What a great afternoon spent at this art workshop! Hector, the artist, did an awesome job. I was traveling on vacation in Florence with my 18 year old daughter - this was a wonderful activity to do, and together. When we first met Hector, he shared with us his beautiful rooftop view of the bridges and skyline of Florence. He was so kind and hospitable to do that - he knew we would be in awe from this breathtaking site. A great way to get inspired to be creative and make a fresco. Hector was delightful - so amiable and informative. Our workshop included a history on frescos and the way they were constructed throughout history was exactly the same way we made ours. This was a terrific workshop - we learned so much and had a fun and enjoyable time creating and painting our mini works of art that we will enjoy home and treasure.

This was one of my favorite tours possibly ever. Hector was a terrific host and teacher. Very patient and encouraging. A very relaxing way to spend some time in Florence. His rooftop is incredible and inspirational. My daughter also loved it and we were both amazed at our finished products. So much fun.

Perfect tour in a charming old residence building, had a three hour private workshop with Stefano. It was amazing!
