I am Manuel and Florence is my hometown. I am a licensed tour guide but I would like to 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

We took part in Manuels tour on Sunday afternoon. Was a very interesting and eye opening tour, we were taken on a journey through time and explored parts of Florence which we we otherwise would not have noticed. Recommend for any one who would like to get a true feel for this fascinating city and it’s rich history.

Manuel was very nice, and his English was great and he took us to Nice non touristic spots. He knew the history of the city really well and gave us tips afterwards for lunch, pizza, and also really handy museum tips. He was funny and made a really nice atmosphere for the 2h the the tour lasted.
