About the tour

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 ways up and down that require a bit of effort.

Places visited:

1. Galileo's house and Bardini gardens.

2. St George's gate and Belvedere Fortress.

3. Old city walls and olive groves.

4. San Miniato's gate.

5. Roses garden and first landscapes.

6. San Miniato church. Visit and panoramic views.

7. Piazzale Michelangelo. Landscapes and sculptures.

8. San Niccolo's gate and neighborhood.

9. Bardini museum and via de' Bardi.

Because of logistics, booking at least 12 hours in advance is required. Thank you.

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!
