Paul's tour was extraordinary. I spent four month studying art history in Florence as a college student, and took more away from Paul's four hour tour than I did a semester of classes. Can't be missed. Still talking about..

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
