Since the great success of the “Culture's week” in 2013, Florence
and Italy opened the gates to the arts and history the first
Sunday of the month, giving to all the citizens and tourists, the

You can get the opportunity to book private guided visits with my organization, in order to get an unforgettable experience by visiting arts-sites with a fully skilled tourist guide. The first Sunday of the month is not possible to make a reservation for your museums' inside visit, because there's no tickets to pay and the booking service is not working.
