“like being in your own personal TV documentary”
Chris Dobson organizes bespoke private tours in Italy for small groups, immersing you in the local art and history, to give you a truly authentic flavour of the different regions of this beautiful country: he specializes in Florence and Tuscany, but we also arrange tours in other regions, on request. Chris is a professional art historian with over 30 years’ experience, but more than that, he is also an artist with personal working experience of how artworks were actually created, and he uses this unique blend of skills to explain the techniques used by the great artists. He enjoys sharing his passion for Italy as a rich mixture of art, arms and culture. He speaks Italian fluently.
These tours are given in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and are designed just for you. They make art and history engaging and exciting for all, without in any way ‘dumbing-down’ the subject. Chris Dobson believes that art history should be easily accessible to everyone, and from children, through adults with general interest, degree students, and museum professionals, his tours will enrich your experience of Italy.
Please note: due to the bespoke nature of our tours, we are unable to accept bookings at very short notice: we need to have all details of your booking confirmed at least 45 days in advance of your tour date(s).
