Florence is one of Europe’s most important tourist destinations and it can be very difficult to visit it without a local guide who will help you to find your way there. Free Tour Florence team supports sustainable tourism idea and we want to introduce you to the less known parts of the city, to tell you something you’d never find on common travel books. Our purpose is to show you this amazing city through the eyes of an insider and to help you to live it as a local does! So why we don’t go to Piazza del Duomo or to the Ponte Vecchio? Because we want to show you Another Florence 1. We want you to see more than the 90% of people visiting Florence will see. Free Tour Florence is for travellers, not for tourists! 2. You don’t need us to go to these areas, there are many indications all over Florence and you can find plenty of information online. 3. Most guided tours will take you there but we are different and we want to show you a different side of Florence. 4. Since we want to provide you the highest quality tour, we don’t go to Piazza del Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio because they become extremely crowded and loud during the day and it would be extremely difficult to hear and follow the guide.

Andrea ha sido una guía excepcional. Nos ha dado muchísima información histórica, anécdotas e interesantes recomendaciones de establecimientos donde se puede comer o tomar algo con buena relación calidad/precio. Resolvió todas nuestras dudas y al final del tour fue muy amable acompañándonos a uno de estos locales y por el camino nos estuvo dando más información interesante sobre Florencia.

Gracias Andrea por darnos este fantástico recibimiento en nuestra primera visita a la ciudad del Renacimiento. Recomendable al 100%. Además podrás visitar la ciudad al atardecer.
