Highlights (Bullets)

  • Visit the Academy of Fine Arts with Michelangelo’s original David (the Academy is replaced with the Duomo Museum on Mondays and on the first Sunday of each month)

Short Description

One of Florence’s most notable citizens, Dante Alighieri, was exiled from the city in the 1300s. Unlike Dante, you’ll be welcomed to Florence with open arms! Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted by your one-of-a-kind Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, help arrange your activities, offer suggestions, and ensure your Florence trip runs smoothly. Florence has so much to offer—historical landmarks, world-class museums, spectacular cuisine and wine, an abundance of works of art, and much more—that we know it can be overwhelming. That's why we've arranged the services of a Local Host to assist you. Plus, on this Florence trip, we’ve also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing.

Your Italy trip begins when you arrive in Florence. Your Local Host will greet you with a friendly smile and a set of materials to help familiarize you with the city. You can begin exploring immediately and the next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing of the must-see attractions. We’ll take you to the Academy of Fine Arts to see Michelangelo's David. You’ll hear inside stories as we take you for a walk through the city center to see Cathedral Square; sculpture-studded Piazza della Signoria, the center of the city's political life since the 14th century; and Santa Croce Square. And never fear… your inside visit includes VIP access, which means you get to skip the line! After all, why waste time waiting in line like all the other tourists when you can be up close and personal with the treasures inside the Academy of Fine Arts?

You’ll also have time to explore on your own. You may want to take a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world’s most famous art museums with works by da Vinci, Botticelli, and Michelangelo. Perhaps shop at the famous designer houses or browse the shops on the medieval Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant br idge that has housed stores since the 13th century. You may decide to take an excursion to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower; explore the secret passages of Palazzo Vecchio, constructed in 1299; or take a walking tour to visit some of the sights featured in Dan Brown's book Inferno. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions and can help arrange the activities you desire while vacationing in Florence. Florence is a city with a deep history and artistic heritage. It offers everything from mouth-watering cuisine to exciting museums and beautiful churches. We want to make it easy for you to travel here, which is why we've arranged your hotel reservations, guides, sightseeing, and breakfast. All you have to do is grab your camera and get ready for an exciting adventure. Add the comfort of knowing you'll have someone there throughout your stay, and you've got the perfect Florence vacation!

Monograms is the best way to explore London. They make it easy and delightful. You are in charge of your activities, but their presence is always available, should you need it. Second time for me with them in London, and service remains top notch.

What a wonderful time! Even though I have to use a walker, with poor balance, and even though several told me I should not even consider travel--Monograms made it more than possible! Great staff who goes above and beyond the call. Wonderful local guides and helpful people.

The trip has been amazing. Well organized. The only issue was the Metropole hotel. They are just not ready for prime time. While they tried to show they cared/understood ... ultimately they should never have put us in the room they did. As well, the front desk managers can demonstrate a range of concern/care/interest to indifference/to a bit testy. On the other hand, the Glance is brilliant.

Overall, we had a very good experience with Monograms. The transfers between cities was the most helpful. The arranged tours were well done. However, there doesn't seem to be any consistency with the Monograms hosts from city to city. Their hours of availability differ vastly from one city to the next. All were friendly and helpful though.
