I’m a licensed tour guide of Florence and Sommelier. I was born and raised in Florence where I studied History of Art and earned my degree in History of Architecture. The love for my land has always brought me to study and discover Tuscany from every side, its history, traditions, wine and food culture. After University I wanted to live a countryside experience so I got a job as wine educator in a Chianti winery where I discovered my big passion for wines. I then started to escort people in Florence and Tuscany and I’ve been collaborating with some guided books and magazines concerning Tuscany and in particular I’ve been writing about the best itineraries to do in our region. I’m very passionate about our precious extra virgin olive oil and every year I go olive-piking. Thanks to my deep knowledge of Tuscany I’m able to help people understand the culture of this beautiful land.
