Florencia es uno de los destinos turísticos más importantes de Europa y puede ser muy difícil visitarlo sin un guía local que lo ayude a encontrar su camino hasta allí. El equipo de Free Tour Florence apoya la idea del turismo sostenible y queremos presentarte las partes menos conocidas de la ciudad, para contarte algo que nunca encontrarás en los libros de viajes comunes. Nuestro propósito es mostrarte esta increíble ciudad a través de los ojos de un gran conocedor y ayudarlo a vivirla como lo hace un local. Entonces, ¿por qué no vamos a la Piazza del Duomo o al Ponte Vecchio? Porque queremos mostrarte Otra Florencia 1. Queremos que vea más del 90% de las personas que visitan Florencia verá. ¡Tou Florencia es para viajeros, no para turistas! 2. No necesita que vayamos a estas áreas, hay muchas indicaciones en toda Florencia y puede encontrar mucha información en internet. 3. La mayoría de las visitas guiadas te llevarán hasta allí, pero somos diferentes y queremos mostrarte un lado diferente de Florencia. 4. Como queremos brindarle la mejor calidad de viaje, no vamos a Piazza del Duomo ni a Ponte Vecchio porque se llenan de gente y hay mucho ruido durante el día y sería extremadamente difícil escuchar y seguir la guía.

Sobre el tour

Our free walking tour of Florence starts in the middle of piazza S.Maria Novella; the tour will be guided in english. After the introduction we will talk about the history of Florence, just in front of the church of S.Maria Novella and after that we will walk to Piazza Antinori, to show some example of buildings of the XIX century, when Florence was the capital of Italy. Then we will reach piazza della Repubblica, that has been completely renovated in the XIX century but during the age of the roman empire was the market place of the city. Walking through via Calzaiuoli we will reach Orsanmichele. This church was originally built in 1337 as a grain market, then it was converted into a church used as the chapel of Florence’s powerful craft and trade guilds. After that we will arrive in piazza del Mercato Nuovo, a covered market, where its biggest attraction is the Fontana del Porcellino (Piglet Fountain), rubbing the animal’s nose would ensure you to return to Florence. We will reach Piazza della Signoria, the best place to show the power of the Florentine Republic. There we will talk about Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of the city and the gallery of statues in the adjacent Loggia dei Lanzi that is one of the most significant public places in Italy. At this point of the tour there will be a break in a special place where people can taste some genuine products typical from Florence and Tuscany. A very important part of our tours is talking about the concept of sustainable tourism so we will give some pieces of advice about shops and restaurants, for example, how to recognize local places in Florence or how to avoid touristic shops. Through the old streets of Florence, we will finally reach Piazza Santa Croce where we will talk about the Basilica of Santa Croce that overlooks the square together with a marble statue named Monument to Dante. The tour ends here.
