Enjoy a bit of fitness and fun while on vacation
Hit the streets of Florence in the early morning with your very own personal trainer!
Be it a single traveler or private group, this fit and fun tour is a great way to keep in shape in Florence whilst also exploring the city when the streets are less crowded, taking in the spectacular art and views of the Renaissance city.
Discovering the historic city center with a professional and licensed personal trainer who speaks excellent English (even whilst running!) means savoring the beauty of historic Florence while getting in your daily exercise on a jog through a selection of some of the must-see sites within the historic city center and beyond.
In addition to a bevy of picturesque piazzas and splendid streets of the city, this running tour passes along the Arno river, its waters glimmering with the early-morning light. Then, take the winding road leading to the spectacular Piazzale Michelangelo to admire the historic cityscape cradled within the Tuscan hills adorned with quaint hilltop towns and lush greenery in the surrounds.
Along the way, the private running guide will reveal tidbits of the history of these historic sites, enriching the jog even more. See the famous sculptures and artworks that embellish the city whilst hearing about the amazing talent and curious details behind their creation for the perfect early-morning run in Florence.
This 2-hour private running tour sets out at 7:00 or 8:00 am (with alternative starts times upon request), to be coordinated in advance.
The jogging itinerary covers some of Florence’s most spectacular and historic monuments of the historical city including the Ponte Vecchio (the ‘Old Bridge’) along with some of Florence’s most stunning squares including Piazza Ferrucci, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Signoria, Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza Duomo right up to the Piazzale Michelangelo for stunning views over the city.
Time (and energy!) permitting, the running tour guide can also lead the way to Palazzo Pitti to see what was once the palace of the ruling Medici family.
This being an outdoor tour, no entries to any monuments are included. This tour runs rain or shine so be sure to wear rain gear during inclement weather. Running shoes and appropriate clothing are essential. No refunds will be given for missed tours. If guests arrive late or need to go at a slower pace, the tour itinerary can be adapted to the remaining time available.
The guide can point out the free water fountains around the city for rehydrating without having to carry a water bottle. The guide can also point out a great place to grab a coffee and well-earned pastry after the tour so bringing along some cash is advised.
