Pose Like Michelangelo’s David

First on this kid-friendly Florence walking tour, learn about the life of Michelangelo and the most famous statue in Florence: the David. Just after the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery is Florence’s most visited museum and long lines are usually inevitable. Not for you and your family though - we reserve your skip the line Accademia tickets ahead of time. Tickets are included in the tour price.

Florentine Paper-Making Workshop

At the next stop on this family-friendly Florence walking tour, watch a paper-making demonstration before you and your kids practice making some yourselves. This hands-on experience is fun and educational for the whole family and teaches children about traditional Florentine culture. The kids get their own pieces, after showing off their creativity. 

Italian Food for Kids

Not only is Florence filled with historic monuments and amazing art, but it’s also home to amazing Italian food. Visit San Lorenzo Market and learn about some of the most typical Florentine dishes. The market is actually comprised of two separate areas, the indoor market filled with food stands and tables to sample the local fare, and then there is outdoor section around the perimeter of the Mercato Centrale building lined with leather, clothing and souvenir vendors.

San Lorenzo’s Unfinished Facade

Michelangelo was the favored architect of the Medici family, and was hired to finish this splendid church. However, despite his extravagant plans, he never completed the facade. At this point, your kids get to play architect and help out the great artist using their own ideas for alternative facades. 

The Iconic Duomo Cathedral

This colorful cathedral is Florence's most recognized landmark. The Duomo, also known as Santa Maria Del Fiore, features a magnificent Renaissance dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. From outside the Duomo, learn about this amazing piece of architecture, and the famed bronze Baptistry Doors. Praised by generations of artists and art historians, the doors depict stunning scenes from the Old Testament.

Time for Gelato

It’s time for a stop for Italy’s favorite dessert, gelato. Did you know Florence is the birthplace of Italian ice cream? Invented by Buontalenti during the Renaissance period, gelato was created to serve at a feast for the Grand Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici. While gelato is not included in the price of the tour, it’s both inexpensive and delicious. Also, It is here that your kids receive their well-deserved Florentine prize.

Merry-Go-Round Ride

Finish off your day in Florence with a ride on the famous merry-go-round in Piazza Repubblica. This piazza is one of the largest and most famous squares in Florence - since Roman times it’s marked the center of the city. With 20 horses and two gold painted “king’s carriages”, the gorgeous carousel is painted in joyful red, blue and gold hues. Before you say farewell, make sure you ask your local Florentine guide about where to eat in Florence, all our guides know their cities like the backs of their hands.
