After traveling the world and visiting many beautiful cities, I settled back here in Florence and have never looked back. . .
Whether it's the awe-inspiring architecture, the mesmerizing art or the romantic streets full of wonder, Florence has a way of putting you under its spell!
I have worked as a Guide for 20 years, now I' m passionate about sharing my experience with you, creating a unique itinerary to suit every one of your dreams!
And of course, I can guarantee you the VIP service so hard to find in Florence. . .
The city is beautiful, true, but sometimes is difficult to enjoy if you travel by yourself or with a guide that is not " local".
As I have lived in Florence for so many years and believe It's the most beautiful city on earth I welcome you to come and immerse yourself in its Magic. . .
Here I placed some itineraries for you, but of course, I will be glad to tailor your tour as per your request.
And I will be glad to introduce you to the city, to the real one! That is why is so good to have a private guide and a real local one, to visit a city is like to create a new perfume. . . a new bouquet.
I have also worked as a Teacher at the Lorenzo de Medici Art School in Florence, and so I learned how to keep in contact with American young students. . . and that is for all " young " people of every age, including me of course. . . Art is fun! Even classical music, Opera is a magic moment in life. . . so I believe no trip to Italy is complete without a Tour with a Local Guide, let's yourself be "guided" and enjoy without a single worry,
Here I created some itineraries that I think are eligible, but of course, I can make any changes or arrangements to suit your personal preferences.
A Recent Review of this guide
Maria was a fantastic guide. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she is also a great personality! Her stories were wonderful and brought Florentine history and art alive during our very brief tour. She was flexible and very helpful as we were delayed by traffic and needed to drop luggage and buy train tickets before we started our tour. All in all, a delightful tour that kept us and our 4 teenage grandchildren engaged. Thank you, Maria!
