Florence Private Tours and Florence Small Group Tours

Florence 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 this iconic city on our Florence private tours and our Florence small group tours with Context.

Patricizia was amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly and engaging. She really included our 13-year-old daughter in the tour and stayed with us much longer than the agreed-upon hours. We learned so much and had fun. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Great intro to Florence, the only thing to improve would be on our part…having more time. I really did not initially realize how far from port Florence was. In terms of the ride there, apparently passengers arriving in la spezia must take a shuttle to the main port terminal to meet guides. It is not at the dock where the boat let’s you out.
Alessandra held us spellbound with her intimate and engaging narrative of the major artwork in the Ufizzi and David in Accademia. She gave us information on visiting Florence further, extended help and support during an especially warm and humid day for us. She displayed passion for her role as a guide and made us want to come back. I was impressed with her conversations and even more as docent-guide for Florence.
