My husband and I booked Paul for when we first arrived in Florence and the tour was AMAZING! Everything we learned from Paul made all the sights we saw in Montapulciano and Rome that much better.

This is not your typical tour. We recently took a tour with Paul Costa in Florence and found it extremely interesting and educational. Instead of just pointing out the sites, Paul challenged us to think like a Florentine in the Middle Ages.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

We are visiting Florence and Venice, with Tuscany in between, in early October. Do you just do day tours or do you plan entire tour itineraries? Thank you.
