About the Tour

Hi guys!

We are a small group of official and highly qualified guides! We will let you discover the "essence of Firenze" by entering its secret free garden, cloisters, yards, and by telling you about the main families and the best figures of that time.

We will deal with music, art, flowers, fragrances and the hidden symbols of the city. We will focus on its main characters of the city like Michelangelo, Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Leonardo and its less known inhabitants of the past like Caterina de Medici and its adventures and Maria Luisa and its fundamental rule in the Florentine history.

We will also give you tips related to the city: where to find the best gelato, the best trattoria, the best market, and the best view of the city!

The tour will start with a minimum of 2 participants. So, if you book for 1 pax, there will be the possibility the tour will not take place, but we will contact you the day before the tour in order to confirm or not.

Please, if you can not come to the tour, you are kindly required to let us know.

Our aim is to give you a deep experience of Florence in order to create an unforgettable tour! We can't wait to share our passion for art with you!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of the Entrance to the Medici Chapels! I will have a red umbrella :)

***english below*** La visite est axée sur le thème des symboles dans la ville, permettant de comprendre Florence à travers son histoire architecturale et culturelle. Très accessible, le tour dure deux heures et se fait en anglais. Notre très sympatique guide a également partagé ses bonnes adresses et donné quelques tips pour un séjour en Toscane réussi ! Nous remercions chaleureusement Camilla pour cette visite et lui souhaitons beaucoup de succès ! The tour is based on the theme of the symbols in the city, which allow to understand it's history through the architecture and the 6 of Florence.
