I'm 22, 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 Torre di Giotto 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 with the visit 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 6 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 20-25 minutes, after that I am leaving.
