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

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.

Tour description

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
