      This is one of those destinations where you absolutely should do a tour to make the most of it. Loved our tour with Leonardo. He was fantastic and super engaging. We learned so much! So many fun facts about the Medici family (& we had a good chat about the Medici netflix series too!). Highly recommend the tour and extra shoutouts to our fantastic guide!

      Our guided tour was very special as it was just the two of us (my husband and I). Our guide, Martina, was very punctual and told us in detail the history of the Medici who inhabited the palace. It took illustrative materials and figures to help our understanding. We love it.

      Fantastic tour. Our guide Leonardo was so passionate and made the tour so entertaining. Best tour we have done in Florence.
