To really understand the history of Florence you need a knowledgeable guide. Paul is a passionate Florentine who unravels the magic of Florence in an amusing, informative manner. His tours are excellent. Forget the rest, go with the best.

This was our third trip to Florence. On our first visit we thought we "knew it all". Do some research, download an app, pick up a guide book, what a mistake. It took us forever and we didn't see much at all. On our second visit we heard about Paul Costa from a TV show back here in Boston, "The... More

Paul was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide through Florence - he made our time even more special. Paul also organized a very memorable day trip to Verrazano winery where we experienced the beauty of the Tuscan hills and ate & drank a meal for kings- all around Paul offerred a fantastic way to experience Italy.

Yesterday, my friends and I were lucky enough to have discovered Paul Cosa on Tripadvisor and managed to get a place on a tour of Florence with him. What a teacher! Within five minutes, he had us all enthralled with the history of the renaissance! I have never met anyone who has captivated people as he does when he teaches.... More

Paul was an amazing guide. Although I had been to Florence before- never had I really 'seen' Florence until I took Paul's walking tour. It is not to be missed! He is bright, fun and informative . Don't miss his tour if you are going!! It is a must.
