An incredibly interesting and informative tour about many of the most famous places, buildings, statues and more around Florence. Our guide Giulio was very knowledgeable about everything we walked past and its history. We highly recommend this tour as it will give you a lot of insight into things you would not think about if you just walked past it by yourself.

If you like history, this is the tour for you. In the two hours you will get lots of information and an introduction to many of the squares in the city center. Natalia who was our guide was exceptional. As busy as Florence is, she made sure the group was together at all times. Well worth two hours of your time.
