    The Stories of Florence for Kids

The Stories of Florence for Kids

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 2 hours

Created for children, this tour covers the highlights of central Florence in a fun and engaging manner, through legends, true stories, and anecdotes.


Fun for the entire family, including the littlest ones, this tour covers all the highlights of Florence to reveal the city's rich history through legends, true stories and anecdotes. An engaging guide will meet you in Piazza della Repubblica to illustrate how the city grew from its ancient Roman roots. Next comes the Straw Market, where you will encounter the bronze Porcellino ("Piglet"). Legend has it that rubbing the statue's nose will ensure your return to Florence; all those hands have given him a very shiny nose!

Walking by the Ponte Vecchio with its glittering goldsmith's shops, you come to Piazza della Signoria, the political center of town, both then and now. Palazzo Vecchio has been the seat of power for more than 700 years and it hides secret passageways and stone prisons behind its fortress-like facade. Romance and intrigue continue in Dante's neighborhood - here the famous poet met his beloved Beatrice. Pinocchio, the wooden puppet who becomes a boy, lives here too; pose for a picture with him before a gelato stop.

The tour ends in Piazza Duomo, dominated by the multi-colored cathedral topped by Brunelleschi's majestic dome, the Bell Tower by Giotto and the octagonal Baptistery whose exquisite "Gates of Paradise" are encrusted with sculpted greyhounds, giants, and lizards.
