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!

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
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
