Hi, I'm Chiara, a tour guide specialized in the Tuscan and Florentine territory, together with other authorized guides we offer various free tours in Florence and Pisa. I was born in Sicily but I grew up in Florence and that's why I know the city better than a native Florentine ;-) So I will try to make you experience the visit in the most genuine way possible! I lived in Spain for several years and this is why I hope to be able to communicate with you with the right nuances, always trying to build up good energy, hoping to make you feel at home. If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me.
