He is so passionate about his work and it really shows. This tour is superb and perfect for those that are time crunched. Do... More

We did the all day tour with Costanza seeing the Duomo, Accademia and the Uffizi Gallery. This was a wonderful tour. Costanza was very nice, informative and professional--full of facts. I don't know how she could remember them all! The tour ends in the Uffizi gallery where you could continue to look around on your own. We have done several... More

Paulo was a terrific tour guide who made our tour both interesting and fun. He had a wealth of knowledge and a passion for his city that he graciously shared with us. This was one of our favorite things we did in Italy.

The tour was a great way to get a glimpse of Florence in a day. Our tour guide Angelo was so animated and passionate about what he was talking about. He seemed very knowledgeable about all of the art he talked about – he sounded like a passionate Art History professor, it was great!

Our group of 12 started in San Marco's Square, then walked to Galleria deli' Academia to learned all there is to know about Michaelangelo's "David" and other amazing works of art. We continued on to the Duomo, viewing the... More

We had a party of 6 they had 2 vans on this trip each seating 7. Like a private tour for us. Stops in each town were brief but informative guide did a good job. Lunch was also very good, with a starter of dried meats and bruschetta, choice of a couple of different pastas( they were all pretty good).... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
