Florence Guides has specially designed a series of tours to meet the specific needs of young children. Furthermore the tours are only conducted by guides who are experienced in and passionate about helping young children discover the fascination of Florence. Fortunately for accompanying adults, they will find the tours interesting too since they cover all the places and monuments of the usual tours but with a special emphasis on aspects of interest for younger people.
“We are a small highly-selected group of passionate art experts, all natives of Florence and licensed tour guides eager to share our knowledge with you.“

Trying to find something specifically targetted at children in Florence I thought would be difficult. Our seven year old son who has a great attention span one on one / in small groups would probably not enjoy the larger tours that are targetted at adults and teenagers. We booked a private tour through Florence Guides for for the three of us. Our guide Alessandra was outstanding, continually engaging with our son, was flexible to meet our needs and captured his imagination so well that he went back to school telling sories of Michelangelo, the David and The Birth of Venus. I can recommend they very highly for being responsive on very short notice – 48 hours, providing an outstanding guide (well-informed) with perfect english, tailoring the tour to our needs and most importantly keeping both our son and us engaged throughout the three hours.
