Languages: English, Spanish
Quality Verified Registered on February 26, 2019

We’re a group of friends and authorized tour guides of Florence, although we’d prefer to introduce ourselves as storytellers! Explaining history as a TALE is part of our NAME, BRAND and SOUL. We’re in love with our hometown and we’d like to transmit it to you, through its many stories, funny anecdotes and curiosities, that will make you travel into the past and LIVE IT as if it was a tale, and you, the main character. After this tour, you’ll see Florence from a completely different standpoint, and you’ll be able to decipher its symbols, and read its architecture and statues by yourself, as if your wore Renaissance glasses.
