    Our guide, Tiziana, was great! She clearly had an extensive knowledge of the history of the Palazzo Vecchio and Signoria. She pointed our symbols and details that we had previously overlooked throughout the city and we enjoined taking that information with us for the remainder of our trip throughout Tuscany. We could have listened to her all day. We certainly learned alot but not in an overwhelming day. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours!
