Barbara L.

Firenze, Italy

Ciao! My name is Barbara, I am 33, Italian 100% born and raised in Florence!

In a nutshell, I am a globe-trotter for fun, a painter for a hobby, an art, animal and nature lover for a good karma and tour guide as a lifestyle.

In 2007 I graduated in Business and Hotel Management which turned to be very useful when my parents lost their job 5 years ago and I transformed a family apartment into the bed & breakfast FLO :)
I have been working for about 10 years as a tour leader, leading groups of travellers throughout Italy for two weeks, learning and discovering the beauties of my country and especially the region of Tuscany, which is my favourite.

In 2012 after a year of private school I became an official local guide of Florence and started giving private tours in the city and its numerous museums.

During the off season, in winter, you might find me abroad travelling to a warm place or enjoying the Dolce Vita in the Tuscan countryside with my boyfriend, who is a beekeeper and a wonderful chef . . . so why don't you come to visit me for a cooking class?

I offer custom tours for English, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking travellers for groups and families with children too. My job is to take care of you and show you the secrets and highlight of this magnificent city so check my tours out or contact me!

A Recent Review of this guide

Barbara was great. We connected right on time and she quickly navigated the tickets and entry process for us. Her approach to the Galleria was well organized and she provided quite a lot of interesting information as we viewed the art. As an artist herself, she could convey a real context for what we were seeing. She added a great deal to our visit.
