A Walking Tour of Florence for Kids...Up to Age 99


Florence, the heart of the Renaissance, presents such an enormous concentration of important art and history that the typical adult-centered walking tours and museum visits can leave kids (and plenty of adults) completely overwhelmed. This tour was specifically designed to keep kids engaged and learning about the city's rich history and some of its most important art while having fun. Kids will hear some of the Florence's most interesting facts and legends as we make our way through the heart of the city. There'll also be an extraordinary opportunity to get a feel for day-to-day life in early Renaissance Florence with a visit to the Museum of the Ancient Florentine House: Palazzo Davanzati. The tour will end with a visit to one of the city's foremost artisinal gelaterias where the long and illustrious history of gelato will accompany a demonstration of its preparation and (the most important and delicious part): a taste-test of the product!

Itinerary

Piazza della Signoria - with external viewing of Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, and Loggia dei Lanzi
Loggia del Porcellino
Palazzo Davanzati (internal visit)
Gelato Demonstration with Tasting

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will pick you up at your hotel if it is within Florence's historic center. Otherwise we will arrange a meeting point that suits you.

End location: The tour ends in the historic center at your hotel. You may also make an advance request for an alternative end point within the Historic Center.

Duration: 2 hours

PLEASE NOTE: The two-hour tour duration applies only to the length of my walking tour. However, you should plan for a total duration of THREE HOURS to allow for the gelato demonstration that I will be arranging for you to attend following the walking portion of your tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Paola was a superb guide-- very informative and wonderful with our three grandchildren--ages 8, 6, and 2. A native Florentine who obviously loves her work. She made Florence come alive for our grandchildren. Would highly recommend the tour, especially if Paola was the guide.
