A little heavy but it was science and a lot to cover. Martino's knowledge was obvious.
We loved the way MArtino guided us through the Museum and later to Santa Croze. Although we had quite an understanding of the premises, we learned a lot more and were totally excited, how this deep Knowledge of our Guide was presented; Never a dull Moment!! Loved every Minute!
Martino made our visit to the Galileo Museum really interesting of everyone in our group - this was an accomplishment as our ages ranged between 14 and 80 years old. His breadth of knowledge was vast and his explanations were accessible to all. We returned to the Museum after our walk finished as a result of the interest Martino had sparked in our group.
