Our guide, Ishmael was wonderful. He was very engaging and taught us so much about Florence. There were many sites and information packed into this tour, so it was wonderful that so much was covered in the tour. Would certainly recommend Artviva to anyone visiting...More
Your walking tour begins in central Florence at the ArtViva office, near Piazza della Repubblica, where you’ll greet your guide and receive an introduction to the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region.
As you visit highlights such as Giotto’s Bell Tower, Baptistery (Battistero), and the Duomo, you’ll hear tales of feuding painters, Medici rulers, and religious fanatics who all left their mark on the city, and get a history of Italian cuisine.
As you stroll through quaint piazzas and down hidden backstreets, you’ll get insider tips regarding gelato shops and the best restaurants and bars from your guide. The walking tour concludes at Piazza del Duomo.
Plan ahead as shoulders and knees (for men and women) must be covered when entering sacred sites.
