Florence Private Tours

It's not easy, for a tour guide either, to describe in a few lines the charm of this city that each year attracts millions of visitors from all over the world. Florence is known for its architectural and artistic treasures: Ponte Vecchio and Brunelleschi's Dome, the Uffizi Gallery and Michelangelo's David, just to mention some examples. But in addition to the universally known symbols that define the identity of this tourist destination there is really much more to discover:

About Me

My name is Duccio Tiracorrendo, I am an archaeologist and a qualified tour private guide of Florence and its Province.

After the classical high school I spent five years at the University of Pisa, where I graduated in Classical Archaeology in 2006.

Wow! Duccio’s tour is phenomenal. We’ve taken a couple tours in Florence and we learned the most by far in this tour. Duccio is incredibly educated, well spoken, and knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Florence. He’s the best tour guide I’ve ever experienced with his calm ability to recount specific dates, minute details, and countless historical references.


Really informative and well-structured walking tour that hits a lot of high-interest and historical sights within a relatively small (and so, highly walkable) area of the city. We booked this tour as a private group that included my older parents, whose mobility can be a bit limited a times, and Duccio's pacing was perfect: we all learned so much, but without the tour leaving us too tired to keep exploring on our own afterwards!


This was the first tour we did in Florence and was the absolute best way to start our trip! Incredibly interesting and informative. Beautiful arch of the story and history of the city starting with the romans in piazza Della Republica and ending with the war bombing of the bridges on the Arno. Duccio was great!


He was very responsive and I'm glad to have gone on the tour with him. We went for about 2 hours and 15 minutes! I thoroughly enjoyed him as a tour guide, he is extremely knowledgable and is well studied. He is full of facts that goes beyond Florence. If you enjoy history and human geography, I would highly recommend booking with Duccio. Florence is more than historical sites given how rich the culture is and for its institutional background. Thank you again for the great tour!


Duccio was a great guide. It was a pleasure meeting him and showing me around Florence. I appreciated his passion for Florence and all of fun facts about the city that I didn’t know about. His walking tour would be great for first time visitors to Florence as well as people who have been to the city before. 10/10 would recommend and would do another tour with Duccio again. Grazie mille Duccio!


Duccio gave a tour that was a fantastic combination -- history (which was very helpful for context), architecture and art, and some memorable anecdotes. (For example, did you know the reason there's an unfinished stone ring under the Duomo dome? I do now!) Great tour!

He gave us a tour on academia gallery. He was very patinante about what he was telling us and a real story teller. Enjoyed the tour and will definitely use this guide again!


Duccio led our 1/2 day tour of the Accademia and highlights of Florence. We found him very knowledgeable. He never lacked for commentary and never consulted any notes. We will use him again and will recommend him to anyone who asks.


I visited Florence this summer with my extended family and was looking for a competent guide. I was lucky enough to find Duccio. He organized for us a spectacular 3-days visit. He took care of our reservations and did not require advance payment. We hired him for three hours a day but he did not mind to show us around other sites when the time was over. He gave us time to take pictures but, honestly, we were so captured by all that he had to say, that we took very few breaks. When I saw his curriculum on the web I expected a good service but his knowledge exceeded my expectations by far. He is very organized, efficient and friendly. Let him know about your background/knowledge of history and he will adjust his explanations so that you don't miss anything. We could not be happier. I'd say: look no further, you have just found one of the best guides in Florence!

My friend and I arrived at the Uffizi Gallery and were offered a tour which we accepted, and we could not have been more fortunate to have Duccio. Duccio is incredibly well versed and knowledgeable about all aspects of the gallery. His English was great (even if he doesn't think so). I would highly recommend booking with Duccio if you plan to visit the gallery, you will not be disappointed.

We are in Florence and on Thursday had a very informative and educational tour of the Accademia Galley where the famous Statue of David resides. The tour company is called Guide Florence Tour and the guide was Duccio Tiracorrendo who was extremely knowledgable, polite and patient. I'd highly recommend Duccio. Cheers Fons (Australia)

Duccio was a wonderful guide! He was very knowledgeable and pleasantly answered all our questions. I would highly recommend this nice gentleman.


Thanks Duccio for an interesting excursion
