About the tour

This tour is a great introduction to the city for both first-timers as well as returners. It covers the main attractions of the city and also the hidden gems that are well and truly "off the beaten track" and gives you facts you wouldn't know or notice walking around by yourself.

While you 'll be led through the city you will be even accompanied through three centuries full of thrilling stories about the Medici family who influenced Florence’s history; little by little the Renaissance will become alive in front of you.

You will not be involved in a boring, neutral lecture, but in a pleasant stroll through the center of Florence, taking in everything as it comes but also learning plenty about the history of the city in a friendly and easy-going atmosphere.

This tour is about Florence, naturally, but it is also about you and what you would like to get from a guided tour to let you get a unique and unforgettable experience.

Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your tour now!

Meeting point

How to find me: The meeting point is in front of the façade of SAN LORENZO church (main entrance, not the entrance of the Medici chapels) next to the marble statue of Giovanni de' Medici who is sitting on a small throne. Look for a small red flag.

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 €10 per person, some people give US‎$ 50, you choose the price.

For organizational purposes, it is mandatory to book the tour. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
