About the Tour

Overwhelmed by all the things to see and know about Florence? Don’t you know where to start? Join our free tour! We’ve prepared a visit that can be easy followed by everybody, no matter the previous knowledge you have about the city. Either if it’s your first time in the town or you’re an expert, this tour is perfect for you!

How can it be? Well, our visit is an introduction, so we’ll show you the main HIGHLIGHTS of the city, but we’ve included some hidden gems and rare anecdotes that will make you travel into the past, and feel that you’re living one of the most important and revolutionary periods of all times: the RENAISSANCE, and the intrigues of one of the most powerful and influent families of history: the MEDICI. All in a relaxing, funny and easy-going way. We’ll also give you all the tips (what to visit, to taste ...) you need to take the most of the city and ENJOY it to the fullest!

“Ok ok, that seems very cool... but who are you??”

If you’re wondering this, it means that you’re so curious... and we love it! We’re a group of local friends and also official tour guides of Florence, although we’d rather introduce ourselves as STORYTELLERS! That’s why we chose “Tour-TALE” as our name. We love telling stories and make you fly throughout the history as it was a tale. We love traveling too and we’ve also been tourists, so we try to give you the kind of visit we’d like to find: clear and with a good balance between information, curiosities and funny anecdotes. With no stress, just chilling out and enjoying your holidays, while learning curiosities that you can explain when you go back home!

Our aim is that you to finish our tour with a smile and give you the best memory possible of your trip. Are you ready?

As the brain starts getting tired after a while (if you don’t, then we admire you so much), we’ve set the length of this tour in 2 hours. That’s enough to cover the main attractions of this city.

Great!!

Interesting tour - a good combination of history and fun facts (the giraffe was my favourite). It took just over 2 hours and was a great introduction to Florence. I took one of the recommendations for lunch, which turned out to be the best pizza I have ever eaten. Ps. In case anyone is interested: gusta pizza has the incredible pizza.
