      Extraordinary tour both in terms of history and landscapes. We were guided by the talented Elena who, in perfect English, guided us through the beauties of the Church of S. Maria del Fiore and illustrated the wonderful panorama that we could admire at the end of the 463 steps to get to the dome. Experience to do !!!

      Victoria was an amazing tour guide. Nonetheless, from looking at the magnificent Cathedral outside decor, the inside fell short of expectations. The same is true for the baptistery.
