Our group of qualified tourist guides was born on a social network where we all met after sharing the same ideas about one of the most important issues: the high quality standards of our tours. Although we lived in different areas of Italy, each with their own arts, history and culture, we noticed that we were all sharing the same goal: to make our guests get the best out of each place. So we decided to meet in Naples and share a meal while discussing a project to create a fabulous team of very professional and passionate qualified tourist guides who would offer the same quality standards to our customers visiting Italy.

The qualified tourist guides who are part of this special team are all extremely knowledgeable and informative but, at the same time, they are friendly and fun, they are passionate about their jobs which they perform enthusiastically,  they love connecting with other people and they are fantastic with kids, so that everybody can enjoy an amazing tour of Italy and feel at home.

Here is a profile of each of us:

Lucia Lazic (Tuscany)

Lucia Lazic
Official Tourist Guide Florence & District    Italiano, English, Spanish, Hrvatski, Srpski, Portuguese
I was not born in Tuscany, but rather in another World Heritage location, in Dubrovnik, a maritime city-state across the Adriatic sea, which had many dealing with Tuscany throughout its millenary history. Thus, I too, was marked by the unique atmosphere of a very beautiful town, full of historical monuments and art treasures. It was therefore inevitable that I should want to see the World Capital of Art and the crib of Western Civilization as we know it, and certainly not surprising that I should elect to settle and live in it. Before coming to Florence I have spent several years between London, Germany and Spain, studying various subjects. Being particularly interested in History, History of Religion and Anthropology, I have chosen to complete my education in Florence studying its history. Nowadays my favorite and most fascinating subject is to research and explore how art adapts to social changes with the passage of time. Florence inspires endlessly, and in so many ways. Florence has changed my life, and I am grateful for every emotion that its riches and its beauty, its refined elegance and its unique spirit have given me over the past twenty years. I wish that everyone would experience the love for Florence the way I do.

Come and burn  some Florence  pavement! Letís discover Florence on foot together!
Iím Vincenzo, territorial and licensed Tourist Guide, expert of Florence and surroundings.  
Walking is a great way to see this global city and the best way to get accurate information and enthusiasm of its astonishing past and inviting  present.
The idea is to give you a taster of what is what and where it is and leave you with a feeling of a city that still  blows its trumpets, never forgetting you are first of all visitors and guests on holiday and relax rather than simply touch and go tourists..
What did the Romans do for us?  Well, 2,000 years ago they founded Florentia on the site that now encompasses the City of Florence, the world's historical centre, UNESCO  site and open air museum with a spectacular scenery on alive history, arts and architecture. 
A few hours walking tour will lead you past the Medieval sites and where Renaissance was born as well as through the capital city of the Medici Grand Dukes during the three hundred years period of the Grand duchy of Tuscany.
You will see the effects on the city of the Kingdom and unification of Italy in the XIX century.
It also will lead you through the two main sites: the religious and the political one as well as through the "where it was as it was"  area  reconstructed after the important damages suffered by german mines in 1944.  A suitable way of touring the city which will offer you the opportunity of tasting the alive past combined with unique sightseeings, and also the chance of getting advice on where delicious and tempting local flavors, food and wine can be tasted at your own leisure. It will surely make you feel you're experiencing your time in town as part of its history and spirit.

Samuele  Socci (Tuscany)

Samuele Socci Licensed tourist guide for Florence and surroundings in English, Spanish and Italian.
I think that touring a city must be an absolute and unique pleasure, not a boring or disappointing experience.
A city is not only a bunch of dates and information, but a living being that involves the five senses, so its art, its food, its traditions, its Music, its culture. are all equally important.
My aim is to let you have a memorable and fulfilling experience in Florence. hoping that you will come back to enjoy more of it!

Elisa Bruna (Piedmont)

My name is Elisa Bruna, I work in Turin as an English speaking guide. Back in 1996, when I got my tour guide license, I was convinced that Turin (Torino in Italian) would be an emerging tourist destination. It wasnít easy, because at that time, Torino was only perceived as a dull industrial city.
Today, everybody (or almost!) knows that Turin is an impressive city of elegant charm and surprising treasures.
Imagine that ĄLonely Planet Best in Travelď, which reveals its annual list of the best travel destinations to visit, listed Piedmont on the first place of the Top 10 regions for the year 2019 !
A dream has finally come true...

Fiorella Pagotto (Veneto)

I was born and I grew up in Venice and after a degree in tourism I worked as a tour leader guiding my clients to discover the most important Italian cities. Then I passed my degree in Art and architecture in the Venetian University C√  Foscari, studying venetian art and history and finally I passed my examination as tourist guide of Venice.  Every day I feel enthusiastic with my job, meeting my visitors and other cultures. I am very flexible and adapt my visit to my guestsí specific interests and preferences. I am also child-friendly, so many of my guests are families, small groups or students.   As independent art historian I do historical research in the venetian archives on original documents, my studies are dedicated in particular to venetian artists and merchants of the 16th and 17th Century, so my tours can give you a different and more curious point of view on the History and life in Venice, today and in the past.  I live in Murano, the glass island, with my family. I like music, traveling, good food and pets. I have also a long experience in organizing trip to Venice, so I am glad when I can give suggestions to my guests to organize better their vacation in the city!

Cristina Verona
Cristina Verona
Hi, I was born in Verona and after my university studies I worked for several years in Mantua, Vicenza and Lake Garda, always in the field of tourism. Having successfully passed the examination to become an official guide of Verona, lake Garda and its region in year 2000 I settled down in Verona and I then widened my territorial skills to the surrounding areas like Mantua and Vicenza. Since then I have been passionately telling the wonders of these cities. My love for art history, archaeology and history in general led me to follow courses in Roman and Byzantine studies for about twenty years, which ended with cultural training visits all over the Mediterranean. This gave me the desire to share with visitors the heritage of my city Verona and the others where I lived. These are three minor Italian cities. I suggest you to spend one night and one day in each of these cities.
Donít rush, enjoy art, food, wine, smells, at every corner youíll discover something!
