Hi there! My name is Lorenzo I'm 28 years old and I'm love with LIFE! I've been living in Florence for a couple of years now and this city literally stole my heart! I moved here to study acting at "Accademia dell'Oltrarno", and this gave me the opportunity to discover the magic and the stories of this ancient area situated in the "other side of the river". I would like to share this knowledge, and meet new people to show them the real good things of this beautiful city.

Lorenzo did not show up and never responded to my msg about it. I booked the tour and even received a msg from him with tips about bringing water (maybe this was automated?), but he never showed up. 5 minutes past 2pm I msged him and am yet to get a response one day later. It was a holiday on Aug 16, but he should not have had this day as an option. Wasted my time!

Lorenzo was very easy to spot from the start, he's very punctual.

We immediately had an easy contact with him, he is very friendly and likable. As there were only two of us (my spouse and I), Lorenzo made a personalized visit with our questions and recommendations in relation to our tastes.

We had a beautiful exchange about Florence's past and the link between the past and the present, it is obvious that Lorenzo likes to pass on his knowledge to visitors.

We highly recommend him!

Almost 2 weeks have passed and the GuruWalk with Lorenzo was the experience that has remained with me the most in recent days. Lorenzo is very knowledgeable and surely knows how to entertain people. You cannot fail to be fascinated by him and by the beautiful Oltrarno that shows you. Thanks for the unforgettable afternoon.
