Francesca is a very friendly guide with a lot of knowledge of the city, the buildings and their history. The city was to crowdy to enjoy it fully. But Francesca showed us the best highlights in a 3 hour tour.

I have been on many guided tours around multiple cities but my guide was amazing this time. He was so knowledgeable, nice and genuinely excited to showcase the city and it's amazing art. I learnt so much from him. These things can be borning sometimes even if you love history but my guide made it enjoyable and shared information in such a relatable way that I could not help but be engaged for the full tour. I got to hear the history behind what seemed to be just a normal sign and had I done a walling tour alone I surely would have missed out on its beauty and understanding. Would highly recommend 👌

The Academia and the David never fails to impress The issues was that the City Centre tour was very slow with a lot of time standing around listening to the guides personal views. There is so much to see in Florence so we left the tour at the Duomo.

Barbera was a darling! So much useful information, very patient and kind. Gave everyone the opportunity to ask questions if they wanted. Super Galleria tour, fabulous City Walking tour, not too long! We learned so much! Thank you, Firenze!

This tour with an expert local guide covers the highlights of Florence’s historic and artistic epicenter.

Timeless masterpieces at Accademia

Involve yourself in the splendors of the Accademia Gallery, where Michelangelo's masterpiece, the David, stands tall alongside other captivating works like I Prigioni and San Matteo. Witness the young Michelangelo's three-year journey to carve this iconic symbol of Renaissance beauty, a powerful testament to strength, courage, and the Florentine Republic's invincibility. Other unique artworks like Tree of Life by Pacino di Buonaguida are not to be missed.

A Florentine stroll

Explore the enchanting Medici district, home to the awe-inspiring palace, the ancient San Lorenzo Church, and the Medici Chapels, where the illustrious family found solace in their own monuments. Venture to the Duomo Complex, where the Baptistery's ‘Gates of Paradise’, Brunelleschi's Dome, and Giotto's bell tower showcase Florence's architectural grandeur.

Stroll through medieval streets, once trodden by Dante and Beatrice, and marvel at the unique Church of Orsanmichele, adorned with statues representing medieval trading guilds. Experience the charm of the Straw Market, and don't forget to give the famous porcellino (pig) a nose rub for good luck.

Continue your journey across the romantic Ponte Vecchio, adorned with sparkling jewelers, leading to the breathtaking Piazza Signoria. Marvel at the majestic Palazzo Vecchio and its iconic Arnolfo tower, surrounded by an ‘open-air museum’ featuring the Fountain of Neptune, Michelangelo's David replica, and the Loggia dei Lanzi's ancient Roman statues! Florence's treasures await, leaving you breathless at every turn.
