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.
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!

Did this tour on our first night and it was a great way to see the city in a less hectic and more personal way. We had a terrific tour guide and the walk was easy and went by so quickly. Highly recommend.
Really enjoyed this walk. Perfect length, not too long, but saw and learned a lot. Our guide Angelo told us lots of interesting history and I saw parts of the city I wouldn't have found on my own.
Amazing! A must see, so different from the other tours of Florence. You learn the little bits of history that made this city what it is. Highly recommended!!
PS: The gelato was amazing too!
Fredricka our guide was so enthusiatic and informative. Had a good sense of humor. Really enjoyed the stories and the back street atmosphere for them. Gelato good too. Highly recommemded guide.
Vanessa was an excellent guide and gave us a new perspective on Firenze history!
Angelo was without doubt the finest guide we have ever had. His knowledge and humour made it 2 hours of true entertainment. Could not fault Angelo or the tour in any way.
Nice way to start our visit. Our guide was full of interesting information about Florence. She was able to answer our questions and worked hard to please us.
