Leonardo was on time, very energetic, knows what he is talking about and the little stories that he told us during the visit went beyond the history of the duomo, we learned a lot about Florence, this wonderful city. The visit with Leonardo went beyond our expectations, he answered all our questions around art and history and we can wholeheartedly recommend him as a guide.

We felt so fortunate to have an individual tour with Leonardo! During our climb of El Duomo he shared with us important historical facts about the construction of this beautiful cathedral and once we got to the top we were able to take in the breathtaking views and learn even more about other historical monuments that we could see, which brought the city of Florence to life for us. We highly recommend this tour.
