We did a walking tour with Paul with a group and LOVED every second. Very informative, engaging and fun. We aren't the museum type crowd but Paul made it fascinating and it flew by. I will never look at the David Statue the same again....More

Paul's tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. It was quite informative, yet Paul was able to deliver the history and details in a fun and insightful manner. I would and have highly recommended Paul's tours to anyone.

I highly recommend Paul Costas Tuscantourguide service. We are three old ladies and we hired him for personal tours of the Academia and the Uffizi. Paul made these paintings come alive providing background information and the history of some of the artists and their subjects....More

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
