Welcome to Florence!

A city orientation walk with food tastings.

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is a city whose history has paved the way for massive intellectual, artistic, and spiritual change.

From its stunning bridges that cross the Arno River, to the gorgeous cathedrals, and of course its romantic ambiance, Florence provides travellers with an intimate setting to learn, taste, and feel. The Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery are home to masterful works of art by Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo.

Join our expert guide through the magical streets of Florence to see the major sites, understand the rich history, and feel the vibrant artisan culture that still runs strong throughout this beautiful city.
