What You Can Expect
No trip to Florence is complete without hearing the name Medici, the influential family who found themselves at the center of many scandals throughout the Middle Ages. Visit the Palazzo di Bianca Cappello, constructed by Cosimo Medici for his mistress and hear the story behind the couple’s mysterious deaths. Then, head past the residence of the one of Medicis’ greatest rivals, the Palazzo Strozzi, built for the Strozzi family. Continue on to the lavish Palazzo di Parte Guelfa, the headquarters of the Guelph family, another political rival of the Medici family.
Afterward, follow your guide toward some of Florence most beloved sites, such as the bustling Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, home to masterpieces from Botticelli, Michelangelo and more. As the sun goes down, stroll to the Arno River and admire a scenic view of the Ponte Vecchio.
Your final stop will be at one of Florence’s top gelato shops, where you can select from a wide of array of delicious flavors and walk the streets like a real Florentine, with ice cream in hand. After two hours of history, intrigue and sightseeing, your tour will conclude in central Florence, at Ponte Santa Trinità.
Very interesting and fun tour. Angelo our guide was very engaging, with perfect English. I expected the gelato at the end to be lame, but was actually one of the best we've had in Italy. We went back there the next day for more.
Angelo tells a great tale!
Angelo who gives this tour is amazing! He is super nice, entertaining and a little bit mysterious -
I really recommend this tour as it gave me a whole new perspective on Florence and its history!
Totally fun, exciting behind the typical areas and very interesting stories
Amazing DARK, FUNNY, AND ADULT, tour. Wonderfully, historical and entertaining.
Oh my gosh! This tour is fantastic! I did this my first night in Florence and what a great introduction to the history of the place. This tour isn't about art or the beauty of Florence but gives you a great guide to the different families of medieval Florence and how the city was constructed. The tour guide is fantastic and has such enthusiasm for the topic, then to top it off you get a gelato at the end from an amazing gelateria. 100 recommend!
Excellent tour, Angelo was a very good guide who really enjoyed telling about the history of Florence
Fantastic! We did this on our first night there and it was a great way to explore an unfamiliar city. If you are a lover of medieval politics like I am, then this tour is definitely for you, but the material is not so arcane that it would leave the other members of your party disinterested. Plus, the gelato at the end is definitely some of the best I have ever had in Italy. Angelo was a spectacular guide to Firenze! :
For the other planners and itinerary leaders out there: the timing of this tour also has a logistical advantage. It starts at 7:45 PM, which gives you plenty of time after the other attractions close to grab dinner. In our case, we got into Florence later in the day, so having something interesting and engaging to do before the day was over definitely helped us to feel as though we had still accomplished something, despite the long day of travel.
This is a great introduction to Florence, well informed genuine guide.
Not too much walking and a gelato to finish!
Awesome tour with an awesome guide!
