Honestly, our guide Debbie was much better than our other guides in the "paid tours". We learned SO MUCH interesting things. I booked another tour with La Bussola 5 minutes after ending the afternoon tour with Debbie.

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

Most people on my tour paid roughly 10 Euro per person (though we paid 15 Euro, since we liked our tour very much).
