My name is Ilenia, licensed Florence based guide.
I was born in Modena ( town of Ferrari and balsamic vinegar) and I have worked for many years for an Italian Tour Operator.
Thanks to this job I spent many years abroad, working and living in several countries as Maldives, Kenya, Zanzibar, England, Egypt, Greek and Germany.
But Florence is the one that took my heart!!!
It is a town to be discovered, with a wonderfull history and with an unique artistic heritage.
The most important artists, from Michelangelo to Leonardo, used to meet here, working, fighting, cooperating together.
The great competition between the Florentine families became a source of commissions for these artists who created here their masterpieces.
And they left in any corner of Florence something about their style and life.
But Florence is not only art. Gastronomy, handicraft, traditions: any corner of the town can tell us something amazing.
I will be glad to take a walk with you on the streets where Michelangelo, Leonardo Donatello and the big Reinassence artists used to walk.
