The Dark Side of Florence, Mysteries & Legends - Free Walking Tour

Duration: 1h and 45min
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. Afterwards, you'll be able to decipher Florence's symbols and read its architecture and statues on your own, like you're wearing Renaissance glasses.

THE DARK SIDE OF FLORENCE, MYSTERIES AND LEGENDS 




In this tour, we’ll show you the hidden and ghoulish side of Florence, with stories of ghosts, murders, betrayals, and curiosities that go beyond the typical history of the city.
 
Have you ever heard about the Monster of Florence, one of the bloodiest serial killers? Are you curious about florentine superstitions, conspiracies, unexplained things, saints, miracles, or tortures? If so, this is the tour for you.
 
*We just warn that some topics may hurt some sensitivities and may not be suitable for the public under 18.

Come with us and discover the side of Florence that doesn’t appear in tourist guides, so disturbing, lurid, and unsettling that will make you have a sleepless night. ha ha ha

Fue espectacular! Giacomo nos hizo recorrer lugares de Florencia que ningún otro guía nos había hecho recorrer, además de contarnos historias típicas de la ciudad que nos dejaron sin palabras. Cuando termino el recorrido nos dimos cuenta de que el tiempo había volado. Siempre agradecidos a la gente como el que le ponen tanta pasión a su trabajo!

The tour was great with a lot of interesting, but tragic stories. We didn't walk a lot, but we stood and listened. I would definitely recommned this tour to a friend. Francesca was a great tour and very interested in the story herself. You can see she has a passion for Florence.

The guru was very engaging and a good story teller, conducted the tour incredibly well. The stories were more of tragic medieval romances than dark history per se, bar one recent mafia incident. No mention of the infamous monster of Florence.
