What you'll do

This walking tour will give first time visitors an introduction to the city of Florence and will as well give visitors who already know the city, the possibility of taking a deeper look into the history and curiosities linked to its most famous monuments and discover the origins of its extraordinary artistic and cultural treasures.

We will be walking among the most important monuments of the center of the city:
the magnificent Cathedral, “il Duomo”, crowned with Brunelleschi’s glorious dome, the Baptistry and Giotto’s Bell Tower. The tour will lead us further on to Piazza Signoria, the political center of the city with the prominent government building Palazzo Vecchio.
With its many original sculptures this square is also a true open- air museum, unique of its kind. We will then continue towards the legendary Old Bridge, full of beautiful goldsmiths shops and the loggia of the New Market, where, with a little bit of luck and the help of the bronze boar you might ensure your return to Florence in the near future. In the end, we will explore picturesque narrow streets of the old medival district.

During the walking tour all the monuments will be visited only from the outside.

I was born in Florence, a city of beauty, history and art concentrated in a single small place. When i realized that i didn't know much about my hometown, i decided to attend a course to obtain the Tour Guide License.
And after the licence i started to completely dedicate myself to this wonderful profession

Eine wunderbare und kompetente Führung. Die Führung war sehr persönlich, weil nur meine Söhne (16 und 12) und ich daran teilnahmen. Claudio hat sehr professionell sein breites Wissen als Einheimischer dem Publikum angepasst und es problemlos geschafft auch zwei Pubertierende 120 Minuten mühelos bei der Stange zu halten. Ich kann Claudio und seine Führung durch Florenz allen wärmstens empfehlen, die ein fundiertes Interesse an der Stadt, an ihrer Kultur und an ihrer Geschichte haben. Grazie di cuore, Claudio! E arrivederci.

Claudio had a deep understanding of the history and culture of Florence and was very approachable and friendly. He also offered to extend the tour since we stopped and showed more interest in some places than others.

Claudio is an amazing host! He really has a lot of knowledge about the city. We’re lucky to have a small group so we’re able to ask a lot of questions which he could answer all. Claudio is super friendly and funny and showed us not only the big highlights but also some new spots that I’d never seen before, although I had been to Florence 7 times. I would definitely recommend this tour, you’ll learn a lot and have a great time. Thank you Claudio!
