The tour itself was very good with a knowledgeable guide. However, they had changed time so we had to contact get your guide. They had probably sent emails and tried to call but we had not received anything. I had entered the correct number. Two hours later, it was over anyway

Emanuela was a very knowledgable historian and friendly guide. Very highly recommended.

Loved it! Just wish we would have booked sooner to climb the Duomo.
