Enjoy our Expert Panoramic Segway tour! We will lead you on a steep rise to reach our panoramic terrace: Piazzale Michelangelo, where you can see all of the city’s monuments, churches, palaces from the top! This is just the best place to take pictures and enjoy the amazing scenery.
We will go back to the city going down from the other side of the hill to visit “the other side of Florence”: Oltrarno, the district where most of the Florentine people still live and work!! We’ll head to Piazza Santo Spirito, the heart of the Florence Movida, with a beautiful church and picturesque bars. This square also holds a secret about Michelangelo and his early works. Of course, we will give you some hints on where the locals usually have aperitivo and dinner so that you can mingle with them.
Next stop is Piazza Pitti, the second residence of the Medici family and the biggest palace of the city. Behind the Palace still stands what used to be the family’s private garden: Boboli Gardens, great to have some rest from the crowd and to admire the many statues, fountains and secret passages!.
We’ll come back to the city center of Florence crossing the Carraia bridge, with Ponte Vecchio on our right.
This tour is a perfect solution for you if you have already visited the classical sights of Florence and you’d like to get an overview of the city, visit a traditional neighborhood and find out more about our history and Medici’s family!
