Private and Small Group Guided Tours

The streets of Florence—epicenter of Renaissance art and culture—are living history for scholars and art lovers alike.
Charming and historic, Florence offers a rare opportunity to step back in time. Its 15th- and 16th-century monuments, buildings, and churches—including, most famously, the Duomo—and its many artworks, such as Michelangelo's Statue of David, highlight why this small Italian city is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. Under the Medici family, who ruled during this era, the worlds of art, architecture, science, and humanism flourished, and the remnants of this explosively creative time are still visible today. Florence has also retained its other traditions—crafts and food—with current Florentine leatherworkers, silversmiths, shoemakers, and milliners producing artisanal goods, and cafes, markets, and restaurants preparing the city's celebrated cuisine. Explore iconic Florence with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Once again, Siro proved to be invaluable in providing us with an introduction to a must-see visit in Florence. The Uffizi Gallery is imposing. We would have been completely lost and frustrated without Siro's expertise in providing an introduction to this famous institution. He is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent tour guide.
Siro was a fabulous tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided us with suggestions on where else we should visit in Florence based on the Michelangelo tour.
Martino and our entire tour were amazing! We really enjoyed the introduction to Florence that Martino provided. He was clearly very knowledgeable about many aspects of Florence, past and present. He was able to answer the million questions thrown at him during the tour. He even recommended several restaurants to us, one of which we were able to visit and it was TERRIFIC! This was our first Context tour, but not our last!
