What people are saying about Via Maggio
We had a wonderful morning in Florence with your guide Antonella. We learned all about the famous de Medici family and their palaces and residences in the different parts of the city. The different squares of the city were interesting and of course the impressive religious buildings with the Duomo being such an important landmark as well as being the Cathedral church. The artesan's area on the other bank of the river was fascinating and we took Antonella's advice and took the local bus up to Piazzale Michelangelo and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful panoramic views of the city as well as those from San Miniato al Monte even higher up. British painters are known to have been impressed by the light in Italy - well it was easy to understand why as in late September we had sunny days and blue skies every day.
We loved this walking tour so much. We were in a small group of 4 and it was brilliant. Manuela, our guide, was so happy and informative, had a great character and a fount of knowledge! Was able to answer all our questions about not just history of Florence but up to date stuff too. Tour was really relevant and some great facts. The 2 hours flew by and I wish it had been even longer!! With lovely added perk if gelato which was amazing! We would really recommend this tour to anyone on their first day in Florence gives you a great sense of where all the museums are and how to move around Florence without getting stuck in crowds on every street. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We had a wonderful 2 .5 hour tour of the city with our guide, Giagamo. He was very informative and amusing. We were the only participants so we could ask anything we wanted to know and he was very knowledgable. Excellent value for money!
We met our guide in the square and were shown the great sights of Florence. So interesting and rewarding to have the background in such a beautiful city . Lots of insights to the background f the architecture and art. Well worth it
Rosanna was an excellent Guide in a busy city. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything very well. She was very attentive to our group of 4 adults and 1 child (9 years old). She was great.
