The Best tour in Florence: Renaissance and Medici Tales

The Best tour in Florence: Renaissance and Medici Tales

star-5
575
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, in a friendly and easy-going atmosphere. This tour, except the small commission for TripAdvisor, is based on donations. This means that if you like the tour you can leave a tip (some people give 10€, some people give 50€, you choose the price) to reward the guide.
