Guide profile:

Hi! I am a 100% Florentine lady and a licensed guide in the city where I was born. I arrange customized tours focused on art, history or food and wine and...whatever could be of your interest. I have been working for 10 years as a holiday and event planner in Italy. That's why I like to arrange itineraries going out of the usual touristy paths in order to avoid crowds and give you a insider's view of the city based on my experience and knowledge. Besides that, I also offer the classical tour of the highlights helping people to make the most of the city and take home a wonderful memory also in case of short stays.

I can manage groups as well as families with kids, being a mother of two children I know when kids' attention is faltering and I like to make jokes or breaks for ice cream in order to keep an easy pace for everybody! On the other hand I am flexible and I am open to changes of itinerary when I see that someone is particularly interested in some topics. I don't work with the stopwatch and I love sharing my passion for Florence with you!

I look forward to meeting you in Florence!!!

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

I like to customize as much as possible my itineraries, I think that everybody has different and specific interests and personalities. A sample iitnerary for those who are visiting Florence for the first time includes the highlights of the historical center as the Cathedral with the outstanding Dome by Brunelleschi, the Baptistry, Piazza Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio from outside, the Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Repubblicam the ancient Roman Forum and heart of the city. Usually the visit to one of the most famous museums is requested: the Uffizi Gallery which offer an excursus of the painting from Giotto through the Renaissance with Masaccio, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. An alternative could be the Accademia museum, which holds the original David by Michelangelo and many other wonderful works of art. If this is a full day tour I usually propose different places to visit, this depends on the persons who are with me. It could be a shopping tour in the area of the artisans in Florence, it could be something related to food or we could continue visiting a church for example San Lorenzo and the Medici Chapels, Santo Spirito, the Boboli gardens...there so much choice of beutiful places in Florence that we will not surely get bored!
