Eco-Green Tours – See Florence from a different point of view
This is a cosy and relaxed way to sight-see. Perfect for anyone with mobility problems, if you’re travelling with kids or if you just want to see the town from a comfortable seat.
The tour offers a fascinating introduction to Florence, where comfort and cultural experience go hand in hand, or wheels to be precise. The standard tour has 20 stops and takes 1 hour and 30 minutes.
From Piazza della Repubblica, passing through the narrow streets that lead to Orsanmichele Church and Dante’s house, you glide around all the main squares and churches. And in the few spots where it’s not possible to circulate like Piazza Signoria, you’ll have time to hop off for some photographs. On this tour you’ll see all the main sights: from the Duomo to the church of Santa Croce and the Porcellino Market, Santa Maria Novella square and the scenic avenues along the river Arno. Crossing the river Arno you’ll be able to take the perfect picture of the Ponte Vecchio. And from there you’ll reach the charming streets of the Oltrarno and the impressive Pitti Palace.
To tackle this distance on foot would take the better part of a day, but with this introduction you can better decide which areas you’d like to walk around. And if you only have a few hours in Florence this is a way to guarantee you don’t miss a thing. Heated in the winter, you catch the breeze in the hotter months, as the open car proceeds along at a slow pace through the backstreets and the lively Florentine squares.
You can also add Piazzale Michelangelo to your tour, the terrace overlooking the city where you have ten minutes to capture those all-important pictures of Florence.
For a full cultural immersion, you can book one of the city’s guides who will fill you in on all Florence’s secrets. And if you’re dreaming of a shopping spree in Florence, your car can take you around boutique and luxury shops, in the height of comfort. Eco Green Tours also organises tailored made itineraries, for larger parties and events.
