Martino was great. There is much to learn in the Galileo museum, and Martino did an excellent job of explaining things to my wife and I. He also was excellent in engaging our 14-year-old grandson. Martino told us at the beginning that his usual practice was to spend most of the time in the Galileo museum but to also walk over to the Santa Croce church, where Galileo, Michelangelo and other Renaissance greats are buried; but when we told him we had already visited the church, he adapted his presentation to spend more time in explaining things to us in the museum itself.
Martino is very special with children, he explains complex things about Galileo in a simple way. My daughter loved the tour.
Excellent knowledgeable guide. I am so glad to use Context.
