We’re a group of friends and authorized tour guides of Florence, although we’d prefer to introduce ourselves as storytellers! Explaining history as a TALE is part of our NAME, BRAND and SOUL. We’re in love with our hometown and we’d like to transmit it to you, through its many stories, funny anecdotes and curiosities, that will make you travel into the past and LIVE IT as if it was a tale, and you, the main character. After this tour, you’ll see Florence from a completely different standpoint, and you’ll be able to decipher its symbols, and read its architecture and statues by yourself, as if your wore Renaissance glasses.

About the Tour

This tour is a funny and easy-going introduction to Florence, perfect either for beginners and experts, from children to seniors. With us you’ll get a general overview of the city, passing by its main highlights, but you’ll also discover some thrilling stories, hidden gems and unknown fun-facts that will awake your curiosity and make you want to know the next chapter.

In an amusing walk by Florence’s wonders, you’ll understand why this city became the cradle of the Renaissance and changed our global history. You’ll also dive into the intrigues of one of the most powerful dynasties of all times, the Medici family, and you’ll realize their astounding impact, visible even in our daily lives. And many more! We’ll also give you useful information and tips about many different things: from how to avoid leather scams to how to choose the best gelato! Little by little everything you see in this town will make sense and you’ll feel and see Florence with the heart and eyes of a local.
We’ve also been tourists so we try to give you the kind of visit we’d like to find: friendly and professional, with a good balance between information and humour, so that you’ll learn and enjoy at the same time.

Slyvia is amazing!! She explains the history well and informative, and most importantly it was easy for me to understand. Best part is she can sing. I definitely enjoyed the whole trip with her as my guru.

Eine wunderbare Tour mit Silvia! Ich sehe Florenz und die Geschichte mit ganz anderen Augen und bin voll begeistert. Aber ich würde die Tour nie wieder mit meinem Kind machen. Der konnte den Informationen nicht folgen und als einziges Kind (unter 10) stand es auch nicht im Fokus. Nächstes mal einer von uns alleine und der Rest geht mit den Kids Eis essen :)
