Originally constructed as a dedication to Saint Martino, your guide will explain the mysteries surrounding its construction and architecture. Enjoy a guided tour of the Duomo with your guide.

We had a wonderful day trip from Florence to San Gimignano, Pisa, and Lucca with our tour guides, Alice and driver Maximo. They were very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They told us interesting facts and stories about the places we visited, and the history and culture of Florence and Tuscany. They also gave us enough time to explore and enjoy each destination. The drive was smooth and comfortable, and the scenery was beautiful. It rained but it was amazing. We saw the stunning medieval towers, the iconic leaning tower, and the charming walled city. Each place had its own charm. Alice was very attentive, responsive and flexible. They communicated with us via WhatsApp before and made sure we had everything we needed. They also gave us some great tips and recommendations for Florence. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some of the most beautiful and historic places in Tuscany. Thank you, Alice and Maximo, for making our trip unforgettable

What an incredible day!! I'm not a morning person so I was slightly nervous to get up so early for this, but wow it was so worth it. The sun rising over the Tuscan hills was breathtaking and then on top of that we managed to see 4 other places in Tuscany - San Gimignano, Lucca, and Pisa. Because we got there so early, we actually managed to beat the crowds which I hadn't even thought about. Just a great overall experience - no complaints! Everything was organized and on time! Perfect day! Thanks Tourist Italy.

Our tour guide Federico was a pleasure. Tour was on time, comfortable, and full of facts. Wish we had a little more time in Pisa, otherwise the tour, skip the link tickets, information, timeliness, and communication from Federico was just perfect. Lucca was a bonus and well worth the visit. Bravissimo !

Kiko and George went above and beyond. Was so happy to see Kiko was our tour guide. Gad read reviews naming him as extra special and he certainly left nothing to be desired. Very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. Always taking care of the group. Fine job indeed.

It was a nice and relax tour, our driver Alejandro was very accommodating and pleasant!!!
