Elena C.

Firenze, FI, Italy

Hi! I am a 100% Florentine lady and a licensed guide in Florence.

I arrange customized tours focused on art, history, food and wine and. . . whatever could be of your interest. I have been working for 10 years as a holiday and event planner in Italy, mostly for North American clients who are coming to visit our wonderful country. In all these years I developed an strong experience in arranging every type of activity in my region and in solving all the logistical problems of travelling to Italy.

I like to arrange customized itineraries going out of the usual touristy paths in order to avoid crowds and give you a insider's view of Florence based on my experience and knowledge. Besides that, I also offer the classical tour of the highlights helping people to make the most of the city and take home wonderful memories in case of short stays.

I love working with families and kids, it's amazing how many things I can learn from them!!! They notice unusual things that surprise me each time and it's nice to spend time with them and see how surprised they are when they see something new.

I look forward to meeting you in Florence!!! A PRESTO!
