Very interesting tour of the Medici Chapels. We loved seeing the Michaelangelo statues. Ricardo was very knowledgeable of Florence and the history of the Medici. Private tours are the way to go, especially with the skip the line feature. The guide can really give you the back story and explain what you are looking at.

Leonardo our guide was very instructive, he did his utmost to create parallels between history and current events. It allowed us to appreciate the political context of the time and took great care to point out other monuments worthy of relief from the xona.
