History and mission

Welcome to FlorencePass, a tour operator based in Florence, Tuscany.

We created our small company to offer highly specialized and truly exclusive Florence Walking & Museum Guided Tours.

Our model of sustainable tourism allows our guests to discover the Florentine urban fabric in a dynamic way, learning also something about the Renaissance mentality.

Our experienced, fluently English speaking and native Tuscan tour guides lead small groups through our beautiful city and its gorgeous countryside.

We have designed walking and museum tours among the most interesting spots of Florence, thanks to our 30 years' experience working directly with tourists from all over the world.

Our flagship is our Exclusive Vasari Corridor Tour, a guided visit to the Renaissance elevated enclosed passageway which connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti.

We organize also private customized Florence tours for solo travelers, couples, families, and groups with English, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish speaking guides.

With our tours, you will explore our amazing churches, museums, streets, squares, and bridges, and you will experience Florence as a Florentine.

Let us show you Florence!

 

MAURIZIO

Maurizio is in contact with tourists from all over the world since 1982 as official tour guide of Florence, Pisa and Siena. In 2010 he founded FlorencePass, a small family-run agency, to propose innovative tours to discover the beautiful city of Florence and other cities in Tuscany. He is passionate about art, architecture and photography, and is constantly looking for information on the history of his city, Florence, where he lives and has been living since his childhood.

Taking inspiration from the famous quotation from the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe - Less is More - Maurizio has crafted his own motto as "More (Quality) for Less (Money)" in proposing his original tours through Florence.
