Santa Maria Novella Square | In front of the church, 50123, Florence, Italy
We made the two tours the company offer.
The first one, Medici tour, was really really good. The guide, Katerina, explained everything professionally and answered every question, not just about the tour route but about the city as well. It was amusing, funny, very easy...More
Our guide Eleanora was really good passing the spirit of the city and giving tips about the best places here. It’s the perfect way to meet the “true Florence” rather than the tourist one. Totally worth it!
This was a good tour from Alice, she provided great insight and fun facts about Florence and the medicini family. We covered a good amount in the short amount of time. Would recommend this if you're in Florence and have the time. They offer 2...More
They need more guides as the tours are very big and it's difficult to hear in such crowded places. Interesting facts and a few places you might not have seen otherwise. You leave a tip for what you think the tour was worth. Book online...More
Our tour guide Daniele was from the city and told us great stories about Florence and Medici family. He showed most of the town and gave useful tips for the rest of our day. Wish we could also join the morning tour. Recommend you all!
This was our first walking tour with the La Bussola organisation. Jacamo was such a good guide and the Medici tour so accessible and interesting that we did the free walking tour with La Bussola in Venice as well. Highly recommended.
Great walking tour! We had both the Renaissance tour and de Medici tour, the first one with a lovely curly lady (I think the name was Katarina ) and the second one with Daniele. Both kept our interest during the walk and showed us lots...More
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
