Full description
Florence is a city full of highlights and hidden gems, everywhere you walk has a story and a famous mastermind behind it. While this might sound interesting to you, what if you are traveling with your whole family? This family-friendly tour is the perfect solution. A friendly local guide is ready to take you and your family to see the best their city has to offer and they know the perfect ways to keep everyone entertained, especially your kids.  Start off at the perfect place to see the mix of highlights and hidden gems, the center and heart of Florence, Piazza della Repubblica. The place where everything started and where you’ll get an introduction into how Florence became the powerful center of the Renaissance. Then discover the pride of Florence, its beautiful cathedral with its dome that rises high, dominating the view of the city. Climb up the cathedral and enjoy a picture perfect view of Florence or wander through the museum inside, your friendly local can arrange everything you wish to visit and see.  Here’s the kid’s favorite part: a gelato stop. Try the best gelato in town while you immerse yourself in the relaxing atmosphere and conversation. Once their sweet tooth is satisfied, go on a fun paper decorating demonstration and get crafty. Afterwards, learn how a market got turned into a church and visit the Fontana del Porcellino. Then, head to Piazza della Signora, a hotspot for political events in Florence for centuries. For the last stop of the tour, head to Ponte Vecchio.

Michele is a very knowledgeable guide. He has a very engaging way of doing things and has managed to interest even our little daughters. 10 and praise for us, highly recommended!

Giorgio was a very likeable guide who kindly adapted the tour to include an age appropriate treasure hunt and a stop at the Lego store for my 6 year old upon request. Definitely recommend it!

Pleasant guide. Didn’t rush us. But no real engagement with children, which was disappointing as it was a “family friendly tour”.
