    The tour was a lot of fun, it was super interesting to explore Florence in the footsteps of the Medici. The tour is highly recommended for those who, after all the art in the city, would like to learn more about one of the most fascinating centuries in the history of Florence and everyday life under the rule of the Medici. Special thanks to our guide Emma - she was very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable, exciting and entertaining.

    We booked conveniently via the app at relatively short notice with 1.5 days in advance. It would be good if you could not only filter the date and the desired language, but also the number of participants. A big compliment & big thank you to our guide VICTORIA ♡! She gave us a great tour of the Medici topic, the content was conveyed very well, she responded directly to questions and all in all it was just a lot of fun with her!
