Florence from above. Alleys, gardens and views
I'm an authorized tour leader, with official license. I'm also a physicist, immigrant in Europe, astronomer, father of an adolescent girl, world citizen, concerned about the environment, seeker of a healthier life in an increasingly entangled world.
A couple of hours are enough to escape the bustle of the crowds and, through rustic alleys and gardens, get to the old city walls that will eventually lead us to the highest points in town.
In this walk you will be able to visit the best preserved church in Tuscany, and enjoy breath-taking landscapes of the whole city from the legendary Piazzale Michelangelo.
BEWARE: it's a lightly demanding walk, with a couple of hills up and down that require a bit of effort.

1. Galileo's house and Bardini gardens.
2. St George's gate and Belvedere Fortress.
3. Old city walls and olive groves.

How much does this tour cost?
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
