What makes this tour special

Florence is one of the world’s finest preserved ancient cities, and venturing off the tourist drag is near impossible to perfect without a local tour guide, and it's worth every moment of serenity. On your private, off-the-beaten-path walking tour of Florence you will:

With its grandiose stucco swirls and ornate frescos, Tuscany’s cultural capital boasts a richly-historical and glorious artistic patrimony. Spellbinding statues and monuments rise up from ancient streets once strolled by the fathers of Italian painting, Cimabue and Giotto. However, to find the best of the city’s hidden gems, you need to venture off the beaten path to neighbourhoods thronging with locals but lacking in the tourist buzz. 

Your private tour guide will help you discover Florence’s western district - which tourists often miss. As you snap pictures of the awe-inspiring vistas, hearing the hilltop’s millennia of history will uncover the authenticity hidden in plain sight in Tuscany’s capital. 

Pro-tip: To avoid walking the vertical hillside to your tour start, take a quick taxi ride from the city centre to San Miniato al Monte.
