Tours

Every suggested itinerary is by foot because the town’s historical center is quite small and almost entirely pedestrianized. For your special request, I can arrange a tour with a professional driver (please note this is an additional service and  is NOT included in the standard fare). For the groups over 10 persons the head-sets are required for an additional price (usually €1,70 each for a half day, €4 for a full day).

Florence in one day

Florence in a day?! Probably, this kind of phrase could make you laugh, but what to do, if you have just one day and want to see the city’s  most famous places? Of course it’s impossible to visit all the museums, churches and parks of Florence, but I believe that even during 5 hours tour you will be able to feel “the spirit of Renaissance” and fall in love with this magnificent and unique city! This classic walking tour takes about 5-6 hours (including 1 hour break). During the last 2 hours of the tour we’ll visit the Uffizi gallery or Palatine gallery. Accademia gallery is also possible as a third option instead of the previous two (visit takes 1,5 hours).
