History brought to life through stories and scavenger hunts around the city with a museum.


A tour for families with children of all ages and teens. Worried about keeping kids entertained in a city in the summertime? Fear no more. . . let me know your children's ages and interests and let me guide you through the city.
It's a private tour so we can liaise and decide on what interests them more.

I am a great storyteller and Florence has a great deal of history & so many stories to reveal. Murders and mysteries, ghosts. Discover the fierce jealousy between Michelangelo and Leonardo.
Learning is great fun! Hunt out symbols and coats of arms on buildings whilst hearing tales from the past.
Let's visit the Davanzati Palace, home of a textile merchant & see what life was really like in the 1400s.
Alternatively a visit to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's David or another museum. (The Uffizi gallery for example). Both are closed Mondays.

This is a customized tour so feel free to make suggestions.
A ride on the carousel for the younger kids and the best ice cream in town for everyone.
