Gabriella was an excellent guide! It was obvious that she loves what she does and enjoys sharing her knowledge. We learned a lot from her. She was also very helpful with my Mom who had a little problem walking. I would highly recommend this tour!

Given the overwhelming positive reviews and Rick Stevens recommendation, I was truly shocked by our poor experience. Our guide was not suited for families (despite requesting a family tour). Even for adults, it was the worst tour we took during our 10 day trip. After...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
