Starting from the city center, your licensed hiking guide will take you to a panoramic trekking on the hills of Florence. You will first head towards the Rose Garden, a green terrace overlooking the historic center, to continue until Piazzale Michelangelo, known all over the world for its breathtaking view on Florence roofs and all its monuments. Just few steps away, get the chance to visit the monastic complex of San Miniato al Monte, a masterpiece of Florentine Romanesque architecture, which is over a thousand year old and one of the highest points of the city.
Other panoramic spots out of the crowd will be waiting for you: you will enjoy your walk between countryside roads and olives trees and surrounded by nature and astonishing landscapes, you will pass close to medieval towers and Renaissance villas, like Il Gioiello, where Galileo used to live the last years of his life. On your path, you will be charmed by historical Residences where famous artists used to live, including the musician Tchaikovsky and an astrophysics Observatory know all over the world, which has been observing the stars and universe since more than two centuries, arriving to the Medici’s Villa del Poggio Imperiale, part of the Unesco World Heritage.

We had an amazing morning discovering Florence hills by foot. We couldn't imagine that just few kilometres from the city centre there would be olive trees and vineyards and narrow streets surrounded by hills and green. We were on the top, able to admire all the city while listening to the birds chirping. Thanks!
We really enjoyed this outdoor expierience. Our guide was a passionate Italian lady who has travelled around the world but always comes back to Florence as it's there that her heart is.
We walked until the hills, we admired the amazing and crowded city centre from a quite spot, surrounded by olive trees.
Absolutely suggested to everyone, not difficult.
