Join us exploring Florence!
The tour will start from Signoria Square and I will lead you to the discovery of the most important and famous sites and monuments of the city.
The Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Republic Square and the Duomo Complex are just some of the places we will explore and learn about.
Follow me walking around the city and jump into the history and art of Florence.
At the end of the tour an amazing Italian ice cream (or a cappuccino if you prefer something hot) will wait for you!
Other things to note
The WHOLE city center is since 1982 in the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, so you are going to visit a real museum at the open air!

For about 20 years I have been working as a tour guide in Florence and I have to say this is the best job in the world. Foreign languages and history of art have always been my passion, Florence and Tuscany my pride.
That's why a few years ago I opened my own personal Tour Operator, ACCORD Italy Smart Tours & Experiences, specialized in Incoming services. Since then I realized that sharing my love for my hometown and my region with visitors from all over the world is a real vocation.
Now the work is huge and since I'm more and more busy designing new tours and experiences for my guests, I often ask for collaboration with good colleagues who can welcome you in my place. It is important to know that they are all professionals and above all they share with me the same passion and enthusiasm for my land.

Valeria, la guida che ci ha accompagnati per Firenze, è stata al tempo stesso estremamente professionale e appassionata nel raccontarci la città. Assolutamente consigliata come guida.

Olesia was amazing! Really friendly and knowledgeable. We walked all around the city learning about its history and culture. The whole group really enjoyed it! It was a great way to get to know the city. Plus the ice cream at the end of the tour 😊 Also, the headphones while they were a bit faulty in the very start, proved to be really useful in the crowed sites we were walking in. We all recommend this tour.

Our guide was Manuela not Simone. She was genuinely nice and very knowledgeable about Florence and its rich history. It was fascinating to hear about the evolution of the historic sites, the sculptures and the influence of the Medici family. Manuela was a perfect tour guide and even waited patiently in the rain for a tour participant who was late for nearly 1/2 hr without betraying any signs of impatience ...very professional. In the end it turned out that she was waiting in the wrong area. Note to tour participants- being on time for a group tour is basic consideration as there are others waiting for you. For us, we had to wait in the rain ....with a flu!

This experience was very enjoyable! We learned so much in such a short amount of time. Our host, Rebecca was very knowledgeable and personable. I loved that we had a small group too, this made it more enjoyable. We did have trouble finding her at first because we thought we were meeting a man named Simone based on the Airbnb information. I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants an overview of the city highlights!
