Chiari was an excellent docent. She was very informative and was able to answer my many questions. She gave me a true appreciation of Florence. Definitely worth the limited time I had in Florence.

Storytellers Tour of Florence

Sylvia appears to be a great story teller and obviously loves Florence history. But, we took this tour when we first got to Florence because we thought it would be a great way to learn about the city, where to visit, what and where to eat as advertised. This was only covered in the last few minutes of the tour. Interesting, but not helpful.
