Taking a private tour is the way to go! We saw everything we wanted to see and our guide really catered us--pace, what we saw, etc. Rosa was wonderful! She felt more like a friend and did a great job of explaining things to my 15 year old son. She is passionate about Florence and the museums and that just kept the momentum going and the excitement up! I highly recommend this tour!

Such a great experience! The other members of the tour didn’t show, so I was lucky enough to unintentionally get a private tour. My guide was so kind, knowledgeable and tailored the experience to meet my interests. It was one of the highlights of my trip for sure.

Really easy to use, just go to the ticket office 15 mins before our timed entry slot and they gave me the real ticket to get in.

Maria was a very knowledgeable and personable guide! We enjoyed her leading us through the academia!

We arrived early and got straight in Gallery excellent if can't make Uffizi .
