Hi! I'm Christine from Germany and I came to Lyon by accident three years ago and fell in love with this city straight away. Since then I've been spending the winters here and I'd like to do the job as a city guide, which I work in Florence (that's where I currently live) and love it here as well. Since I am so enthusiastic about both cities, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion for it with you. I hope to see you on one of my tours. :)

Tour description

Florence is famous for its art works which you can find everywhere in the city - outside in its streets and inside in its churches and museums. Artists as Michelangelo, Botticelli and Da Vinci lived and worked here and influenced the city with their art. All this happened about 500 years ago. But what's going on nowadays in the city? Are there no artists anymore? In this tour you'll discover Florence from a different perspective, you'll find out a lot about its contemporary artists, especially the Street Artists of Florence. Especially the "other side" of the river, called "Oltrarno", is full of amazing squares, artisan shops, artist workshops, bars and cafes. So you can find locals hanging out there, enjoying their coffee in Santo Spirito and eating paninos (sandwiches). At the end of the tour we'll pass by some artist workshops. If we are lucky, we can see them working on their next project. You will see in this tour different spots in the area " Oltrarno". We are walking through small streets full with artistic suprises and we'll end our tour in San Niccolo where you can find workshops of some of the Street Artists.

Man merkt Christine Ihre Begeisterung für Streetart und Florenz an. Sehr spannende und unterhaltsame Tour. Wir hatten bereits die allgemeine Florenz Tour mit ihr gemacht - auch sehr, sehr gut! Besondere Empfehlung: Christine macht auch individuelle Führungen z.B. in der Academia (David Statue u.v.m.). Viel Hintergrundwissen, guter allgemeiner Überblick über das Museum. Fragt sie einfach an :) Von uns volle Empfehlung!
