What’s more, we are an ASTA approved, fully-licensed tour operator. We promise we are anything but ordinary, and we guarantee we are the Original & Best.

What a superb 3 hour walking tour we had of Florence with Kate. Her historical knowledge was second to none and was delivered in a clear, concise and humorous manner. This was a brilliant introduction to Florence and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

If you're visiting Florence, you really need a tour guide to put the history, art, philosophy, literature and scientific achievements into context. Artviva is a great choice.

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by

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
