Our guide Marie was great and very kind. She shared her passion for Florence and history and was able to give us advice for the climb to the dome. Allow 2 hours for a guided tour plus an hour for the climb to the dome, see the magnificent paintings and admire the 360 degree view of Florence.

Fantastic tour! Well worth the money for the experience. I’m a person who usually likes to do things by myself but I am SO glad I did the tour. You learn so much you just couldn’t on your own—from history to practical tips. Selvia our guide was amazing! She went above & beyond. After the tour, she helped me with a personal problem like a friend, taking me to a local pharmacy. This is the tour you want! Ask for Selvia!!!

tour in French. The guide Marie adapted the order of the visits according to the time of the climb to the dome. Her comments were relevant and she insisted on the essential points, eg in the visit to the museum. We were a group of 6. At the end she gave us lots of other tips about Florence
