Private full day tour

The most comfortable way to explore Florence at your own pace! While small, Florence contains a quarter of the planet's UNESCO world heritage sites, which can be overwhelming for first-time visitors. When going to Florence, you're in for a real treat!This walking tour is meant for people who love to explore places off the beaten track together with the must-see places. Uffizi and Accademia are part of this tour. Also, there will be a break for lunch!
UFFIZI AND ACCADEMIA ARE CLOSED ON MONDAYS but you can contact me for other ideas!
Please book this tour at least 10 days before because museums are pretty booked and I dont want you to miss out. This way I will make reservations as soon as I hear from you.


A fascinating walk through the historical center of the city where we'll touch all the must-see places, combined with the visit of the Accademia, famous for Michelangelo's David. We'll be also visting the Uffizi Gallery:one of the most important painting collections in the world. The walk includes the religious center (the Baptistry, the Duomo and Giotto's Bell-tower), as well as the political center (Piazza della Signoria) and the old bridge "Pontevecchio". With this particular tour, we will be walking also to Pitti Palace, Santa Croce square and the big market of San Lorenzo. There will be some time for lunch.
I would like to remind you to be properly dressed if visiting churches.
In particular, remember to cover your shoulders and to avoid wearing shorts.
