Do not miss this informative tour, the new way to visit Florence in total freedom without wasting of time: take the opportunity to discover Florence in a funny, interactive and independent way!

You will be so free to dedicate to each point of interest all the time that you wish, alternating the experience of the visit with all the stops that you want to do!

Your audioguide is at your disposal as a "personal guide" for a whole day and you can play back the comments as many times as you like. The use of this magic pen is very easy. Simply passing it on one of the points of interest shown on the map provided with your audio guide, you can listen very clearly the commentary about the monument that you have reached: a great way to discover, one by one, all the not-to-be-missed sights and all the highlights of the "Cradle of the Renaissance". Also, your "audiopen" will provide interesting information about the Renaissance period and the famous and powerful Medici family.

During the walking tour you will receive useful information regarding the history of Florence and the Renaissance period, touching all the most important sights of the city, such as the Church of San Lorenzo, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, the Baptistery of St. John, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with the majestic Brunelleschi's Dome, Repubblica Square, the Medieval District with Dante’s House, Strozzi Palace, Tornabuoni Street, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti with the Boboli Gardens, the Straw Market, the Church of Santa Croce, Orsanmichele Church, Piazza Signoria and the imposing Palazzo Vecchio.
