Looking to spend an hour, up to a full-day, to experience the beauty of Renaissance Florence? Florence is usually overrun with tourists, and so many of the options for tours and excursions and events are, well, boilerplate. We believe that we offer all sorts of unique Florence private tours, and we guarantee you will not find tours like this anywhere else.


Some of our featured, custom tours include:


  • Heaven, Hell, & Everything Inbetween- an immersion into the Duomo Complex of Florence (Baptistry, Cathedral, Museum, with optional tower or cupola climb, or visit to the art restoration labs)​
  • Florence Orientation tour- a walking tour perfect for the day you arrive in this small gem of a city! You can enjoy the orientation on foot, or on bike or electric scooter (at additional cost)
  • Church-y Florence- did you know that the best way to experience masterpiece art & architecture, and to keep it from being boring is to see it <<in situ>>?  This means seeing it on site, where it is meant to be seen.  Get out of the museums & walk around to the churches where Florence's most magnificent Renaissance art is displayed
  • Almost-secret of Florence- Not on everyone's must-do list, but not quite unknown.  My favorite museums in Florence are not the must-sees, but rather the authentic spectacular places like the Convento San Marco or the Palazzo dei Medici. Come explore them with me, and then cap it off with the not-so-well known corners and shops of the Florence leather & food markets
  • Major Museums' Highlights- Everyone wants to see the Uffizi Museum & the David in the Academia.  We will take you there and keep it as light and fun as possible, steering you away from the crowds and keeping it to highlights-highlights-highlights!
  • Artisanal Florence- Steeped in tradition as a city born of crafts guilds, get over to the Oltrarno and visit quaint shops and piazzas and enotecas that make Florence so darn charming.

...but remember, we can design & customize anything to your wishes!
