Very nice tour with great tour guide, Catherine. Interesting stories on the Medici family, Michelangelo, etc. The last stop was a charming restaurant for a glass of wine. Nice!

We greatly enjoyed our family's private tour of the Uffizi with tour guide Catherine. We learned so much as we toured the museum. I highly recommend this tour. I came away having learned so much about art. Thanks for a great tour!

This one-hour tour was an easy, educational way to skip the long line to see David, learn something new and then just spend some time with this amazing sculpture. Not to be missed if you are visiting Florence. Thank you Artviva!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
