Great Ufizzi Tour

The tour guide spoke English well and was very informative. We had a small tour group which also helped make this a great tour.

Guide was very interesting and provided good insight into history and politics of Florence. Tons of tourist around so expect waits to see things and understand that you won't get into the Duomo on the afternoon tour.

We really enjoyed this day. It was very relaxed with lots of time to explore enchanting villages by the sea. It was perhaps a bit ambitious to try for four villages, our final visit was a bit rushed. This is a gorgeous part of the world and the tour was a wonderful introduction to it. Our guide was excellent and... More

We did the walking Florence tour and Unfortunately I have to say it was a big disappointment! Our tour guide was knowledgeable but did not show any excitement or enthusiasm and we didn't learn anything that couldn't be read in a book! When the guide says leave a 5 * review or nothing it doesn't reflect well on the quality... More

We had a tour of the Academia in the morning and the Uffizi gallery in the afternoon with City Wonders. Both tour guides were fantastic - very knowledgeable, easy to understand, and had such pride in their beautiful city.

Really good value and a beautiful day out. Tour guide was excellent and getting an opportunity to swim and sit by the beach for a few hours is welcome after hours in the city museums and galleries.

Great tour with our guide stefano. Extremely knowledgeable friendly and professional. The tour avoided the usual popular tourist spots and took us to little unknown areas and stefano taught us all about Florence history. Fantastic tour

Brilliant! There is so much to see and appreciate when you have a short time in such a wonderful city. It was wonderful being walked through the streets of Florence and learning about it's history through a knowlegable and passionate tour guide - the best way to get the info and enjoy the sights all at once :)

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
