Although it has been six months since our visit to Florence where Paul Costa was our guide, we all find that now we look at works of art in a new way. In order to appreciate the intentions of the artist, Paul encouraged us to...More
I stopped into Florence for 2 nights. On the day of arrival I arranged a private car with Paul's team to carry me to Pisa, San Gimignano and Siena. Paul was great to work with, flexible and helpful to plan the itinerary. The morning I...More

My family and I have been to Florence many times so it was time to see and experience more than the David and Uffizi so we hired the services of Custom Florence Tours. We could not have been any happier with our guide Paul! His...More
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
