I looked thru all of the guide resumes and choose Francesco, because of how he described his knowledge and passion for the city of Florence. I feel he underestimated himself. We did two tours with him, his passion for the city was shown with every step we took. His knowledge was more than we could ever image. Another friend was an art student and could not believe the passion and knowledge Francesco has. He also made wonderful recommendations and reservations for dinner both nights. Grazie Mille
