We loved the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, and we loved our guide Valeria just as much! Her love of art, history and the Uffizi Gallery was inspiring and so informative. We could not have had a better tour or tour guide!

Fantastic tour. Our guide Hilde was a constant stream of fascinating information with contextual history. Well worth the expense and time. We plan to come back to Florence again and when we do...we will book Hilde again.

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

Our groups were never more than 10 people. It was a great size and we had headphones so we could hear our guide at all times. Highly recommend this company! Have fun!🍷
