What to expect
  • Connect with your private guide at your Florence hotel in the morning, and set off by foot on a walking tour of the city’s historic heart, where time seems to have frozen for centuries. Make your way to the central square of Piazza Della Signoria, presided over by the towering Palazzo Vecchio. In the Loggia dei Lanzi open-air museum, admire statuary by renowned Florentine sculptors like Cellini and Giambologna. Pass through the colonnade of the Uffizi Gallery, a former palace that now houses one of the world's most important collections of Renaissance art. Browse goldsmiths’ shops and take in views of the Arno River from the romantic Ponte Vecchio bridge, and explore the mysterious Vasari Corridor. One of Florence’s best-kept secrets, this passageway was once used by Medici rulers to travel discretely from the Palazzo Vecchio to the Pitti Palace across the river. Pass by the former residence of famous poet Dante Alighieri on the way to Piazza del Duomo, where several of the city’s architectural masterpieces are clustered. Learn the fascinating history behind St. John's Baptistery, Giotto’s Bell Tower, and the Florence Cathedral, capped by Brunelleschi’s magnificent dome. Throughout the 3-hour tour, your private group can set the pace and make ample use of your guide’s extensive knowledge of Florentine history and lore.

Dec 2018 • Family
Alessandro, our guide, was outstanding. It was a Monday (the only day we had free), and most of the museums were closed. On top of that it was raining softly all day. This could have - should have - been a nightmare. Alessandro made it a dream. We've had private guided tours all over the world and never had a better tour guide. Alessandro is deeply knowledgeable, and showed us aspects of Renaissance Florence we could have never known were there: secret, hidden doors in walls, coats of arms of rival families, the backstory of so many buildings and bridges; the guilds and artists and patrons - he made Renaissance Florence come alive. Alessandro was not mailing it in. He was attentive and interesting and engaged. None of the pushy, bossy attitude, or the ennui that sometimes infects guides. Can't say enough good things about the guy.
