...you must hire Paul to walk you through the Uffizi and also to discuss The David. But also, his tour of Florence includes so much more, and he can tailor the tour to your interests. This is actually the second time I have hired Paul. On this trip, we were on a cruise and docked in Livorno for the day. Paul had a driver pick us up: Paolo---he was GREAT! Very funny and a good driver (a plus in Italy). We had a fun time discussing music with him (Lynard Skynard, Rolling Stones, etc...). He took us to Florence where we met up with Paul. My sister is an artist and majored in art/sculpture in college, so we focused our tour on art. Paul has advanced degrees in art history, etc... so he gave us an in depth tour of the Uffizi and of course, the David in the Accademia. We also walked around and discussed Florence history, the Ponte Vecchia bridge. We had time for a delicious lunch, then Paulo picked us up and took us to Pisa for a short photo op. Then we were back to the ship. I highly recommend Tuscan Tour Guide (obviously, since I have hired him twice in the last 2 years). You will not be disappointed! Helpful hint when traveling in Europe: have change available (5c,10c, 20c, 50c, 1 Euro coins) for toilets. This can really become an issue if you only have large bills like 20's.
