How best to see as much of Florence as possible in two hours without feeling exhausted? Our family of four opted for an electric scooter tour. I’m so pleased we did! It was fantastic! Our lovely guide was passionate about the city, entertaining and professional. He was able to take us to places and make recommendations that we would have certainly missed had we been following a tourist map. We’d totally recommend the experience.
