On July 4th, Anna met us at our hotel and gave us an absolutely amazing tour of Florence and the Academia and got us tickets to the Uffizi, as well. She led us through quiet, beautiful streets, around all the bustle of Florence at its busiest tourist time, and opened our eyes to a Florence we could never have glimpsed on our own. Anna has the heart of a teacher as she engaged us with questions and revealed the fascinating history of Florence. I highly recommmend Anna! She gave us a lifetime gift of a day!
