Dive into the history and art of Florence after most tourist crowds are gone. Situate the famous monuments in history, learn about the rise and fall of the Florentine republic, the rivalry between Michelangelo and Leonardo, the notorious Medici clan, the best places to eat and shop, local customs of past and present. Hear a juicy account of a Medieval lawsuit and review gossip from the Renaissance. We discover details only visible at night, hidden gems to return to the following morning, and the best gelato in town! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS OR ANOTHER WALKING/MUSEUM TOUR ON A DATE OR TIME DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE LISTED PLEASE CONTACT ME AND WE'LL WORK IT OUT! Please note that for walks that are booked by one guest only, the length of this experience is abbreviated to one hour (gelato still included!)
Brilliant licensed art and history guide, PhD, with a decade experience, I enjoy sharing my love for Florence with others. Pleasure in life must be holistic - and Italy is an ideal country for this. My tours of Florence are outstanding - my experiences of Tuscany and the Cinque Terre sublime - and my Sicily is breathtaking. I'm driven by passion for local Italy, my home over the past 19 years. Here, I studied in Rome and Florence, worked in Parma, the Cinque Terre and Tuscany, and of course fell in love - in Sicily. It's this pleasure, careful research and local knowledge that I share on tour.
Gelato per tutti!
