Guided walks and docent-led tours of Florence

I am a fan of walking tours in any city.

I try to take at least one new tour every time I visit Florence, and am always learning something new and fascinating. Even better, Florence walking tours typically only cost €19 ($21)–€60 ($66) each.

Tips

Stick by the guide

On any tour, stick next to the guide like a good, head-of-the-class nerd.

Walking from stop to stop on the tour, you’ll be able to chat with her, ask questions, and hear her answers and explanations not only to your queries but to  everyone else’s questions as well.

You'll get a whole lot more out of your tour (and bang for your buck) if you just stick close to the guide.
