I'm 23, I was born in Brazil but I grew up in Florence, Italy, and I recently moved to Vienna to attend university. I love History, History of Art, and Languages. I love being in contact with people from all around the world and getting to know their cultures. I am very proud of my origins and I enjoy talking about them with those who are interested in knowing them, that's why I enjoy making tours for people to show them the city where I grew up

About the tour

The tour starts from the church of Santa Maria Novella and goes through the most known landmarks of the city such as the Duomo, the and the Battistero. Then we will proceed by visiting Piazza della Republica, the symbolic statue of the Porcellino. Later we will go to Piazza della Signoria where we can see a copy of the David by Michelangelo and the wonderful sculptures under the Loggia dei Lanzi. Just by the side there's the Uffizzi Gallery, that leads us to Ponte Vecchio. We will proceed following the path of the history of Florence, finishing in front of Palazzo Pitti and the beatiful Giardino di Boboli.

You can either decide wether to go through the touristic streets among the people or if you want to use the small and pictoresque shortcuts of the city center of Florence.

-Please specify the language you prefer.

-Please schedule the tour before 10 pm of the previous day. I always send a "thank you for booking" message, if you don't receive it, it means I didn't see the booking.

-When the tour has been booked long before the day, I will send a confirmation message, to see if you are still coming. If I receive no response I will not come.

-If you are late I can wait 30 minutes, if you notify the delay I will wait for you.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Great Tour! Irina has great knowledge of the city of Florence and its history. Her explanations were clear, she answered questions, and made suggestion on where to go and when during my stay in Florence.

I recommend taking a tour with her to other visitors.

I truly enjoyed my walk with Irina! She was very nice and had many interesting stories about Firenze and the de’ Medici family to share.

Irina speaks five languages, so there was never a problem of understanding. I did the tour in Italian, even though I’m not a native speaker. It’s better than any Italian class!

I highly recommend booking with her!
