My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful guided tour with Elisa. Her knowledge of the City really helped us understand the magic of Florence. Even better was the way she engaged with the family and unlocked the stories of Florence as as we moved around its streets and squares.

From the Duomo across the Ponte Vecchio. I do wish we could have spent more time going into the Duomo and could have gone into the Palazzo Pitti.

With a great tour guide like Alyshia, this is the best way to get the lay of the land in the core of Florence. If you're going to be in Florence for a few days, this is the best way to get all of the history behind the architecture before immersing yourself in each site, and
