Emma M.

Florence, Tuscany, Italy

Dear Traveller, Since when I was a teenager my true passion has been travelling abroad.

That's the reason why I like so much people who invest time and economic resources in travelling to expand their mental horizons and meeting people from other part of the world.

When I was a child I used to live in Paris but I'm a native Florentine.
While completing my academic background I've spent one year in London and since then I never stopped travelling as tour menager in Egypt, Libia, Tunisia, Jordan, France, Turkey, Greece and United States.

In 1992 I won the public contests to be Licensed Guide in Florence / Siena and I fell in love with my job, because being a guide is being myself: a lifetime studying and discovering.

My guests say my special gift is to be able in sharing my passion for Art, Economic History and hidden Beauties of Siena and Florence, maximising their time during their stay.

Let me introduce you to Florence and Siena unique harmony and flavour: their museums, Medici's residences, churches, home made ice creams and artisanal workshops, still able in creating true masterpieces.

The tours I'm listing here are just samples, the ones that I think are eligible but,
Since everyone of us is different, It will be my pleasure to fully customised the tour to your pace, interest and expectations, for a true VIP service.

For Uffizi and Accademia museums I can book fast track tickets without handling fees as you will be able to pay those extras directly on the spot.

*On request I can hire a private driver/luxury and air-conditioned van, the easiest way to travel from Florence to Siena and to discover their hidden beauties.

*For Cruise visitors I can arrange "VIP treatment" shore excursions including a luxury air conditioned car or minivan with a professional driver (with pick up and drop off at your ship).

I wish you a wonderful time in Florence and Siena,

Emma

A Recent Review of this guide

Emma was an excellent tour guide. She met us at the train station in Siena and spent several hours taking us around her hometown explaining its rich history and culture. It was quickly apparent that Emma wanted to ensure our enjoyment on the tour and tailored her narration accordingly. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide in Siena or in any of the other regions in Tuscany that she guides.
