We were a group of 6 with 3 teens visiting Italy for the 1st time. We wanted to give the kids an inside glimpse of Florence's cultural riches without being overwhelmed. The palace complex and gardens encapsulate much of Florence's patrimony. Elisabetta's tour with her passion for the city and its history was absolutely ideal for all of us, moving with ease and delightful humor between historical detail, narrative and insightful commentary. She cares that her clients fall in love with Florence. And we did!
