My husband and I took this walking tour in a group of 10-12 people. Manolis was amazing! What knowledge! What passion! Highly recommend.

I took the David tour with Manolis and thoroughly enjoyed it, he's an engaging, interesting tour guide who covered a lot more than just David -- the history of the city, the museum, Michelangelo's life, the politics of art and much more. Definitely recommended, definitely...More

We went on the evening wine and murder tour. It was more of a history and informative tour vs the sordid murder history of Florence, but it didn't matter. It was a great walk and we learned a lot of information that put all the...More

Outstanding. It ended up being a private tour and Catherine kept us entertained the entire time. So far the best tour in Firenze. We will always look at history differently now. And we thought the rich are warped now! I would recommend this tour over...More

Without Tatianna, our guide, this would have been "just another tour". She was so enthusiastic that I was hanging on to every word she said. If she were my history teacher in school I would have paid attention and gotten all A's. Thank you ArtViva...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

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!🍷
