On our honeymoon and purchased Skip The Line tickets for the Duomo Climb. I had no clue I signed up for a tour. I don't usually like being trapped in a tour for three hours. We met Cristina at the office and said she was taking us on one. I wasn't excited about it, but she changed my mind very quickly. She was so sweet, and my husband and I had a great time. We lucked out because it is the slow season in Florence, so we had a private tour, when most of her groups are up to 25 people. We asked her early on about any authentic restaurants, gelaterias, etc that she could recommend. She gave us a map and marked a few spots. On our last night, we tried La Casalinga. Wow! Cristina provided a great tour and gave us the literal mom and pop restaurant, as they were the ones cooking. The spaghetti bolognese was awesome and my husbands ravioli was perfect. The house wine is cheap and delicious. Back to the tour... we learned a lot and appreciated her help that day. Would recommend this to anyone, even those who dislike tours. :)
