What you can expect

If you want to truly know Florence, all you gotta do is cross to the other side of the river! Immerse yourself in the traditional life of Florence and step away from the city center and outside the touristy crowds.

Cross with me to the other side where I'll take you to see local artisans, grocery stores, terrace cafes and local markets, and in all of these places, you will be welcomed with a warm smile!

Admire some of the most important art masterpieces like the “Deposition“ of Pontormo or the wood cross of Michelangelo. Discover hidden corners and squares as you stroll around and spot Rennasaince buildings full of history and cozy churches, that match perfectly with the easy going and friendly life of the quarter.

To make it even better, included is a wine tasting and ice cream stop that will make your taste buds jump from joy! This is a 5 senses experience that will delight your mind, your heart and your palate. And to kick it up a notch, I can personalize it in any way you want. Let me know how I can help!
