Maria Grazia B.

Florence, Tuscany, Italy

Ciao! I am Maria Grazia, your Local Guide in Florence, but my friends just call me MG.

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 so well prepared for the day and her driver was great (forget her name). They made a great team! Maria and I communicated early about my wife and I having our 7 year old daughter and she brought a great activity that tied in with many of the locations we were visiting! Absolutely fantastic and so nice of her to do so my wife and I could enjoy the experience of Tuscany and Florence (I'm so jealous that Italians get to live in Tuscany!). Maria is highly recommended!!!
