    We've booked small group tour, but apparently no one else booked the same spot, so we've got a private tour instead. Our guide, Roberta from Florencepass, is truly amazing. She's art historian, speaks 5 languages (I wish one day my English becomes as good as hers, initially I thought she was British) and knows everything about artworks in Palazzo Pitti, architecture of the palace and history of Florence. At the end of the tour, she gave us some very usefull tips about Boboli Gardens and other florentine museum. I highly recommend this tour.
