I graduated at U. C. L. London University in English and Italian Language and Literature and then the Institute of Linguists London before moving to Italy and becoming an authorised Tour Guide of Florence and the Province in 2008 (Membership No: 006/2009).
Being married to a local has given me the possibility to know the real city and its people by going off the beaten track to avoid mass tourism; in this way, clients can understand that art and history is also fun and enjoyable!
I have worked as a licensed Tour Guide in Florence for several years now and offer a wide variety of classic and alternative tours, along with custom made tours, to meet specific client requirements.
A visit to Florence should be an enriching cultural experience to be cherished!
A Recent Review of this guide
Corinna is like the longtime family friend who has lived in Florence for decades and knows its history intimately. She blended the history of the Medicis and the Austrian Habsburgs into descriptions of the artworks in the Palace. She did so in an easy-going and friendly manner, which added to the appeal. Although there is a significant amount of art in the Pitti Palace, Corinna instinctively knew the right amount to discuss without overwhelming us with information. We can't recommend her enough!
