Danieli did our tour of Florence. He was very knowledgeable of the history of Florence. I attended both tours. Renaissance tour in the morning and Medici tour in the afternoon. Definitely worth my time. I highly recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed the 11am Renaissance tour. The guide spoke good English and was clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the city. The tour was well paced with enough time at each area to get a good understanding of the history without it being detail heavy.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
