Die Führung selbst mit unserem Guide Rossella war phantastisch. Sie erzählte uns kindgerecht die Geschichte der Boboligärten und ein paar andere interessante Geschichten über die Geschichte von Florenz. Die Buchung über getyourguide war allerdings sehr abenteuerlich. Wir buchten zunächst die "normale" Tour, die dann kurzfristig abgesagt wurde wegen unzureichender Teilnehmerzahl ( daher Punktabzug, sonst wären es 5 Sterne) Glücklicherweise konnten wir dieses Ereignis noch auf private Tour umbuchen ( im Gegensatz zur Uffizientour). Natürlich erheblich teurer! Aber Dank Rossella hab ich es nicht bereut. Tipp: am besten gleich die private Tour buchen, dann ist man wenigstens nicht enttäuscht .

Nous avons passé un excellent moment Avec notre guide Giacomo.

Nous avons réalisé cette visite avec notre fille de 12 ans. Notre guide Giacomo était excellent aussi bien par ses connaissances que par sa gentillesse. Cette visite du jardin était une coupure très agréable dans le fil de nos visites de musée et très appréciée par notre fille.
