Artviva is pleased to announce a new series of Kids Tours throughout the school year. Children ages 8-12 explore and learn more about Florence while searching for its historical, cultural, and artistic "treasures". All tours will be conducted in English as educational and fun activities for the children of the English-speaking community. This is also a great opportunity for children currently studying English to utilize their classroom learning and gain more exposure to conversational English.

Tours will be held twice a month on Saturday afternoons for two hours from 15:00 to 17:00. There will be a total of 10 tours and two special events (currently planned as a Christmas baking course and Traditional Craft course on Paper Marbling). The first tour, the Florence for Kids Treasure Hunt, will be offered on October 20 FREE OF CHARGE (reservations in advance are necessary) Subsequent tours will cost 18 Euros plus the cost of museum tickets (if needed). You can subscribe to all nine tours at a discount, for a total of 144 Euros, plus museum tickets. The two special events will be priced separately.

Each tour is limited to a maximum of 15 participants, so advance booking is strongly advised.
