Map

There is no better way to experience the incredible artworks in Florence than with a professional local guide who can bring the works of the masters to life.  Away from the crowds, our guides are Florentine scholars who have dedicated their professional lives to the the legacy of the Florentine master painters and sculptors like Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphaello and so many others. 

Florence quite literally is an open-air gallery and is home to some of the most important art works in western civilization. It is not in every city in Italy we recommend doing tours at all, however in Florence it is truly worth every penny to experience a private tour with a local expert historian who provides an intimate experience unlike any other that we offer.

The tour starts in the morning at the Accademmia gallery, home to Michelangelo's David, where we reserve VIP skip the line tickets that allow you to by-pass the lines and crowds and head straight in with your guide.  After experiencing Davide and the other famous works here, we move through the historical centre of Florence which is quite literally an open-air gallery of one beautiful work of art or sculpture after another.  Piazza Signoria for example is home to dozens of beautiful statues and sculpture that your guide will be able to explain the significance of.  

From here, we move into the Uffizi galleries, where again you will have the possibility to by-pass the lines with the VIP tickets we book in advance.  The Uffizi (once the official offices of the Medici family) is an incredible gallery, consisting of 2 separate sections, 3 floors each, which your guide will lead you through, revealing some of the highlights and explaining the history and lives of their creators, often captivating and in many instances truly inspiring.

The tour concludes at the Uffizi gallery, after which you will have time for lunch and to explore the city of Florence known throughout the world for its fine craftsmanship, wonderful shopping opportunities and some of the finest food in Italy.
