About the guru Vincenzo

My name is Vincenzo, I live in the wonderful Mugello, at the gates of the magnificent city of Florence, the city where I conducted my studies, and that I fell in love with since I was very young. Because Florence is not a city like the others. I have always been passionate about history, and Florence, like the whole of Tuscany, is a gateway to the past, thanks to its monuments, the works preserved in its museums, its traditions, the food and the people who live there. Florence, and Tuscany, are unique. My other great passion is nature, which I respect and protect, because nature, as well as a city, or a museum, has a lot to tell. In fact, life in the city depends completely on what nature offers, and to appreciate it at its best and protect it, we must know it. These passions prompted me to become an environmental guide first, and then a tourist guide, to be able to transmit them to those visiting Tusany, and also to those who live here, in the most genuine and ecological way possible, walking. Walking is the most natural way to move. Walking allows us to observe details that could escape our eyes if we used a different transportation. Walking allows us to stop when and where we want.

About the tour

Have you ever seen a city from above at night? Of course you have. Every city is certainly very beautiful thanks to the shows that the lights create by drawing the contours of the buildings and making their colors and shapes stand out.

Florence wins over all. Thanks to its medieval buildings that the great artists have left us, the shapes and colors of Florence illuminated at night are unique. A great contribution is given by the Arno, that river that has always been luck and misfortune for the city.

I therefore propose a visit to that Florence that at night becomes a real postcard. Starting from the famous Ponte Vecchio, crossing the houses of ancient noble families now extinct, to get to Piazzale Michelangelo first, and to the church of San Miniato then, which represents the highest point from which we will observe the city.

Once we're done, we can go to dinner, or for a drink, with a smile on our lips.

Vincenco war eine reine Enzyklppädie, er hat unglaublich viel Wissen, das er in bestem Englisch vermittelt. Auf jeden Fall liegt der Schwerpunkt auf der Geschichte Florenz. Nach knapp 3 Stunden zuhören waren wir gut informiert, aber auch erschöpft. Empfehlenswert für jeden, der in die Geschichte eintauchen möchte.

Vincenzo is a walking encyclopedia! Once he starts talking, he won't stop. He has a lot of knowledge of the history of the city and tells about his city in a very enthusiastic way. If you are looking for an inspirational walk through Florence, Vincenzo is your man!

El tour fue muy bueno en cuanto a la ruta y la historia, pero Vicenzo es un poco imponente y no genera confianza para hablar abiertamente sobre asuntos relacionados con lugares o ciudades aledañas. En mi opinión personal no evidenció comprensión y respeto por la diferencia de criterio.

Response from Vincenzo:

Muchísimas gracias por tu reseña Alexandra y sobretodo por tu sinceridad. Cada opinión es importante y seguramente voy a trabajar sobre este aspecto.
