Tour Description
Imagine the wide-eyed wonder and awe as your child turns the corner to gaze up at a burst of shimmering emerald green and snowy white in the heart of the city. Picture their joy exploring the narrow streets that feel like secret passageways, their curiosity as they decode the stories carved into the Baptistry door, and their enthusiasm exploring the unique shops on the Ponte Vecchio.

Led by a Florentine expert, your child will uncover the hidden symbols of Florence, including lilies and the Strozzi's moons, while learning about the city’s most prominent attractions. Your guide will weave a captivating story into your exploration, bringing the Renaissance era to life for both children and parents.

You may also see the beloved Porcellino (little pig) who stands guard at the town market. No child visiting Florence can resist touching his golden snout!

Allow the city to come to life and revel in its rich history and playful spirit. Now you’ve been introduced to some of its most colorful characters and enduring legends! 

From here, your children will have a better understanding of the city, and you’ll feel more comfortable exploring Florence further together as a family.

  • You have a budding artist or archaeologist in the family who is keen to uncover the history of the city with an expert by their side. 
  • You want to familiarize yourself with Florence, but would like to do so with a kid-friendly focus to accommodate younger travelers. 
  • You want to see your child’s face light up with curiosity as they explore this historically significant destination. 
  • You’d like to have a guide deliver the historical significance of the city in a fun and engaging way that allows you to learn alongside your children and create meaningful memories that will last long after the tour is over.

A few things that pair well with this tour:

My children are in their early to mid-teens. Is this walk appropriate for them? 
Our family tours are primarily designed for children under the age of 13, and this one, in particular, is ideal for young kids. For teens we would recommend our private Introduction To Florence: With Accademia And Michelangelo's David tour as the content can be adapted to an age-appropriate level.

Will this tour be engaging for parents as well?
Parents are encouraged to ask questions and explore along with their children. Our guides are happy to make this experience valuable for adults as well, but keep in mind that the overall focus will be geared toward children. 

Do we go inside the Duomo or just see it from the outside? 
All venues are seen from the exterior only on this tour.

Will there be a place to stop for a restroom if needed? 
There will be time for a bathroom stop, as well as several places to rest for a quick break as you explore.

Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our time with Sandro today. He was wonderful with the kids, highly knowledgeable, and led a well-structured tour. We learned a great deal about the history of Florence and walked away from the tour with a deeper understanding of the city and its culture. Thank you Sandro!
Perhaps we didn't fully realize what this tour would be. For our girls (ages 9 & 7) this tour was a little underwhelming for their attention span.
We had a really great tour experience. It was just at the right pace - we felts like our kids learned but also were just enjoying the experience. Our children are different ages (5 and 10) so some was more meaningful to our eldest, but both seemed engaged and had fun. Would not hesitate to recommend to others.
