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.

About the tour

"Keeping up with the Medicis" is your chance to dive into Florence's thrilling past and get to know its most famous family. Power, conquests, love affairs and a lot of murdering: in order to understand the history of Florence you have to know its greatest family, the Medici's.

For four centuries they have been the main protagonists, not only in politic but especially in art. We will follow their steps around Florence to discover the reasons behind their success, their rise and fall. Let me introduce you to Cosimo the Elder, Lorenzo il Magnifico, Anna Maria Luisa and many more...

Our tour will take place in the heart of Florence, cutting the city from east to west. Starting from the church of San Lorenzo, where the Medici's rest, we will visit Palazzo Medici Riccardi, their first house and the Cathedral (theatre of one of the most famous murderers).

We will also stop in Piazza della Signoria and follow the Vasarian Corridor across the river (Ponte Vecchio). We will end our tour in front of Palazzo Pitti, the last house of the Medici's.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Lo siento mucho, Juan, pero desafortunadamente las otras personas que habían reservado no aparecieron. Nuestra regla es que no hagas el tour con menos de 4 personas.
