Florence - guided tours of the 'art museums' from tickitaly.com

See further down this page for details on options for a personal, private guided tour of Florence's art treasure-troves, but please also note that we offer some fixed-price, pre-arranged tours that are extremely popular. The first of these is the three hour long 'Morning tour of Florence' that includes a trip up to Piazzale Michelangelo for some splendid views across the city, followed by a guided tour of the heart of Florence, the cathedral area, and then on to a no-need-to-queue accompanied visit for a tour of Michelangelo's David at the Accademia Gallery. We also offer a variant of this same morning tour that is followed up by a lunch in a traditional local restaurant - click here for information on this Florence tour with lunch included.

Next comes the three and a half hour 'Afternoon tour of Florence' which starts with a trip up to the Etruscan hilltop town of Fiesole, followed by a tour around the areas of Santa Croce and the Palazzo Vecchio, and finishes with a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery. The tour finishes in the gallery itself, but you're free to carry on exploring afterwards.

Should both the morning and afternoon tours sound tempting, then simple - buy a combined Florence tour ticket and enjoy them both, at a reduced cost.

tickitaly.com are also able to set you up with a personal guided tour of the art museums of Florence, further enhancing your pleasure and understanding of the treasure troves on offer.
