This was hands down the BEST tour guide we have had. She was phenomenal: engaging, well spoken, knowledgeable, and passionate. We loved the gallery in Pitti Palace - such incredible works of art but we appreciated it more because of our guide. She was able to answer all our questions and helped us appreciate the works of art. Just a terrific experience.

Antonella was EXCEPTIONAL! She presents a detailed amount of historical information in the most engaging manner, as though she is having tea with you and sharing stories about a topic that fills her with passion. I would not have learned so much nor enjoyed the Pitti Palace had I not had the good fortune to have Antonella leading the way.

Our tour guide was amazing, I wish I could remember her name. So knowledgable about all of the history and art (in fact I overheard that she also is a part of the team that helps restores the artwork). I enjoyed every moment of the tour and owuld highly recommend it to anyone!
