      Private Renaissance History Tour of Florence

      Florence, Italy
      From (USD) $420 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known as a "docent" (from the Latin for teacher), this Ph.D. or M.A.-level scholar-guide will make the difference between seeing medieval Florence and understanding its history.
      • Your group, your tour: This experience is for your crew of up to 6 alone. Choose your departure time, set your own pace, and customize a walk that's in total step with your passions. Even tour length (typically about three hours) is flexible.
      • Orsanmichele: This church from the 1300s, once a grain market, played a central role in the town's commercial atmosphere, and had true world-class decorators. Each of the major guilds in town commissioned a saintly statue to dress up its exterior niches – and masters like Verrocchio, Ghiberti and Donatello, responded to the call.
      • Palazzo Davanzati: Step into a remarkably intact time capsule of domestic life among Florence's medieval nobility as you tour this restored family residence. See a kitchen stocked with period contraptions, bedrooms and salons decorated with chic frescoes and tapestries – even inside plumbing, with fresh water and toilets on each floor.
      • Social history: Stroll the narrow alleys of Florence's ancient city center. Perhaps stop in to admire a church's carved altarpiece, or fascinating Santa Maria Novella with its 800-year-old pharmacy. Learn how the art, architecture, furnishings, and consumer goods of the times formed the fabric of 15th-century life – and live on today.
