Welcome to our list of the top free things to do in Florence, Italy!
Florence is a walking town, and we’ve spent many days and nights exploring forgotten alleyways, peering into cafes, and concocting stories about what happened behind closed gates and tall walls. We’re also always on the lookout for free museums, haunted gravesites, and Tuscan hikes to strike from our bucket lists.
These activities don’t cost a thing – except for the 2-euro gelato or birra we reward ourselves with at the end of a long excursion. Plus, we experience much more of the city than we would just sticking to a standard script. Our wanderings inspired us to create this resource to help students and budget-minded visitors discover Florence (and Italy!) without reaching deep into their pockets.
Which brings us to our latest adventure – sharing our favorite walks, “crawls,” and places with you! We’re happy to have you with us.
If you’re new here, we recommend this roundup to help you get started. Have any questions? Just ask us in the comments.
