While on a cruise to Italy,my wife and I did the walking tour of Florence. We cannot say enough about how good our guide, Sylvia, was getting there almost ruined the experience. We were picked up with our group in Livorno. Everything on the trip into the city was great. No traffic, making time. Got into Florence and our driver had no idea of how to get to the office to start our tour. We circled around one spot 4 times. One hour in Florence trying to find the office. Extremely disheartening. Finally found the office and Sylvia took over. She was a wealth of information, able to describe the history, use and little known facts of buildings we were walking by. Though she had to speed up tour because we were late and we had an appointment at Academia she didn't skip a beat and put up with our group even though we were cranky due to arriving late. The tour is great because it is up close and with a small group. At Academia she explained the highlights and then let us roam freely to thoroughly enjoy this wonderful museum and see the David up close.
