Can we reserve a local guide directly on site on the day?
Unfortunately, no! If you’d like to add this optional service you must book it at the time of reservation, or at least a few days in advance.

 

 

I’d like to visit the Accademia Museum or the Uffizi Gallery, do I need to pre-purchase the entrance fees?
Absolutely yes! First, because it is the only way to be sure about the availability and secondly, being timed entrance fees you can arrange your day to maximize your short time ashore.

 

 

Can you prepurchase the timed entrance fees for us?
Yes, we can! This is not our main business but we offer this service to our clients through our partners.

If you prefer, you can buy the tickets on your own for the Accademia Museum and Uffizi Gallery. Please pay attention to the time you choose and be sure it is feasible with the tour schedule. For any doubt simply ask us.

 

 

May I visit both attractions (Accademia Museum and the Uffizi Gallery) in Florence?
Normally and especially for the first-time visitors, due to the short time ashore, we highly recommend choosing one of the 2 attractions, so you can use the balance of the time to see other highlights of Florence.

However, just to help you plan your day, from our experience people spend 45 mins/1 hour at Accademia Museum where the main attraction is the David by Michelangelo, and at least 2/3 hours at Uffizi Gallery.

 

Is the private tour of Florence accessible for people with disability?
Yes, it is! We can accommodate people with reduced mobility and foldable wheelchair/scooters users. Please note: it is mandatory to specify each specific need at the time of booking and in case of wheelchair/scooters, the exact dimensions to be sure they can fit in the trunk of the vehicle.

 

How much walking is involved in the private tour of Florence?
It is totally up to you. Our vehicles have special permits/licenses to circulate almost everywhere (pedestrian areas included).
For people with walking difficulties, we can drop you off right in front of the main attractions.

Obviously, the best way to enjoy the visit of the historic city centers is by walking. Being a private service you are free to decide your own pace, with no rush.

 

 

Are the entrance fees included in the price?
The price does not include any entrance fee. If you are interested, the driver can give you all the info to buy the admission tickets on-site.
Keep in mind that normally in Italy, it is mandatory to have shoulders and knees covered to enter religious sites.
