Francesca D.

Florence, FI, Italy

Buongiorno a tutti! I'm Francesca, a Licensed Tourist Guide and Tour Director in Tuscany with a long experience in tourism.

Born "Under the Tuscan Sun" I'm proud to offer the best available service to groups and single travelers planning to visit this extraordinary region and its cities. Thanks to almost 25 years working in tourism I can guarantee the right service for every kind of travel, and can offer different solutions for any request (groups, families, schools. . . )

It's a big pleasure and privilege to share Tuscany with those wishing to experience its history, beauty, traditions, curiosity, cooking, wines. . .

Someone said "When in Rome do as the Romans do". . . I like to say "When in Tuscany do as Tuscans do"! My goal? Let my customers feel like Tuscans in Tuscany!

Welcome to Tuscany, Welcome to Wonderland!

A PRESTO!

Francesca

A Recent Review of this guide

We were a group of 5, my husband and I and 3 adult grandchildren, 24 22, and 20. Two of them had taken art history courses while spending a summer a Florence.They both said that our 3 hours with her taught them more than what they learned in the courses they took .She is not only extremely knowledgeable but presents the information organized in such a ways that it is not only fun, but paints a complete picture. She was delightful and we felt very lucky to have had our 3 hours with her.
