Paul is hands down the #1 guide in Italy. He made the city come alive and had a historical insight on every street corner. I still remember all of the stories about the Medici family. Trip in Aug 2015

Paul was by far the best guide we had on a two week tour of Germany and Italy! His history knowledge was unbelievable!! A definite must to go with him to be your tour guide!

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
