The Tours

These are some of my pre-planned tours that are my specialty. A lot of these tours involve a lot of walking, but accommodations can be made and cafè breaks are on me.

Pick a plan, put on your walking shoes, and let’s go!

 

 

Oltrarno: The Other Side of Florence

 

Where we start

We start right out front of Palazzo Pitti by the bank.

 

 
 

After a brief introduction of the history of Florence and the “royal” Medici family, I will take you by workshops, markets, antiques, little churches and quiet squares without losing sight of the great artists of the Renaissance and their masterpieces. Every stop will give us the opportunity to talk about what makes the Oltrarno such peculiar part of Florence. I will reveal to you hidden secrets and anecdotes as well as insight how those in Oltrarno live their lives now.
