Hi, I’m Virginia and I’m a fully licensed tour guide in Florence and Tuscany. I was born in England but came to Florence as a young art student in 1986, fresh from a degree in Fine Art.
I chose to become a guide because of the iconic Art and the beauty that surround me , calling out to be shared with culture hungry visitors ! My own love of this city and the idyllic Region of Tuscany infuse my tours with enthusiasm and passion. Being a guide is being myself, I like to feel as if I’m showing friends around my city, making them feel at home and revealing the most intimate stories that weave through the history of Florence.
I’d like to encourage families with young and not so young children to come on a tour with me. I have many years of hands-on-experience as an English teacher and have created all of my didactic material which I use in my tours , such as quizzes, treasure and scavenger hunts. My own enjoyment working with kids helps keep them happy and focused !
I’m totally flexible about whatever you’d like to see and do. I can offer extra activities such as cooking classes, trips to Chianti for Wine and Oil tasting, painting classes with egg tempera and much more.
I specialise in bespoke , private tours for families, couples and small groups. I like to keep the feel of the experience as relaxed and fun as possible and you will be in the intimacy of your family and friends.
I look forward to meeting you
