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 wonderful, we – this is an almost private tour with 4 people – had a lot of fun on our tour, and saw a lot of hidden spots absolutely worthwile seeing, some great insights into Florentine life, and an exceptional finish in the restaurant where our tour ended. Thank you, any time again!

We were very excited for this walk but unfortunately, Francesco did not show up at the meeting point. We tried to call him but the nummer mentioned in the email was incorrect. Then, we tried to reach him via guruwalk and after half an hour he responded that he was sick and had overslept. He made his apologies and after we asked, he sent us the route we would walk with him, which was good because now we could still see some things we had not seen before. Good to know might be that some things, like the fort, are closed on Mondays. It would have been nice to know Francesco was sick a day before or earlier on the day. Also, check why the phone number is incorrect.

Response from Francesco
Apologies for all the inconveniences and troubles i created. Francesco.
