Allesandra was informative, professional and personable. In addition to an excellent tour, we enjoyed delightful lunch conversation. Allesandra has a unique strategy. It goes something like this: There are thousands of pieces of art in the Uffifi and Pitti Palace. Rather than rushing through and trying to see all or most of them, she focuses on 10 or 12 of the true masterpieces and uses them to explain the remarkable evolution of Renaissance art in Florence. It was an exceptional way to understand Florence’s impact the arts. Her love of art was infectious. We parted at the end of the day not simply with more knowledge of Renaissance art, but with a deeper appreciation of it. Thank you, Allesandra.
Loved Alessandra! Excellent in her descriptions and explanations, and dealt with my physical limitations kindly. The day was a long one, but very worthwhile.
