Gabriella was an excellent guide! It was obvious that she loves what she does and enjoys sharing her knowledge. We learned a lot from her. She was also very helpful with my Mom who had a little problem walking. I would highly recommend this tour!

Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
