Susanna was such a wonderful guide to Dante in Florence and to the sources of the Divine Comedy. We loved her passion for the city and for Dante's role in creating modern Italian. We would love to have her as our guide again!
Excellent tour. Martino brought the era of Dante alive.
Kristin was great and just what I was looking for. The other tours seemed to focus on Dan Brown, and I wanted a true Dante scholar, a tour that wasn't distorted by 20th century pop fiction. She was knowledgable, funny, and very informative and challenged many ideas in the criticism and in my head. I learned so much that I feel I have to come back to Florence and spend more time in the areas she pointed out. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a serious study in the world of Dante. It was expensive but totally worth it. Money well spent for a bucket list opportunity.
