Explore the allure of Florence, one of Italy’s most beautiful cities. Our Treasures of Florence Tour will introduce the most interesting places in the city with an expert kid-friendly guide. The whole family will appreciate the world-renowned historic Duomo (the city's cathedral), the center of Florentine religious life in both ancient and modern times.
Through the colourful marketplaces, beautiful squares and classical architecture, you will have a fantastic overview of the city of the Italian Renaissance. The whole family will have fun as they learn thanks to the different activities organised by the guide: quizzes, games and trivia tailored to your kids ages and interestes.
You will visit Florence's political centre, the Piazza della Signoria, while the imposing Palazzo Vecchio houses a noteworthy collection of Renaissance statuary. You will discover what inspired their creation, and their importance to the people of Florence.
No tour would be complete without a walk over the medieval Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence. Then you will listen to the curious story of this “stinky” bridge of old, and the kids will love it. In 1563 King Ferdinand I decreed that no butchers could set up shop along the bridge, due to the health hazards of rotting meat, so jewellers took their place.
Be sure to put a coin in the mouth of Il Porcellino, a statue of a wild boar, for good luck, and rub his nose to secure your return visit to Florence, city of beauty and wonder.
Florence’s sights, sounds and flavours await you.
