Guide Bio

I am a professional private sightseeing tour guide of Florence. I am a true Florentine as well. I was born in this wonderful city and I never get tired to spread the love for Florence around!

I started leading tours in 2014 after graduating in Art History from the University of Florence and after a further training program for tourist guides. From my studies, I grew a fascination with the history of Renaissance and I enjoy bringing to life the protagonists of that time such as Lorenzo the Magnificent, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Galileo.

I create and organize individual tours according to the interests and the needs of every single guest. I can take you on a walking tour of Florence telling the stories behind the sights or show you the works of art in the galleries, introducing the artists who shaped our idea of beauty. If your tastes are more specific or you’ve seen it all before, I’ll help you make new discoveries, the hidden treasures of the city.

    I booked a tour with Valentina this year. She is a native of Florence, a graduate in Art History and very enthusiastic about her city and its art treasures. Her English is wonderful. She will create a tour depending on your specific interests. Be brave. Go somewhere other than the Uffizzi. But you certainly won’t suffer if you decide to go there with her.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
