The guided tour was done in English and we were counting on the audio guide in French to help us. The application did not work, it was complicated to download it and we were not able to benefit from the audio guide over 2 days as mentioned in the description of the outing.

Nice educational tour along the highlights of Florence. You will be given headphones so that you can understand the guide well.
