Runner on the ground - LAPO and his team

20+ years of running

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 through 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. The tour duration is approx one hour.

    What a great experience. This was but 13th time in Florence, and I learned so much new information (and got in a great run) from Lapo and his son. Definitely recommend.

    Lapo gave a great tour. He knows his history. I particularly enjoyed hearing his persective as an architect. Florence is fun to run in. It’s surprising how many streets are pedestrian friendly.

    A really nice run around the city centre. Lapo helped me to find the right run that I was looking for, and Isabella was super welcoming and fun (and a veteran of many marathon runs).

    Be prepared for an early start!
