The Best Tour in Florence: Renaissance and Medici Tales
Overview of the tour in Florence
This tour is the best walking tour that you can ever have in Florence. It 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 to let you get a unique and unforgettable experience.
Our tours are conducted by professional and licensed tour guides, and it's TOTALLY FREE to book and join the group, but we recommend rewarding the guide at least 10 euro for his/her job and to support the project.
