    Florence Hill Run

    Amazing run with Lapo. Ran through downtown area, around the Arno River and up into the mountains. The rural area was beautiful and very peaceful. It was nice to learn about the Florence history and culture while running. Amazing tour and would recommend to my friends.

    Amazing run around Florence

    Alice

    Lapo was the most amazing guide! He knew all the history of Florence including fun interesting facts. Also running around Florence and the surrounding hills was magnificent and I got to see city life and a bit of country life as well. Highly recommend Lapo and his running tour to anyone visiting Florence. It’s a definite must do!

    Florence Hills!

    Eve

    This run was by far the best part of my trip to Florence. Lapo was an amazing guide and I was able to see beautiful areas that I would have never made it to on my own. I can’t recommend Lapo and Go Running Tours enough for such an amazing experience. You won’t regret it!!

    Hill session! 😊

    Anja

    If you miss your hill sessions while visiting Florence, this is the run for you! 😅 It takes you up and down, but also – just a few minutes from the city – into the very quiet country side. This is my second GoRunning run with Lapo when visiting Florence. He is a great guy and a great guide!

    Great Florence experience

    Dieter

    I did the 2 hour hill tour. Lapo was a great guide, he explained the main downtown sites and the surrounding area almost constantly, and when we were not talking history or sights, we were talking life experiences in our different cultures. I got to get out of the city and within minutes, saw the countryside and daily living. The pace was perfect. Water, t-shirt (get two sizes larger than US size), the pictures that Lapo took and his post-round review and recommendations for Florence completed a perfect activity and one of the most memorable activities of my Florence vacation.
