I am Manuel and Florence is my hometown. I am a licensed tour guide but I would like be considered a storyteller. I love to show the beauty of my city to the people who visit Florence every day. I will guide you through the streets and the alleys of the city with my passion and with the perspective of a local to let you get a unique and unforgettable experience. The Renaissance will be alive for you in the stories, the legends, the buildings.

About the tour

This tour is a great introduction to the city for both first-timers as well as returners. It covers the main attractions of the city and also the hidden gems that are well and truly "off the beaten track" and gives you facts you wouldn't know or notice walking around by yourself.

While you 'll be led through the city you will be even accompanied through three centuries full of thrilling stories about the Medici family who influenced Florence’s history; little by little the Renaissance will become alive in front of you.

You will not be involved in a boring, neutral lecture, but in a pleasant stroll through the center of Florence, taking in everything as it comes but also learning plenty about the history of the city in a friendly and easy-going atmosphere.

This tour is about Florence, naturally, but it is also about you and what you would like to get from a guided tour to let you get a unique and unforgettable experience.

Meeting point

How to find me: The meeting point is in front of the façade of SAN LORENZO church (main entrance, not the entrance of the Medici chapels) next to the marble statue of Giovanni de' Medici who is sitting on a small throne. Look for a small red flag.
Tour duration: 1 hour, 45 minutes

This is the best tour I have taken in my trip to Europe so far (and I have been visiting 7 cities so far). Manuel is really passionate about history and loves what he does. That is the reason why the tour was so captivating. He even gave us a lot of tips to do and not do in Florence and his recommendations were excellent choices.

Thank you very much, Manuel!
