Our tour of "The Medici" with Jacomo added greatly to our appreciation of the art and history of Florence. An architect by training, Jacomo brought an accessible sophistication of information and an ability to relate to all members of the tour.

Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
