Leonardo gave us a very personalized tour of some areas that he knew very well. He knew of our interest in art and opera and led us to some sights that we would certainly not have seen without a guide who had special knowledge. For example, I was interested in seeing Livorno neighborhoods both old and new because of the stories I used to hear from my aunt about living there when my uncle worked at Camp Darby. He also showed us a less obvious sights in Pisa, even Gallileo's home. A real joy!
