We had the tour in English and it was funny, entertaining and very personal. Elisabetta patiently answered to all our questions and added a lot of her knowledge even beyond the strict argins of the topic of the tour. It was a really eye opening experience, we see Firenze from a different perspective now. Highly recommend for all lovers of History and suspenseful true crime stories 😉

This tour was brilliant! The Medici family is very complicated and has a vast entwining history but Elisabetta was very knowledgable, friendly and clearly passionate about the subject. She is a great storyteller and made everything very clear, I came away from the tour with a much better understanding of the Medici family. Thank you Elisabetta :)
