I have just celebrated my 90th birthday and I have been enjoying this experience with the help of my daughter Laura for two years. I am so happy to have shared my stories, memories and places with you. It has been amazing, thank you all! Now I need to take a break and hope to be able to start to join you again spring/summer 2020. Laura has been wonderful to make my personal memories and events come back to life and I am glad she will keep running the tour on her own. Laura will walk with you along the alleys and places of my and her childhood in the heart of Florence, revealing my personal and Florence historical and cultural anecdotes, events and curiosities as only a true local can do. You will have access to some private and secret spaces and a scented experience is also waiting for you... You will also stop at a place next to our home where you will discover a real gem that not even most florentines know. At the end of the walk, you will enjoy our favorite typical Florentine appetizers, soup and Chianti Classico wine at one of our most loved trattorias.
I was born and raised in the heart of Florence at the beginning of the last Century. My family and I have been living in a historic listed building between Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce for generations and I have always shared my deep love for my city and its history and anecdotes, my memories, our tradition and local food with my family, my grandchildren and my daughter Laura who will join you in this experience. I am the oldest resident of the neighborhood and I'm called the 'Mayor of the district'. We are looking forward to sharing our love for Florence and good food with you!
