Whether you’re visiting the Uffizi Gallery for your first visit, or if you wish to learn more in depth about a Florentine theme like Michelangelo, or The Medici, Context Travel is the company for you.
Context offers small group tours of Florence and other cities, with never more than 6 people, led by “docents” who have either a MA or PhD in the relevant field. Their “seminars” tend to be at the undergraduate level, though their docents of course adjust the walk based on your interests. While these tours cost rather more than the average
I take their tours wherever I go, and I always learn something. Here are my reports of some Context seminars that I’ve done in the past:
- The young Michelangelo in Florence
- Artisans in Florence near the Duomo
- Palace architecture in Rome
- Caravaggio in Naples
- The town of Cantebury
