While in Florence we discovered an unexpected treasure. Our tour with Paul Costa was an amazing blend of Florence’s art treasures. Along with interesting perspectives on the art, Paul incorporated the political history of why the art was created. Paul is an excellent tour guide....More

Phenomenal tour in a phenomenal city (Florence). Paul made a special trip even more special. And, the tours and tour guides in Venice and Rome were fantastic as well. Great company.
