We had an exceptional tour with Alessandro, He imparted so much knowledge concerning the history of the garden, why it was situated where it is, as well as it’s significance to the Doge and the community, that we know we would have missed if we’d just wandered through it on our own. Moreover, he was able to point out the significance of the important statues in the garden, as well as the distant buildings which we could view from the garden, We highly recommend Alessandro and this tour.

A wonderful change from museums and churches.

Our guide was an absolute delight. Incredibly knowledgeable about the gardens, Florentine history, and all manner of related things. For every question asked she had an informative, interesting answer! Best tour of our holiday
