and history of the art. We loved learning about the Renaissance style and Michaelangelo, Raphael, and Leonardo di Vinci. Overall this was an EXCELLENT tour. The only drawback was the heavy accent of our guide. She spoke very good English but the accent was thick which made it difficult for us to understand.
