About the tour

With this tour I offer you the possibility of knowing Florence through the eyes of a Florentine.

The tour begins in Santa Croce, the neighborhood where I grew up, where I will tell you the stories of those who lived here: wool workers, the Knights Templar and the Franciscan friars.

We will also pass through less touristy and more authentic streets, to reach the heart of the city: the Cathedral and Cupola, where I will tell you several anecdotes about the Churches and the Square. We will also visit other wonders of the city including the Municipal Palace and Ponte Viejo. It will be a tour that will mix the typical with the hidden, and will allow you to discover the real Florence.

Gabriele es una persona muy agradable que transmite su pasión por la historia, y como buen Florentino la conoce a la perfección. Recomendamos la experiencia y de haber tenido más tiempo nos hubiera gustado realizar otro tour con él. Ha sido un verdadero placer.

Gabriele es un guía excelente y un gran conocedor de Florencia. Sus explicaciones son perfectas y muy amenas. Es un gran conocedor de la historia de la ciudad y no sólo la cuenta muy bien sino que te hace vivirlas. Además como nativo, que es, nos ha aconsejado donde comer y disfrutar de la ciudad. Muy recomendable.
