Florence Sightseeing: Best Florence Tours, Duomo, Uffizi, and David Tours, and Day Trips from Florence

I’ve found tours to be a great way to explore a city—as long as the guide is knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate. The Tour Guy guides are all of the above. As a history professor with almost two decades of teaching experience, I know the deepest level of learning occurs when the person conveying the message is enthusiastic and impassioned. Every Tour Guy guide I’ve roamed with has shown a true love for their city’s sites that made sightseeing memorable, fun, and educational. Plus, it’s just cool to spend time with a local!

Florence is a magical city of art and culture! It is the place that I hope to call home one day. One can walk the streets that daVinci, Michelangelo, and other great artists once strolled. The food is the best in the world…in my humble opinion. And the gelato? The gelato makes one happy to be at the top of the food chain. A tour guide can help Florence (Firenze) come alive for you and help you skip the lines at the Uffizi and other attractions, spot treasures around the city, and have the best culinary and cultural experiences. The following are some of the best Florence tours—they give you easy access to Uffizi tickets, the ability to waltz right in (skip the line access), and much more to make your Florence trip stellar. Check them out!

These Florence tours are some of my favorites because I love a small group tour—meeting people on vacation is a favorite pastime of my husband and I. The Tour Guy also offers private tours of many of these options with additional private tours for day trips from Florence to Siena, wine country, San Gimignano, Orvieto, and other areas. You can also take a helicopter tour and have other adventures. If you’re interested in a private tour, let me know and I’ll get you a link for one of them. There is a base price plus ticket prices for each person, but you will have a special, individualized tour.

Any of these tours will give you a special Florence vacation, so I hope you enjoy them. Buon viaggio!
