See the highlights of the capital of Italian Renaissance with your whole family during this walking treasure hunt, created to be a pleasant adventure for both the grownups and the youngsters.

Your kid-expert guide will take you on an itinerary through the central streets of the city to discover its history and evolution through the centuries. You will stop at the Santa Croce Basilica, an authentic Renaissance’s gem, and listen to interesting and useful anecdotes and stories about the lives of the famous Italian that are buried there, including Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Rossini.

See the famous Ponte Vecchio, the picturesque bridge that crosses the Arno River, Piazza della Signoria, the political center of the city, with its Loggia, that displays a beautiful collection of statues, and Palazzo Vecchio. You will learn about the history of these iconic places with interesting commentaries and captivating descriptions, then you will be tested with fun quizzes and trivia.

Your guide will give you clues and hints to look for details on the buildings or for specific monuments and statues all over the historic center, including Piazza del Duomo, where you will find Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptisery, and Mercato Nuovo.

The 4 boys in our group (aged 10-16) at first had absolutely no interest in doing a guided tour of Florence and thought the treasure hunt idea was a bit juvenile for them. In fact, they had opted to do a morning in the Uffizi as it was forecasted to be over 100 F/39 C degrees while we were in Florence and they wanted air conditioning vs walking outside for 2.5 hours in the heat.

After a little convincing, they agreed to the tour and what a fun morning we all had! Giulia was sweet and highlighted Florentine history well which kept our kids engaged and excited as they listened to stories of the Medici family and learned about sculptures and buildings and an ancient “soccer/rugby” field.

The Treasure Hunt which pitted the adults against the kids kept the pace and interest up with a friendly rivalry as we scoured buildings and piazzas for highlighted items along the way.

What was really wonderful was that the Grade 8 curriculum that two of our kids had just studied covered the Renaissance and some of Florence as well and they were avid Percy Jackson series readers back a few years ago so the boys were very proud and excited to be able to shout out answers to many questions or fill in info that Giulia shared with us about famous Florentines, the Renaissance, and Roman mythology that many of us adults had long forgotten. A perfect way to make their education come alive!

Overall, the kids and adults alike all had an entertaining and educational morning with the tour of Florence and the Treasure Hunt - despite the ridiculous heat! The gelato that was included in the tour (at one of the best gelaterias in Florence) also helped to keep spirits high and internal temperatures down! We’d highly recommend this tour and only wish we knew about the Percy Jackson tour of Rome when we were there last week! Grazie mille, Giulia!! Bravo!!

I was invited by my company to join a meeting in Florence and after hours of dull lectures we participated to this scavenger hunt. We were divided in teams and we competed. I still regret arriving second because the winners got a nice prize. Nonetheless was a fun afternoon and i really enjoyed it.
