About Tour Guide Loredana A.

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!
