Alessandro was top rate in every way. He was knowledgeable, flexible, friendly and a pleasure to spend a day with. He was in contact before our trip and kept the line of communication open. He is a native of Florence and his lifetime of exposure to the area was evident at every turn. In addition to knowing a lot, he showed a genuine enthusiasm for his work and for his native territory. You could not choose a better person to guide you around this beautiful part of the world.
