Murder & Mystery Florence Evening Walking Tour

Dive into the dark, medieval past of Florence on our semi-private evening walking tour.

Explore the charming yet little-known Oltrarno district on our guided evening walk. We’ll take you through centuries of intrigue and down ancient cobblestone streets. To famous Renaissance palaces bristling with stories of crime and punishment. To breaktaking riverside views of the Ponte Vecchio. And into the sordid story of the bitter and bloody feud that divided Florence for centuries.

Black arts

Begin in Piazza Davanzati, in front of our very own office. Learn about the ‘Black Art of Poisoning’ used in Renaissance Florence. Plus, we’ll tell you about the nefarious branch of chemistry endorsed by Cosimo I and the Medici.

Palace intrigue

Our evening walk will take you on a whirlwind of history. Journey back in time to the eleventh and twelfth centuries and to life in the Middle Ages. Learn how adept the Medici family was at court intrigue and murder. Hear stories of palace rumors, court lovers and Romeo and Juliet style trysts. Visit the artisan districts and workshops that are the same since the Renaissance. See old Florence’s favorite medieval flagellation spot.

Famous faces

 We’ll tell you the influential names and faces that changed history. Some names you’ll be sure to recognize. We’ll tell you about Dante Alighieri and his exile by the Pope. About Michelangelo’s dark mast. About the cunning mastermind that was Machiavelli (you’ll know him as the author of the The Prince!).

Evening views

We’ll do all this, and more, while showing you some of Florence’s most stunning views. Our evening walk will take you around Florence in the golden hours before sunset. Tour ends with an elegant cocktail on a rooftop terrace. There, you can enjoy a glass of red or a classic Negroni while overlooking one of Oltrarno’s most famous Piazzas.

    Martin Timmerman

    When we look for walking tours we don’t look for tours of the big sights, but want to experience the back streets and little known neighborhoods. The Murder & Msytery: Evening Walk provided that experience. Our tour guide was familiar with the Oltarno District, showed us artists at work, unique views and restaurants and told us stories of the neighborhood. We finished with tasting not only wine, but olive oil and balsamic as well. It was a wonderful glimpse of back street Florence.

    Our tour provided some excellent insights into the other side of the river. The tour guide gave us some excellent recommendations for restaurants and provided some very in depth details of life in the middle ages. The tour had the most instructive wine tasting of our trip.
