Florence 1 day 3 stops 2.0 hours All Season 800


In recent years Florence has been absolutely flooded with tourism - and in such a small city, the millions of tourists are normally crowded into a few specific areas because many are traveling to a "check-list" way of vacationing - where they have to see a specific list of things in order to "experience" a place. With this tour, you won't check off any "famous" sights on your list, but you will get a sense of what Florence is without the crowds and the beauty that still exists in between the museums and the history.

       Get away from the crowds and enjoy local Florence.
