Nous recommandons sans hésitation Elisabetta pour une visite magique sur les Médicis. Une visite passionnante sur cette famille qui a donné une renommée à cette cité. Nous allons regarder Florence avec un autre œil, car les Médicis sont partout dans cette ville. De plus, nous sommes français et Elisabetta parle très bien le français. Vraiment top 😊 !

We really enjoyed the Medici History Tour. It was very informative and we learned a lot about the family that helped build the city of Florence. We also found the amount of walking to be very manageable.

Bellissima esperienza. Narrazione avvincente e i giorni successivi vedevamo con altri occhi il centro di Firenze, perché l’impronta dei Medici è davvero ovunque in tutto il centro storico e grazie a lei abbiamo imparato a notarlo! Lei è molto gentile, disponibile, socievole e ci ha totalmente coinvolti, rispondendo anche a tutte le nostre domande! Ve lo consiglio, non vi annoierete!

Elisabetta was extremely knowledgeable and taught us a lot we wouldn’t have learned on our own. She knew answers to every question and could name specific facts/dates off the top of her head. Overall the tour was informative and casual. Would do again.
