Hi there! I'm Ivana, a licensed tour guide and licensed tour leader.
I was born and raised in Italy, lived in Beijing for a few months as a student and travelled Europe. I studied languages and art history and I'm passionate about photography and music (and traveling of course).
I feel very lucky to live and work here in Florence, it's definitely a cozy city where you can have great food, great wine, and where you can have a great time all year round. Every corner, church, building of the city is so inspiring to me, and the surroundings (like Tuscany countryside and all the small towns around Florence) are spectacular as well.
I'll be your local friend in Florence, my tours are not only about the history, dates and works of art; what I really like is to show the authentic side of the city. We'll try to go back to the past with our imagination, we will discover legends, some gossip of the past and hidden treasures.
Please, before booking on this website, send me an email to check my availability and remember that you can customize the tour according to your preferences.
My private guided tours in Museums and/or a walking tour will introduce you to the cultural heritage of Florence. Take a tour and make the best of your stay in Florence!
The cost is negotiable according to the number of visitors, content and length of the tour. See you soon!
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Ivanna was great. Her tour guided us through history and the many masterpieces in the Uffizi. She also did a walking tour of the city and gave great recommendations for lunch and dinner. It was just what we were looking for. I'd highly recommend using her as a guide to fabulous Firenze!
