5 historical facts to take on your Florence walking tour

Lace up your hiking shoes and put your art hat on: you're finally ready for that walking tour of Florence! But why not get a headstart on a few interesting facts your guide might not cover?

Planning Your Visit

  • How hard is it?

    Florence's heart is fairly easy to cover by foot and most walking tours clock in at just an hour or two, unless they include tours of the Uffizi or other galleries and museums. If you're concerned about lasting the length of even a short tour, we'd advise you to check the itinerary doesn't include a climb up the Duomo's 463 steps, or uphill to the Piazzale Michelangelo.

  • How do the free tours work?

    Free walking tours are perfect for those visiting on shoestring budgets or simply unsure how much to pay in advance. There is a catch, though! Remember the guides do this for a living so bring some cash and pay what you think it was worth at the end. Otherwise, brace yourself for a guilt-trip!

Best way to see Florence! Our guide Carmen was amazing and so knowledgeable, she tailored our tour to accommodate to a slightly slower pace since my parents couldn’t walk too fast. She answered all the questions we had along the way and even provided tips for places to go see on our own during the rest of our visit in Florence. Her voice was very soothing and easy to listen and my family and I enjoyed spending the day with her exploring the city. Entrance to the museums was faster and the galleries were even more interesting and enjoyable thanks to our guide. Will definitely recommend!

The museum is very interesting to do it with a guide And the climb to the dome if they explain it to you much better The baptistery in my opinion is less worth it The cathedral is seen when you climb the dome, it is very empty. Worth the activity

Highly recommend this tour. One of the best tours my husband and I have done to date. Tour guides were extremely engaging, passionate and friendly. Couldn’t have asked for any better.

Well planned programme. Both Chris & Gabriel were careful on the time planning to ensure that all participants are attended to.
