This walk will lead you to the heart of the Renaissance in Florence: from the buildings and works of art visited, to the atmosphere and life in the Florence of 14th and 15th centuries. It is the best way to start your visit to the city, or to get to know the most important sites in the historic center so that you can spot those deserving a thorough visit in the near future. Ideal for getting your bearings and having fun!

1. Ponte Vecchio, Vasarian Corridor

2. Alleyways and hidden squares of medieval Florence

3. Piazza della Signoria, Loggia dei Lanzi

4. Mercato del Porcellino, Palazzo Vecchio

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Nos encantó el tour. Atahualpa nos llevó a recorrer los lugares más emblemáticos de Florencia, contándonos la historia de aquellos sitios así como también dándonos a conocer a los arquitectos, escultores, artistas, etc. principales de Florencia en el renacimiento. Un tour súper recomendable que no se pueden perder quienes quieren conocer esta hermosa ciudad.
