Probably the best 3 hours of our vacation. Brenda put it context the history, stories, art, buildings and built a fantastic picture of her home city of Firenze. Absolutely worth every penny ( cent, I'm English) Mille Grazie Brenda Andy and Nicola

Liz was a fabulous guide and so knowledgeable! We learned SO MUCH about how the art changed over the centuries. I will never look at a painting the same way again. My whole family came away with such a positive experience. Highly recommend!

We booked two Artviva tours while in Florence/Tuscany. Tuscan day trip/wine tasting and Accademia. Both were outstanding. Marissa on our Tuscan tour was awesome. We would do both tours again!

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
