TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

A running tour that passes Florence’s most beautiful and famous squares and architectural pearls.

Starting from the former center of the roman “Florentia” during this running tour you will pass though the medieval heart of the town and see Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizzi, Ponte Vecchio, some hidden corners and surprising spots like the old city walls. The Basilica of Santa Croce will impress you with its magnificent front while the Ponte Vecchio will bring you over the Arno. Runners will be able to view the small gold shops that are still today located on the bridge. On this running tour, we will also pass by the world famous Uffizzi Museum that is renowned for its art collections. You’ll learn some histories and jokes about the town that only real Florentine people know, so this tour will be not only made of history and wonder but also of sweat and fun! While we run, we will tell you some secret stories about the ancient buildings, like the famous dome of Santa Maria del Fiore by Filippo Brunnelleschi, and the ancient families, the Medici, the Pitti and many others from the so called “cradle of Renaissance”.

This running tours is a dive into history and beauty suitable for every kind of runner, and will be a nice group experience that you’ll bring back home as a special memory.

  • 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.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
