Increíble experience, our guide was very smart and knew a lot , she was making sure at all times that we were understanding and learning, she was passionate about teaching what she knows , a local that was very fluent in Spanish with all the terms it was truly impressive, I am bad at names so I can’t remember her name . I recommend to do this early in the morning as it gets very packed with people later on . I did climed all the way to the top of the Dome , for this make sure you eat and drink water you must be physically fit and be able to be in close up area with humidity and not much air , it was incredible to be up there but I am glad my mom didn’t go because ones you get in there is no way back you will have people behind you , I must say it was a hard climb .

Excellent experience, could not have asked for a better day with Claudio and Roberto. They were both extremely attentive and did absolutely anything and everything to make our day perfect. The local guide in Florence, Elena was extremely knowledgeable and a delight as well.

Experience was great, our guide was Leonardo and he was extremely friendly and welcoming the moment we met. He was very informative and answered everyone's questions. The pace of the tour was good, time to rest and listen, admire and take lots of pictures!

Excellent. Claudio has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of the church, the artists and their works.

A place worth to visit. A view point is a breathtaking experience.
