We visited the Uffici yesterday with Mario. We learned so many interesting things about historic art. The way Mario guided us showed he is enthusiastic and has profound knowledge of Florence. Wen enjoyed every single minute of our tour.

My husband and I went to the top of the Duomo in a group with Mario. He has great historical explanations and is clearly very knowledgeable. He even said he was in the process of writing a book! I really would have enjoyed being able to go on an walking tour of the city with him because I think it would have been very interesting but we were sadly out of time in Florence.

If you do choose to go on a city walking tour in the summer, I'd recommend seeing if there are any in the evening. Florence was hotter than we expected and the sun is harsh.

We had a fantastic tour at the Duomo in Florence with Mario, our guide. He has broad knowledge of art and architecture and is currently even writing a book.

Mario is very enthusiastic and can also be booked as a private guide to another part of Florence. He is really good! Mario, thanks for the memorable experience.

We arrived for a day trip in Florence and knew we would have to wait in line but were quite shocked at how long of a one! It was extremely hot that day so when we were approached by a member of Italy With Us, we decided to take them up on their offer. We were able to join a small group, which shortened our wait time significantly. Our guide was a professor who provided fascinating background information, far more than we would have found on our own. Since the whole city was very busy and crowded, it was worth the expense to have our visit a bit more organized.

Mariogesù Fantacci was our guide. He's nice, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He did a nice job! I highly recommend the tour.
