Our family of three had a tour booked with Freya's Florence Tours. Our stay coincided with Florence's marathon but we were too excited to worry about how that may affect our time here. Sara arrived at our hotel early and ready to brave the crowds while determined not to let the barricades hinder our itinerary. Not only is Sara incredibly... More

We set this tour up from the US, before arriving in Florence, and the arranging of the tour was very simple and smooth. The 4 of us met our private guide at the Uffizi gallery, at the arranged time. Our guide was Helen, an art histian and artist, who gave us an excellent tour of about 2 hours and 45... More

My husband and I travelled to Italy back in September and I booked two tours with Freya's Florence Tours a month in advance. The company was very easy to communicate with via email. They answered all my questions to help me choose the best tours for the 4 days that we were in Florence especially since we wanted to see... More

We were only in Florence for 1 day as a family with 3 boys aged 15,12,10. We picked the 3 hour family tour of Florence and had a wonderful guide called Anne. Her English was fantastic and she really engaged with the boys, talked about films that were made in Florence, showed us some of the venues, even from the... More

An unreserved "full marks". The company employs people with an in-depth knowledge of the city and a true passion for their subject. Excellent value for money.

We helped to arrange an Italy trip for my parents and their friends and discovered Freya's Florence through TA. While it did take a while to confirm the itineraries, we eventually locked down 2 tours for them, an introduction to Florence and a tour of the Uffizzi. The Florence tour with Joanna was thoroughly enjoyed by my parents and their... More

We booked two tours about 5 weeks in advance of our trip. Communication was prompt and simple. Upon arriving in Florence, Freya, herself, led the Michelangelo Might tour. Her passion and mastery of the Renaissance period is impeccable and her presentation is outstanding. She even went 35 minutes past our end time because she genuinely loves doing this and simply...

The 3 hr tour was incredibly informative and gave context to the Renaissance history in both Florence and the country. Nicholas conveyed his vast knowledge in an interesting and captivating way. Even though part of the tour was under umbrellas, we didn't want to rush anything to be finished. The stories behind the cathedrals, artwork, and the people who made... More

Our guide Anne Sophie met us at Florence train station when we arrived from Venice. History and sightseeing began within 100 yards. We have been several times and wished to see the "unseen sights". Wow, did we ever! Soon discovered our real love of shopping for items of local artistry and she showed us the south side of Florence with... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
