A memorable experience in Florence for kids and adults


Discover Florence with your kids in a funny and pleasant way!

A classic walking tour might seem boring for the children, but I will make sure that they will enjoy the stroll through the city centre.

The ice-cream break is a must :-) as they will also discover how a Florentine guy invented the ice-cream.

This guided tour of Florence for kids and their parents includes a stop to the Bartolucci shop, the best way to bring to live the story of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.

Your children will discover many things about Florence in a pleasant way, discovering numerous stories about the Medici family, " the kings" of Florence, about Michelangelo and his rival, Leonardo da Vinci and the spots that hide mysteries and exciting stories.

Itinerary

Piazza del Duomo is the religious centre of the city. We will discover here one of the oldest architectonical monuments, the Baptistery, the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Bell-Tower.
Piazza della Repubblica, the square is famous for its historic caffès and pastry shops.
Our next stop will be Orsanmichele, a special church in Florence with a fascinating history.
We will walk towards the former straw market that the Florentines call "Mercato del Porcellino" because of the bronze statue of a wild boar with a shining nose.
Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence.
We will also admire the Uffizi building, right next to
Piazza della Signoria, an open air museum unique in Tuscany and even in Italy with its magnificent statues.
The Bartolucci Shop dedicated to Pinocchio.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful, Wonderful experience with Eliza from start to finish. If you have kids form 8-12 years old (we have 4), Eliza will be your best guide at Florence. Kids walked whole afternoon close to 3 hours under the brutal sun without a word of complaining. She can totally engage with your kids and tailor your tour toward kids and have learn some arts, histories, and interesting thing that only local knows in very interesting and interactive ways. Highly recommend!
