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!

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.
Tour duration: 2 hours

Manuel was a fantastic tour guide. His style was a perfect mix of history and anecdotes. We learned so much about the hidden details hidden all around Florence

El tour fue muy bueno, el guía Manuel era simpático y nos narró muy bien la historia de Florencia. Antes del tour hubo un problema, fue que yo lo solicite en español, pero al final no se completo el grupo y lo hice en inglés lo cual no fue problema se entiende que por la pandemia el turismo de habla hispana se ha reducido. Recomiendo el tour 100%.
