Welcome on Florencewithguide
Welcome to our website. Our names are Angela and Caterina and we are licensed tour guides specialised in Florence and Tuscany tours. These tours are private, fully customisable and available in English, Italian, Russian, Spanish and German.
Your holiday time is precious and our more than 20 years of experience in the world of private tours can certainly help you make the most out of it. We will find the most suitable tour for you, whether you are a Florence aficionado or a first-time visitor, a culture vulture or a rookie, a fashion lover or a history enthusiast, a family or a group of friends, a couple that wishes to share special moments, or a business visitor who wants to see more than just meeting rooms.
Throughout the years we have guided thousands of visitors from all over the world to experience Florence and this has taught us how to find the best solution for each tourist. The variety of tours that we have devised can be used as a foundation to design the perfect one for you, avoiding ready-made-packages in favour of a personalised experience.
In addition to enabling you to experience the art and history of Florence, we have plenty of advice for foodies, fashion lovers and gelato fans.
The advice we give you is the same as that which we give to family and friends and is based on our experience as locals, or the opinion of trusted colleagues. We place authenticity, professionalism and our clients’ interests above everything else. This means that we are completely independent and are NOT sponsored by any of the restaurants, boutiques, shops or businesses that we might recommend.
OUR BEST TOURS
Discover Florence and Tuscany
Our guided tour will introduce you to all the must-see sights in town in search of the thread that links squares, churches and monuments to the destiny of the city. Avoiding tedious lists of dates and names, we will focus on the history and the anecdotes that bring the city and its architecture to life.
Experience the absolute masterpieces of the period: Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo. Leaving aside superfluous lists of dates and names, we will provide you with the keys to enter the compelling and profound world of Renaissance art. Visit the Uffizi Gallery with an expert guide: do not waste your time: it is precious.
Our guided tour will give you the keys to enter Michelangelo’s world. Out of the 30 sculptures that he created during his lifetime, 21 have their home here, including his undisputed masterpiece, the David. This is why there is no other place like Florence to understand his driven and tormented art.
