Jerry was our tour guide and he is extremely knowledgeable. Our tour was fabulous
The Palm Cottage in a Naples Treasure. Very close to the pier. The very old house has seen the tremendous transformation of Naples into a world class resort destination. A docent tour of the house adds so much to the history that this house exudes. They also have a extensive collection of OLD Naples pictures that are a delight to see. You will enjoy the tour.
