If you're looking for ghost stories you'll be disappointed, but it you'd like a pleasant historical, architectural and cultural history tour of this wonderful city then you will enjoy this tour. Angelo is extremely knowledgable and quite entertaining.

We were bitterly disappointed that the Florence Ghost Walk guide(s) never showed up. We reserved in advance. No notice of change or cancelation was received. The Tour is either out of business or extremely poorly run. We love Ghost tours and are sad and disappointed that the Florence Ghost experience was a bust. We sincerely hope other travelers won't waste... More

My husband and I love Ghost Tours, and we took this one on our first night in Florence. It was a good way to experience the city at night, and Nat was very informative as well as entertaining. It was a little pricy though.

Nat, our guide, never broke character, playing the part of a ghost away from her grave for the night. She provided insights into the darker history of Florence, including its most famous inhabitants. Asking us to participate by playing the roles of Michaelangelo, the town prostitute, the executioner, etc., we had more than a few laughs. Of course the other... More

I went with my husband on this tour ( OK, I drug him along) because I LOVE Florence and I love ghost tours. I have done Ghost tours in several other cities (Rome, Santa Fe, Rotenberg, etc), and by far this was one of the best. Nat gives an awesome tour, and we learned a lot about Florence that you...

I took my 4 dutch friends on this tour 2 weeks ago and we had a blast. GREAT stories, very passionate story teller and lot's of good memories. I don't want to reveal to much about the tour,if you think you would like a "dark " tour of Florence then book it!

My wife and I did this tour (run by Nat, who was great) and we had a really excellent time. It's more of a macabre history tour than a "ghost" tour, which I think is a good thing. The stories were both fascinating and entertaining, and the tour provides a nice break from the Florence museums. It also helps you... More

I am so happy that I found out about this very different and entertaining tour in Florence at night. I really enjoyed all the "behind the scenes" stories of dark Florence, everything from gruesome murders to tiny details on buildings that I never ever would have known were there. I recommend it especially to people that have been to Florence... More

My husband and I went on this tour our first night in Florence and we loved it. We were shown places and told things that we would have never known and no other tour revealed what we heard from this one. We felt like we now knew secrets that other tourists had no clue about. We highly recommend this tour.... More
