Kid Friendly: Yes. The tour and explanations are more geared for adults but can be easily modified for older children. This is not a "kid's tour

Friendly: Yes.
Florence is not a completely handicap friendly city. The sidewalks are not always wide and many street are paved in cobblestones. There are some ramps and elevators. I have done this tour many times with travelers in wheelchairs, but it's best if you are accompanied with a strong individual who can help maneuver the difficulties.

Maximum travelers: 6

A Recent Review of this tour

Laura was a fantastic tour guide in Florence, Italy. She's incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and funny. She answered all of our questions, and gave us a tour tailored to our interests. When we're back in Florence, we will ask Laura to show us more of the rich history and art of Florence.
