Took a tour with Joanna through the Uffizi. I don't usually bother with guided tours (they cost a lot of money, you can just see everything from yourself, etc.), but I actually learned a lot and had a great time on this one. If you're interested in art but you don't have a strong background in Renaissance art specifically, I... More

We had a family tour at the Uffizi Gallery with Sara - who was an incredible story teller that kept everyone enthralled!! The kids (aged 7,14 and 16) were interested every step of the gallery - as were the adults. Thanks Sara for a great morning where we all learnt to appreciate the art on display. Also for the wonderful... More

We had a few extra hours in Florence and decided to book Freya for the Florence walking tour. It was undoubtedly the best choice made! She was able to explain so much we would have completely missed. She is so enthusiastic and passionate about her job it made for the most interesting and exciting tour we had on this 9... More

We did the Pitti Palace (Riccardo), Highlights (Sara) and Uffuzi (Jo) on successive days with 2 young kids in tow (except the Uffuzi where our youngest didn't come). They were all wonderful. Not just knowledgeable but also sensitive to the audience (ie the attention span of the kids). Well organised by Brandi. Would like to return and so some more... More

Simply put, this is the best tour company I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. From the setting up of our dates, through to the tours themselves, my girlfriend and I couldn't have been happier with Freya's Florence. We booked the Uffizi tour for one day and the Florence at Dusk tour for another. We had Sara as our... More

Freya’s Florence was a joy to work with, and Riccardo was an exceptional guide. The Uffizi Gallery and Academia weren’t part of the group tour my husband and I were taking, so we scheduled a private tour with Freya’s Florence. An eleventh-hour change in our group tour’s schedule caused a conflict with our appointment with Freya’s Florence. Freya understood the... More

We are two couples who were staying in Rome and wanted to do a day trip to Florence. We booked the tour online and we were pleased with how accommodating, friendly and responsive the office team was. Our guide Sara met us at the train station and we began our Florence Overture Tour from there. It was absolutely magical. Sara... More

We booked a private tour in advance with Freya's Florence since we were only going to be in Florence for 3 days and weren't too familiar with its history/art. We were lucky enough to get Sarah as our tour guide and she was seriously AMAZING! Her passion & incredible expertise were surpassed by none (we had three private tours on... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
