We've attended a Renaissance tour with Daniel. The tour was very interactive and we had a lot of fun, because our guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. Despite the weather was rainy, we have only positive impressions.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
