Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. The tour and explanations are more geared for adults but can be easily modified for older children. This is not a "kid's tour

Friendly: Yes.
Florence is not completely handicap friendly. The museums have elevators and ramps, but the city streets are paved with cobblestones and they are not always in perfect condition. Most sidewalks are wide enough, but not all. I have done this tour with clients in wheelchairs and it is relatively easy.

Maximum travelers: 8

A Recent Review of this tour

This lady was dynamite! The tours of the Uffizi and Academia Galleries were made more interesting by Laura's cherry picking the important pieces and going in length about their history, the artist background, Roman mythology impact, the Renaissance and Florence's importance in the world. We highly recommend her services!
