This is simply the best our I've ever been on. Cynzia was unbelievably knowledgeable. She answered every question with precise, detailed answers. She provided an unbelievable amount of historic context for each of the pieces we saw. I was impressed by the way she built up our "renaissance art alphabet" toolkit before we got to the Sistine chapel so that we had a better appreciation for what we were seeing. For someone coming in with very little knowledge or appreciation of renaissance art, I was impressed, moved, and enthralled. More than anything, I appreciated her deep knowledge of the personal history of each of the individual artists to help us understand how they developed their aesthetic over time.
One note. The earsets were INVALUABLE. Every tour should include these. It allowed Cynzia "to be in our heads." And most importantly, we didn't have to strain to hear. No question in my mind that this helped us to maintain a high level of interest in the tour.
I've never been a big believer in tours, but I am going to book an Eternal Tour for Florence (our next leg). Any reccomendations on the right tour guide?
