Pick-up service from your hotel/apartment or another meeting point is possible and will be checked by the tour provider individually.
If your hotel/apartment should be too far away from the city centre or not close to the tour route, then we will meet you at our standard meeting point at P.za Della Repubblica at the Column of abundance.
Standard meeting point:
We meet you at: P.za Della Repubblica at the Column of abundance or at your hotel/apartment address in Florence centre. Please let us know your hotel/apartment address in Florence during the booking progress. We will then check if we can meet you directly in front of your hotel/apartement main entrance.

The tour provider will get in contact with you to provide you with more detailed information after the tour was booked.
Please, bring along your mobile phone in case we need to contact each other.
DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
In Florence winter is usually not so cold (only in January or February the temperature goes below 10°), but summer can be hot (it is better to run in early morning or after 6 pm).
It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Florence, so that you know what temperatures to expect. During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions.
In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general.
IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
We will provide you with bottled water during the tour. Also there are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot. Also, that would be the occasion to take a pic in front of one of Florence monuments!
HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
The running pace is set on our private tours by you. During our group tour we run a pace of about 6:30 min/km.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light. We can only store some small objects in our backpack (mobile phones, keys. etc,).
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
Yes, you can bring your camera/mobile phone and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide. We will also take pictures of you and we’ll send it to you by email.
DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
We offer our private tours hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be in the city centre (i.e. inside UNESCO World Heritage, the former city walls).
Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment or at the standard meeting point.
