Armando S.

Vinci, Florence, Italy

Hello, I am Armando, born and raised in Rome: one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

I graduated in the VI Liceo Artistico Statale of Rome, and I am an expert of Italian art, history and archaeology.
I started to work in the tourism industry in 1992 as a driver-guide providing multy-day driving tours all over Italy to individuals, families and small groups: my goal was to make travellers experience the fascinating landscapes and cities of Italy bringing to mind the impressions of famous Grand Tourists such as Stendhal, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Goethe and many others, in the mood of the travellers of that age.
In the year 2000 I earned my license to work as an official tour guide, and since then I have worked as a full time guide, showing the amazing sights to visitors from all over the world with humor and enthusiasm.
After raising three beautiful children, me and my wife decided to leave the busy life of Rome to join the quite of the Tuscan contryside and we moved to Vinci, birth place of the famous Leonardo da Vinci, about 25 miles West of Florence.
Since then I specialized in private tours in Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca and all over Tuscany, providing the travellers with a great summary of some twenty centuries of history most of the cities boasts, telling them about art and archaeology, past and the present, local culture and every day life, and how all is inextricably combined.

Whether it is your first visit, second or third time in Florence and Tuscany, I will be happy to create a customized itinerary based upon your interests to make you experience a unique, relaxing vacation.

The proposed itineraries are only examples of the many possible guided tours I can provide you. I invite you to contact me to design your own special guided private tour. Ciao!
