We were a group of 3 travelling in January 2020 and lucky enough to be the only ones on this tour. The bonus of travelling in winter and booking small group tours. Chiara was our guide for our tour. She was amazing. Full of stories and interesting facts. She even climbs the Dome with you and tells you about the stories depicted in the paintings.
The sites were amazing and we hardly had to wait. The tour guide was very nice and Incredibly knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend. However, the climb was much more intense than anticipated. Wear sneakers for the narrow spriral stairs. If you are claustrophobic at all, skip the climb. But definitely see Il Duomo and the David.
We were amazed to find a guide who lives around the corner from il Duomo, and gained her mayor in art from the art academy in Firenze. Additionally Raphaela was a wonderfully enthusiastic person who added a warm and engaged dimension to her huge knowledge of the city, its art and history. Not a single question was left unanswered.
Veronica was our guide for the evening and we couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgable guide. It was absolutely worth it for me and my wife. Looking forward to visiting Florence again, we wish we had more time!
Excellent day with superb guide who knew everything about her home city with a superb understanding of art and history. if you only have a day in Florence choose this tour.
