FAQ About the Florence Tour for Kids
My children are in their early to mid-teens. Is this walk appropriate for them? Our family tours are primarily designed for children under the age of 13, and this one, in particular, is ideal for young kids. For teens we would recommend our private adult Introduction To Florence: With Accademia And Michelangelo's David tour, the content can be adapted to an age-appropriate level.
Will this tour be engaging for parents as well? Our guide will be able to answer the client’s questions but the overall focus will be geared toward children.
Do we go inside the Duomo or just see it from the outside? All venues are seen from the exterior only on this tour.

Valerie received her BA with distinction in Art History and Museology at the University of Florence, focusing on the Renaissance art market. Although German, Valerie was born and raised in Rome, making her eager to build bridges across different cultures. She also works for the educational department of the state museums in Florence, where her mission is to communicate art and culture as a means of understanding the visual signs that surround us.
Molly holds an MA in Italian literature from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she completed her PhD coursework and exams with a specialization in Renaissance and Early Modern periods. She spent a year in Venice as an undergraduate while at the University of California-Santa Cruz and afterwards worked in Siena for two years for the University of California Education Abroad Program.
