Tour description

Would you like to see Florence when you wake up ? This is the tour for you!

A pair of comfortable shoes, a bottle of water and you will be ready for a dynamic and healthy walk of about two hours in the silence of the early morning with few people around and without traffic noise.

We will start from the historic center and via the southern hill we will arrive at one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the city: the Piazzale Michelangelo which, with a replica of David in bronze in the center, dominates Florence.

An unmissable opportunity to admire Florence and its monuments from above: the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Museum, the Duomo and its Dome, Piazza della Signoria and many other places where we won't stop telling you the story and a little anecdotes. .

The photos you take with the light and colors that only early morning can give you will remain a unique testimony of your trip to Florence!

Through the Oltrarno , the most characteristic neighborhood of Florence, where the real Florentines live, we will return to the city center and everyone will be able to continue the day at their leisure.

"Il mattino ha l'oro in bocca" says an Italian proverb (meaning: "The morning has gold in its mouth "). This experience will make you touch it with your hand! Take this tour to live an unforgettable experience! We are waiting!

Easily one of the best walking tours we've done. Ludi was very knowledgeable and personable. She gave us so much information, whilst keeping us entertained, engaged and interested. We took a beautiful route and she pointed out so many things we would have otherwise walked past. She gave us lots of recommendations for the reminder of our trip too. Perfect

The fact that we were only 3 walkers and this guide (Ludi) did not cancel the tour shows graciousness on her part. The tour was great which covered the back streets, few churches, and the non-touristy areas of Florence. Ms. Ludi also shared her favorite spots to eat and shop. Very good tour & guide and I highly recommend it.
