Florence Tours

Florence tours provide visitors to this famous city in central Italy the option of shaping ideal, personal itineraries that allow them to see exactly what appeals to them. There is so much to do in Florence, from exploring the vast galleries and museums filled with prized Renaissance art, to leisurely strolling the gardens and parks along the Arno River as you take in lovely vistas of the Renaissance palazzi and other amazing architecture. You can opt for a Florence private tour and there are a wide variety of Florence guided tours as well.

For some of the attractions it is advisable to have along a guide. For instance, if you decide to take an Arno River cruise tour, you will have a knowledgeable guide to explain the significance of landmarks like the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), under which you will float, and other such significant destinations along the way. In other instances, as when the well-informed art aficionado wants to take her time and spend the entire day perusing the Uffizi Gallery, then perhaps this is the time to go it alone. And, there is always the option of taking audio tours of the gallery. Walking tours in Florence Italy are also a very popular option for many tourists. Organized Florence tours that visit all of the most popular attractions within the historic city center, including the Pitti Palace, the Palazzo Vecchio, and the Florence Cathedral (to name a few) allow people the opportunity to get a nice survey glance of the city’s highlights.
