Florence: Hiking - Walking

City of Stone

Walking tours in Florence, with professional and specially trained guides, are very popular and as this city is so small and closely laid out, as far as museums and monuments go, you will end the day feeling as if you have taken in a thousand different views and facts. The tour guides offer a wealth of historical knowledge and convey it in an interesting way. If you’d rather you can make your own way around the city, which is best seen on foot, considering most visitors don’t hire cars, as the streets are narrow, so traffic is congested.

There are some lovely walking tours, which start at 30 euros, in which you can admire the view from the old bridge overlooking the river and discover parts of this lovely medieval city that you never imagined existed. Walking in Florence is an absolute pleasure, thanks to its flower-filled parks and majestic piazzas, as well as its awe-inspiring architecture.
