This tour made us familiar with the history of Florence city. I highly recommend this tour. It is always worth to know the nook-n-cranny things of this historic city, which we could have missed otherwise.

I went on the 2pm Medici Tour with Fillipo. I already knew a little bit about Florence, but I was looking forward to finding out much more from a Walking Tour which I like to do in each city I visit. Fillipo was definitely knowledgeable and loves his city, however he was not engaging at all and I have not... More

The tour was a great introduction to Florence and a great way to spend the few hours I had in Florence. I did both the Renaissance and Medici tour and got a feel of Florence at the end of the day.

We arrived at the Santa Maria Novello Church and we met Daniel the tour guide.He said that the times of the Medici tour had been changed from 5pm to 2pm but was not stated on the website so if there were not enough people he would cancel the tour! We were 4 of us and hoped more people would turn... More

My mom and I had only one day in Florence (unfortunately!). These free walking tours allowed us to see the major sites as well as learn a lot of interesting things. We did both the morning Renaissance walk as well as the afternoon Medici walk. Both tours were great and compliementary to each other. The tour guides had excellent english,... More

We did this tour on a busy Sunday afternoon. Having done other tours during our month long trip, we were pretty disappointed with this one. It focused on the Medici family and there was a lot of assumed knowledge. Add to that the crowds of Florence and it made for an only average tour. In saying that, we got a... More

It was really monotonous. I would like to hear about curiosities, urban myths, legends, some of the current life in Florence. I got bored on this tour. It is not my intention to discredit, if they can improve these aspects the new insurance reviews will help.

We had an amazing time in Florence with this free tour company. We were only one day in this beautiful city and we didn't have too much time, so it was a fantastic idea to go both tours (Renaissance and Medicci). Tour guides were very professional and funny! I strongly recommend this company!

This tour is organised through facebook and there is no limit on how many people turn up. It is so overcrowded that it is ridiculous. On the day I did the tour there were 3 guides, they made us wait a long time in the hot sun before leaving and there would have been at least 40 people in our... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
