Join this tour for small groups and explore the city with a professional guide.

Looking for things to do in Florence? Explore the most important sights and treasures of this fantastic city on our Florence in a Day tour! Ideally suited for couples or small groups, this outing includes a tour of the city and its sights with an official guide.

What does ‘shared’ mean?

Your party will not have a dedicated private guide but you’ll share a guide with others.
This means that when you reach some of the attractions, you’ll join a group of other visitors. These may not have booked with us but don’t worry, your spot is reserved and you don’t have to wait in line. You’ll only have to either show the voucher or tell the ticket desk your name. The group you’ll join can be up to 20 people but not larger than that.
