Peter and I wish to thank you for your erudite tour of the Uffizi Gallery and for the walking tour of other important landmarks in the area of the Piazza della Signoria. Your detailed knowledge of art history, artists individual training, style, techniques and materials used and the history of the ItalianByzantine and Renaissance eras helped us gain new levels of understanding and appreciation of the many icons and other works we viewed from the Italian masters. Touring the churches, buildings and public spaces with you gave us a detailed view of the architectural styles, elements and functionality along with the personalization found within and on facades that denoted ownership, family crests and other symbolization important to the owners.
