The Pitti Palace tour with Martina was excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable about art, art history and the general history of the Renaissance. She shared many details about the artists and their relationships with each other. The Palace has a tremendous amount of artwork but Martina focused on the significant pieces. She was excellent.

Our guide “Jacomo” was great again! We had it for the second time! He told us a lot about the history of Pitti Palace and presented a lot of interesting pictures. He loves the story of Florence and he passes it on in exactly the same way. The Boboli Gardens are also very beautiful with a great view over Florence.

I hadn't visited these places yet and it was incredible. Martina made it enjoyable and we really enjoyed the visit. He also gave us tips on places to eat or enjoy Florence. We will definitely repeat with her as soon as we can return.
