walk or hike Florence without the crowds
Excellent to escape the heat and crowds in high season (May through October), this tour is a genuine local treat. For years, this is how I enjoy my beloved Florence: an early morning romantic city walk or an energetic hike in the surrounding hills. Please specify your preferred option when booking:
WALKING OPTION: Beat the crowds to explore the city center and all the main monuments without tourists: Ponte Vecchio Bridge, Uffizi, piazza della Signoria, the Duomo, Baptistery, main streets and secret corners that remain hidden during the day. We talk history, artists, the Renaissance, trade and passions. The walk ends in one of the best local breakfast venues.
HIKING OPTION: Indulge in an early morning workout with spectacular views and an introduction to Florence. We pass on the hidden alleyways, up towards the hills, admire splendid villas and end the hike with the best panoramic view of the city. Workout level: 100 meter elevation gain, steep paved roads, steps. Local breakfast option after the hike.
Walking option: Florence center, all the main monuments.

Loved the early morning hike outside the city center to see a different side of Florence. Also enjoyed Anna's insights into the David and the Uffizi highlights. She was really friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, fun and great at tailoring her pace to our desires - both in speed of walking as well as the amount of time in the museums. Also was very nice about offering to take photos of us at various locations so we have momentos. Highly recommend her.
