Hola a todos ! Soy Francesco y nací y crecí en Florencia. Puedo mostrarle lo que les gusta hacer a los lugareños y lugares que no son famosos pero hermosos como los otros lugares prestigiosos. Sugeriré la mejor manera de disfrutar la verdadera cultura florentina y su gente.
We have done many tours in Florence and this is the best one! Francesco shows you a calm and beautiful side of Florence. Most importantly, however, he establishes a super nice atmosphere and just is really knowledgable, friendly, and kind. With Francesco it’s almost that you book a friend, rather than a tour guide - highly recommended!!
Very friendly guy whom I spent a great afternoon with. Francesco took me to the countryside of Florence, revealing beautiful views and giving me many good adresses and information about the city walls! Loved the tour, would recommend 100%
Il tour è particolare e diverso dai soliti: si percorrono le mura di Firenze e si apprezza il tipico paesaggio collinare toscano, fuori dal caos del centro città. Francesco è un ragazzo simpaticissimo e molto gentile, e le sue spiegazioni sono fondamentali per dare il contesto storico a tutto ciò che è possibile ammirare durante la passeggiata. Ho apprezzato in particolare il lato umano di Francesco, che racconta scorci di vita vissuta in un luogo tanto magico e suggestivo.
Francesco’s tour of Florence’s Old Walls is remarkable! It showed me a unique side of Florence, as he explained centuries of change in the city’s cultural and economic development, as well as the rise and fall of its most prominent families in antiquity. We saw the city’s magnificent ancient gates and learned about the important role the walls played in protecting Florence from outside dangers. We also learned about the modern realities of life in Florence, including the difficulties that young Florentians face finding housing in a city that is so popular with tourists from around the world. I enjoyed trekking up the hill to Forte Belvedere to see the beautiful view overlooking the city from Boboli Garden. Lastly, I loved our delicious lunch at a restaurant that is a favourite of the locals. This tour showed me a new and different side of Florence, and was the perfect mix of fun and informative. It was also a respite from the heat and busyness of the city’s main core. I look forward to revisiting the Old Walls the next time I’m in Florence! Thank you Francseco, for the lovely tour and for your friendship!
Francesco was a fabulous guide. We had a great time, informative and fun. I highly recommend this tour !!!!
