      è stato tutto perfetto. Una Guida disponibile, attenta, molto, molto paziente. Ha dato molto di più di quanto richiesto sia in termini di tempo (ha sforato di quasi mezz'ora) sia in termini di professionalità. Preparato ha saputo rispondere alle domande con semplicità e competenza e sempre con il sorriso (nonostante il giovane cliente un po' troppo saputello). ha superato brillantemente le immancabili limitazioni dovute al momento particolare.

      Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most beautiful monuments in Florence. This visit is an opportunity to understand the history of the city and to observe the artworks by Donatello, Michelangelo and Vasari. Leonardo, our guide, was great! It was nice to discover Palazzo Vecchio with him.
