My favorite tour in Italy would be the one we had in Venice. Our tour guide, Fiona, was a local Venetian and showed us how they live on a daily basis. It was pretty neat to experience their world and how they move within the city by boat. Nothing compares to it in the United States and Fiona truly captured our hearts with her passion for Venice. Of course, Giorgio in Rome was great, too. His passion for food enticed us all!
The Uffizi Gallery was my favorite tour. With Silvia we made it through the gallery with a great understanding of the highlights of the Renaissance period and she guided us as if we were going through history chronologically. On a side note: I think the Borghese Gallery with Enza Fratello is also a great tour, too.

Sally's tours with Rome Today are THE best. All of my tour guides were so phenomenal and smart and lovely that I really can't pick a favorite amongst the Vatican Museums, landmarks of St. Paul and the Coliseum/Roman Forum. Sally makes absolutely SURE that you are taken care of!
My favorite tour was in Florence given by local guide, Silvia. She did a great job keeping us engaged and took us to visit many unique sites only locals would know of. From the best coffee shop near the Duomo and markets to exquisite letter stationery and decorative paper made right before our eyes! Silvia truly gave use the Florentine experience including the up close experience of admiring Michelangelo's David at the Galleria Dell'Accademia
Definitely, the food tour with Giorgio. Understanding the cheese making process was a highlight for me. Not to mention the meal that came afterwards!
My favorite tour in Italy has to be the one we had in Florence. Silvia, our tour guide was excellent. She led us through the city like locals and organized a memorable lunch for my sister at Trattoria La Casalinga. Between the Uffizi Gallery and admiring Michelangelo's masterpiece David, she took us shopping and we met some of the local artisans including the best Florentine barista in town who blended the best coffee for each one of us.
