A special offer for families, new ways to discover the wonders of the city of Florence at all ages.


tour family

It is called Family Tour and it is made up of two different instruments dedicated to the families of young tourists and curious Florentines. On the one hand, there is the kit, the explorers’ back pack with materials for ten stages to discover the city.

On the other hand, instead, there is the technology of the APPS, digital interactive itineraries created around a theme or an historical figure.

These two instruments refer to two different age groups, 6-9 years or 10-13 years. The Family Tour is available in Italian and English, it will also be available soon in French and Spanish.

The kit allows visitors to discover Florence autonomously and give it back after three hours. The apps have been created on two thematic itineraries, Medici Florence and Roman Florence and can be downloaded from the Android store (look for Family Tour app).

You can find Family tour also in Fiesole, with an itinerary which is made of 10 steps, all of them dedicated to esploration and to discovery of Fiesole; the kit is made of a map, 10 postcards, a booklet for families.  But also a free APP leads you to the itineraries, and to the games to play. As well as for Florence, Fiesole materials refer to two different age groups, 6-9 years or 10-13 years. The Family Tour is available in Italian and English.

Where can I find the kits? They can be rented for free at the ticket office of the Mus.e and Palazzo Vecchio or at the Spedale degli Innocenti.
