    The tour of an hour to the areas adjacent to the Duomo is recommended. The guide Silvia, in addition to being very prepared on purely historical notions, told interesting curiosities about the city and its buildings. The gesture of giving a free ice cream to the Strega Nocciola ice cream parlor was much appreciated.

    It was a very good tour. Concise and a good summary of Florence history. Silvia was the tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and a very nice lady. She has good English and we could understand everything she said. Very happy with her and the tour. The only voice of caution is that the stairs to go to the top of the Dome is very demanding and a person in poor shape should make sure they can do it.
