Cristina M.

Florence, Tuscany, Italy

Dear Traveler, I am Cristina, a Licensed Florence and its Province Tour Guide and Tour Leader.

I love to share my passion for the Art, the History, the Tradition and Beauty of Florence, the city where I was born.

I will take you visiting the past and the present of Florence, among suggestions and memories, in search of enchantment and wonder.

I was just a child and I still remember the visits in the suggestive Cathedral of Florence with my grandmother, the elegance of its Dome, the ice-cream eaten in the garden of the San Lorenzo Church, the scent in the antique Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella.

I studied Art and Foreign Languages at the University in Florence and Venice, later I was sale's manager assistant by the Raffaello Romanelli Art Gallery and director by Baldi Srl Art Gallery in Florence, creating together with the customers unique pieces made of bronze, marble, semiprecious stones, realized on commission, using the same processes of the Renaissance artisans and artists.

Let me introduce you Florence, its originality, beauty, harmony, discovering together the Medici's residences, the symbols, the legends of this magic town, its museums, churches, a town where artisans are still creating masterpieces of jewellery, leather, marble, mosaic, high fashion.

In addition I live in the Chianti area, very close to Florence, famous for its landscape with olive grooves and vineyards, pointed out by old castles, silent Abbeys so rich of works of art. I can organize a tour among the most charming villages, where you can experience a day in the real Tuscan country side.

I love cooking and eating, and if you like, I can suggest you the best places where to eat and taste typical Tuscan recipes, wine and olive oil.

I can customize your tour upon request, everyone of us is different and has different expectations!
I would like to let you fall in love with Florence like I am and make sure you keep fond memories of the most beautiful city of Italy!

I am waiting for you, with my warmest regards,
your local Florence guide Cristina
