    This is a very good tour if you'd like an overview of Florence and the main spots connected to the Medicis. Plus, there are lots of quirky/cool details that the guide points out! We had lots of fun and I would recommend!

    Great tour through the centuries of the Medici. Victoria was very knowledgeable and was able to give us an interesting insight into the history of the city and art. Many many thanks.
