Weather: The gondola cannot run in bad weather. You will be refunded for that tour if not running due to weather conditions. However, this is usually decided at the start of the tour time. To ensure you don't miss out, please contact us in on the morning of the tour, or be at the meeting point just in case.

Please note:
Knees and shoulders must be covered for church entry. Please do not bring any backpacks, as they are not allowed in the Basilica or Doge's Palace. Each tour ends where the next tour begins, meaning you only have to find one meeting point! All ticket/reservation fees for museums are included in the tour package price. The four Venice tours in this package can also be done over one day, two days, or more. Please refer to individual Venice tours and transfer details by clicking at the links above.

* In order to book the complimentary return transfer to the island of Murano, please write into the Notes section of your booking your preferred day and time that you would like the free return transfer, along with your hotel name and Venice contact details. A representative from the Murano glass factory will contact you directly to make the arrangements with you. This is not a guided tour. Please email staff@artviva.com for more information.

excellent

Kane was an excellent guide with a good sense of humor. He is very competent, enthusiastic, and a great story teller. I learnt a great deal from him about the city of Florence. He really made my short stay in Florence that much more enjoyable. Thank you Kane!

excellent

Kane was a fabulous guide! He had an extensive knowledge of relevant historical fact and made the history of Florence come alive. It really helped having a native English speaking guide as we found other guides who had English as their second language were often difficult to understand. Thank you Kane!

EXCELLENT VENICE TOURS

The 4 Venice tours, Venice in one Glorious Day, are outstanding. We did 2 on Mon 5/12 and 2 on Wed 5/14. Jen was our fantastic guide for 2 of them. I don't remember the names of the other 2 Italian ladies, but they were also excellent & easy to understand.

Venice in one glorious day!!!! Having heard from a friend that a visit to Venice could be a challenge as far as visiting the highlights is concerned, we decided to scour the internet for a suitable guided tour. Skipping the line was imperitive for us. Two ladies with 3 adolescent sons,a challenge in itself. We chose to "do" Venice in one day so that we could be free to return to places of interest with enough knowledge to recognise and be sure of not missing the most important sights. Skipping the line to enter the San Marco Basilica was absolutely a highlight. Thousands of visitors stood in the pouring rain in order to get a glimpse of this magnificent masterpiece. Our guide Christina was absolutely professional and was able to keep our teenage sons more than interested. It was also very much appreciated by us that Art Viva gave us a call the day previous to our tour that bad weather was expected and offered us to postpone the gondola trip.

I'd like to thank Angelos for giving us a fantastic evening tour 16th April. His local knowledge brought Florence alive and made our stay much more enjoyable. Thanks for the tips about places to go - we loved the Opera!

Simply Wonderful!

Touring the Uffizi Gallery with Klaus was the highlight of our trip to Florence; his passion and knowledge provided for an unforgettable afternoon. Booking a tour with ArtViva is highly recommended!

Awesome and highly recommended!

I used the Art Viva services while in Florence for two tours, The Uffizi Gallery and the Academia Gallery. Because I went in a low season I was the only client and the company still went through with the service, thank you! I had the best tour guild that I could ever hope for! Her name was Elizabeth. She was knowledgeable, fun to be with, very well informed and broke down the pieces and art history in a way that was artful in and of itself. I give the tour service and specifically Elizabeth a 100% A+ and recommend this group all the way. I had a great experience, thank you so much!!

Great tour, Stefan was the best

If you are going to Florence this tour is a must, Volterra is amazing "town in the clouds", and without all the tourists. Stefan made the tour absolutely fantastic and it was the highlight of our holidays.

Inspiring and Fun!

We did the Florence in One Glorious Day. Worth every moment. Klaus entertained, inspired and excited us with his knowledge, delivery and communication. He gave us 'big picture' history and 'little picture' stories, putting humanity into the architecture. Just excellent. Liz helped us enjoy the Uffizi and Accademia with her art knowledge and insight. Both great tour guides. Next time, we'll be back!
