Really enjoyed our walking tour, it was complete and the pace was right. Florence is small compared to Rome, but I would recommend using this company as they were friendly with our emails and the guide was good!

We only had a day in florence. We went on two tours and they were both excellent. The walking tour was a great way to get an overview of the city. The museum highlights were helpful so we didnt get overwhelmed.

My wife and I enjoyed the one day tour and background of 3 Tuscany towns, including Siena and San Gimignano, Ella from Artviva was great as she gave many historical and cultural points about each area. We also enjoyed a great lunch and wine tasting....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
