Things to know about Florence

Being one of the art and cultural centers of the world, Florence has always been an extremely popular travel city. There is no such place where you can literally travel back in time, as you experience the splendor of Renaissance and you admire some of the most beautiful monuments in all of Italy.
 
Located in central Italy and capital of the enchanting region of Tuscany, Florence lies on the Arno River, surrounded by green rolling hills that createa unique landscape. The cityis mostly famous for its compact historic centre, where lie most of the splendid attractions that tourists visiting Italy cannot miss: imposing cathedrals and basilicas, picturesque squares, narrow alleys filled with handicraft shops, and hundreds of beautifully preserved monuments and palaces.
 
Furthermore, in Florence there are somemuseums among the most important in the world, such as the universally-famous Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery that host collections of outstanding works of art, such as the David by Michelangelo, an absolute masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. 
 
But apart for its exceptional artistic patrimony, Florence is also renowned for its award winning wines and mouth-watering cuisine: wandering around the streets and alleys of the historic centre, you will be teased by the smell spreading from the pizzeria, cafes and traditional osterias that serve local wine and Florentine specialties, characterized by their simplicity and freshness. 
 
Although its dimensions are actually quite small, Florence offers so many experiences and places of interestthat you might need a couple of days to explore it: its atmosphere that will make you never want to leave.

Completo

Fuimos un grupo reducido, sólo 3 personas para el recorrido por la calle y alguna más para la visita al Palacio, lo que hizo el tour más cercano. La guía muy competente y colaboradora. Es un tour ideal para el lunes, cuando están cerrados los museos. Muy recomendable

Every bit of the tour was wonderful!

We started out going to Palazzo Michelangelo than to a Medieval town where we had the world famous gelato then onto a one hour horse back riding through the vineyards and olive groves. Our last adventure ended with a tasty gracious lunch at a wine tasting school. Every part of this tour was exciting and adventurist. Thank you for making our trip to Florence memorable.

Espectacular !!!

Yo hablo español y a pesar de ello disfrute del evento, ya que hay pocas comunicaciones, la comida de buen nivel, obvio que dan preferencia a los grupos, éramos dos parejas y nos pusieron al fondo, lo compensaron poniendo en la mesa una botella de vino tinto y otra de vino blanco

Fabulous Food Walking Tour

I had an awesome time with tour guide Beatrice, she took me through the history around town while trying out different local food in different places. My goodness, the different types of food I tried were amazing. I'm satisfied that I chose private over group option, Beatrice was beyond my expectation and found her service to be highly professional and very knowledgeable. As I got to know Beatrice during our short time, I felt her passion and love for Italy. Thank you for your time Beatrice!
