This Florence walking tour will give you an introduction to Florentine city, considered one of Italy’s most beautiful treasures. My three-hour tour takes you to some of the most outstanding monuments in the city centre of Florence with a lot of curiosities and funny stories. We will visit most places from outside, maybe entering some church, courtyard or loggia. I would like to give you the introduction to the history of the city, to the renaissance, the Medici family and the main artists.

If you are passionate about dark stories, this tour is definitely for you. Crimes, passions and intrigues, murders and poisonings, prostitution and homosexuality, ghosts and public executions. Today, we see the beauty of the renaissance, and we idealize this period of history. But ours Michelangelo and Leonardo walked the streets full of violence and superstition. Discover it with me.
