Florence Full Day Private Tour


Tour Number

Activity Level



Museums / Culture, First Time Visitor, City


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.
Please note that Flornece is NOT completely handicap friendly. I have done several tour with clients in wheelchairs accompanied by a "strong accompaning person" able to navigate the often bumpy cobblestone streets and "not so great" ramps. In many places elevators are available.
The tours have been "sucessful".

Maximum travelers: 6

a private custom guided tour of Florence

This tour of Florence can be customized to fit your interests and time schedule. We can see any number of Florence's marvelous sites, whether they are the "must see's" or the hidden treasures.
I will make a special itinerary for you that we can decide upon together.
We can include museums, churches, the synagogue, squares with incredible views, great monuments, little artisan shops, the central food market, charming little side streets and more.


The customizable itinerary can include some of the "must sees" in Florence like the Cathedral and Baptistry, Old Bridge, Signoria Square, Orsanmichele Church, the Wool Guild, Palazzo Strozzi, the Trinità church, the Medici Chapels, the Accademia Gallery and Uffizi Gallery.
We can also visit some of the major churches ( like Santa Maria Novella, Santa Croce, San Lorenzo or Santa Maria del Carmine) or wonderful gardens - I particularly like the Bardini Garden.
We can choose to include some artisan shops and some of the hidden treasures like Benozzo Gozzoli's frescos in the Medici-Riccardi Palace or the Oratory of the Buonomini.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tours by Locals is a great idea and Laura is a knowledgeable guide for Florence and we do not think we could have chosen better. I initially chose her as, being born in America, we reckoned we wouldn't have difficulty in understanding her. It was a good decision. Laura organised a sensible itinerary and helped us buy the "Firenze Cards" that facilitated entry to the various sites. We think she provided more than she was was obliged to provide. No hesitation in recommending her.
