any other tour company
ArtViva was the first tour operator in Italy to do high-quality small-group tours. Our mission is the same as it was in 1996 when we began as a small, local company: to provide first-rate tours and experiences all over Italy, guaranteeing that your stay is truly remarkable. Discover why Italy has the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as our tours take you to Florence, Tuscany, the Cinque Terre, Venice, Milan, Rome, Vatican City, Sicily, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, and beyond. Fully-licensed and based exclusively in Florence, Italy, we are the most recommended tour agency in Italy, with recommendations from major travel guides like Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, and The New York Times, plus features on BBC World News, Discovery Channel, and the History Channel. We work entirely with passionate locals and experts – including aristocrats, authors, actors, artists, and artisans. We are committed to providing outstanding customer service and concierge services; please contact us directly if you have any questions about your travel to Italy or your upcoming tours with us, or if you are interested in organizing special anniversary events or corporate entertainment retreats or holiday parties in Italy.
We look forward to welcoming you to Italy.

Walking Tours of Florence are wise and well informed. They have a fresh accessible style which makes it fun. The recipe seems to be the more you enjoy the more you learn. And it works.
The Greatest Tour Guide Ever!
...This tour is wonderful, it is informative, complete and fun. And more importantly, you don't feel like a sheep in a flock, herded around town...
Thank You for the Wonderful Experience
Walking Tours of Florence are much more than tours, because you leave feeling almost as if you know Michelangelo and the other Masters personally.
