At a spot near Dante’s home your guide will tell you about the Church of Dante and Beatrice. Stop to see Palazzo Vecchio, the location of the guilds, and the Medici family political court.

Amazing walking tour through the city. We learned so much about the city and history of Florence that isn't covered by the museums and attractions. Our guide Erica was amazing, filled with passion and knowledga about all things Florence. This is a must do tour upon arriving in Florence to give you a great backdrop of the city and its sights. We left with a new perspective on one of our favorite cities in the world!

The tour was interesting but the price seemed excessive to me as if I had bought it directly in Florence in the same place from which the tour started, I would have paid a sixth. For this reason I put low scores on everything except the driving which was flawless.
