Excellent tour - worth every Euro

This was very enjoyable and very information 3+ hour walking tour. Our guide - ask for Kane - presented a perfect balance of historical background to make the stops on the tour come alive. A great mixture of political intrigue and art history and daily life. Why were kitchens build on the top floor? (You'll find out). The tour ended on the very spot where the Medici family met a critical turning point ( I won't spoil the story). Thank you Kane - you are very Able :-)
