Our tour (with Olga) was very interesting. The exhibition essentially consists of the David sculpture (you should know that) and a few unfinished works by Michelangelo. Olga understood very well how to convey the historical and biographical background in a concise and entertaining manner and to include little anecdotes. Very well prepared, very professional, very pleasant and personal atmosphere and, above all, linguistically (even for non-native speakers) very easy to understand.
