Our group of four women joined an ArtViva walking tour of Florence and highly recommend it. Our knowledge of art history was little to none and we came away feeling like we knew a lot more about the history of Florence and important events that...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
