Tour guide of Florence

Hello everyone!! My name is Martina Guadagno and I am a professional Tour Guide and Personal Shopper in English and Chinese languages.

As your Tour Guide, my job is to assist you so that you will be able to admire the masterpieces that Florence has to offer; cradle of Italian Renaissance and art lovers’ heaven, but as an Italian woman my desire is to help you discover the “Florentine vibe” and understand the soul of such an ancient and full of history city.

The historic center can be easily visited on foot and you’ll be surprised at how rich the concentration of cultural and artistic heritage is in such a small territory; it is precisely for this reason that it won’t be difficult to plan a custom-made guided tour for you according to the experience that you would like to live.

Florence offers everything and everything for everybody! In this website, you can find some examples and ideas of how you can spend your vacation in Florence because the tours that I am proposing can be combined and are very flexible, both for the duration and the itinerary.

Don’t hesitate to Contact Me me to arrange a walking City Tour which is tailor made for you, in line with your desires and your needs, led by a local tour guide who wants to make your experience unique and special.
