She met us at our hoteWe visited in mid-March and enjoyed a lovely walking tour with our guide, Ellen. It was just our family of four-which was nice. She met us at our hotel in the city. She took us to most of the major sites and a couple of sites we would have missed without her. She was knowledgeable and understanding when our teenage boys wanted to move the gelato stop to an earlier time. When we went to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's David, her enthusiasm was contagious. She explained the sculptures that lined the way and gave us lots of info. It was a nice way to spend a few hours learning about the beautiful city. Thank you!!..more
