During the walking tour you will receive useful information regarding the history of Florence and the Renaissance period, touching all the most important sights of the city, as the Church of San Lorenzo, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, the Baptistery of St. John, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the majestic Brunelleschi's Dome, Repubblica Square, the Medieval District with Dante’s House, Strozzi Palace, Tornabuoni Street, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti with the Boboli Gardens, the Straw Market, the Church of Santa Croce, Orsanmichele Church, Piazza Signoria and the imposing Palazzo Vecchio.

Handover of the pen worked without any problems. We were only told that we should return it after 6 hours, so it didn't matter if we made a reference to the booking. The texts were informative, everything worked out technically and you could see the most important things. As the sole source, it is not enough, but was a nice addition! A pen for two people is enough!

Practice making a first location of important sites

An audiotel for 2 is enough, the sound is quite loud. very practical place of deposit (in a travel agency). Please note this is an overview which gives the main information, it may not be enough depending on what you expect.
