Hi, I am an American living in Florence. I moved to Italy as a grad student for a Master's Degree in Art History, ...and I've been here now for over 20 years. What's kept me here is my passion for art and the beauty of the city's incredible sights. I love showing visitors all the wondrous places around town and telling fascinating tales about Florence's history, culture, and art. I like to think of those who follow my guided tours as inquisitive travelers, and not simply tourists. I bring into my tours my years of experience as a guide as well as my experience as an instructor of Art History. A tour must be engaging, entertaining, and informative at the same time to really spark interest. Most times it is the stories behind the works and the anecdotes that make the tour memorable. So join me for an unforgettable Florence experience and leave the heavy guide books at home. Let me lead the way to all the great sites and sights! Check out my tours and my blog posts at the bottom of the page for some tour ideas. I can customize tours and itineraries to best suit your interests. Feel free to contact me so I can design a tour or organize a shore excursion from Livorno to Florence just for you. Hope to see you soon in Florence!

I started riding by chance when I was about 20, since then I never stopped and enjoyed show jumping, cross country and the country trail riding with my horses. Today my hobby has become my life and I share my experience and my emotions on horseback with my guests and in the beauty, the history and the flavors of the rolling hills of Tuscany in countryside surrounding Florence.

Hello! I have been living IN Italy since 5 years and have some years of experience in the sphere of communication and accommodation (in Rome and Brussels). Lately I have decided to start my own tours as a communication assistant and organisator. Together with me works my husband and a professional Italian guide. I speak 4 languages and have strong organization skills, this is why I believe I could provide a high quality support to travelers.

Florence Tour Reviews

Great historical, architectural and art knowledge.

We had an excellent walking tour. She had a great knowledge of the city, the architecture and the museums. She gave great perspective of how to identify who made what and how facades were remodeled based on the period. Our tour ended at the Accademia. We had an easy time getting in for our time slot. Be sure to purchase your tickets separately in advance of your trip!

Dear Mr. Joe, It was a pleasure to meet you. I am really happy you enjoyed the tour and I thank you with all my heart for the review you gave. All the best. Mila

Thank you for your attention and interest. It was a pleasure!

Extremely knowledgable and flexible specialist in Florence and Tuscany

I would recommend Manolis to any American desiring to get the most out of a trip to Florence and Tuscany. He is a native English speaker, so no accent, but has lived and studied in Florence for many years. We wanted to get out of Florence for a few days, and Manolis not only designed a tour, but found us a driver who was almost as wonderful as he. He was a wonderful leader to our family group, which included young adults visiting for the first time. Prior to our visit, he worked extra hard to recommend hotels and thought about how the tours would go. Our 3 days included a half-day tour of the Uffizi which he personally guided and made the museum reservations for us. We spent an additional two days visiting cities outside Florence, including Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano. He recommended a few additions which turned out to be the highlight of our tour. I would work with him again in a minute.

Thank you for your kind appreciation. It was a pleasure for me to be your guide. I’m lucky you sought me and I’m privileged to be showing such lovely places. Stay safe.
