About the tour

With this tour I offer you the possibility of knowing Florence through the eyes of a Florentine.

The tour begins in Santa Croce, the neighborhood where I grew up, where I will tell you the stories of those who lived here: wool workers, the Knights Templar and the Franciscan friars.

We will also pass through less touristy and more authentic streets, to reach the heart of the city: the Cathedral and Cupola, where I will tell you several anecdotes about the Churches and the Square. We will also visit other wonders of the city including the Municipal Palace and Ponte Viejo. It will be a tour that will mix the typical with the hidden, and will allow you to discover the real Florence.

El tour fue fantástico, combinando datos básicos para alguien que acaba de llegar a la ciudad con detalles curiosos sobre algunos de los lugares más emblemáticos de Florencia. Muy recomendado para aquellos que quieran descubrir la ciudad partiendo de 0 de la mano de un guía atento, divertido y con pasión por hacer su trabajo.

A very good historical tour of Florence, Alberto was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. Although at an hour and a half it did feel a little short.
