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 faboulous 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 extremeley 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 in alphabetical order:

Lucia Lazic (Tuscany)



Lucia LazicOfficial Tourist Guide Florence & District    Italiano, English, Español, Hrvatski, Srpski, Português
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 Civilisation 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 favourite 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! Let’s discover Florence on foot together!
I’m Vincenzo, territorial and licenced 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 scenary 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 Granduky 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 delitious and tempting local flavours, 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.

Sabina Salusti (Marche)

Sabina SalustiMi chiamo Sabina e sono una guida turistica abilitata della Regione Marche oramai da 15 anni.  Amo profondamente la mia terra  e i suoi mille volti, le dolci colline, i Monti Azzurri, gli splendidi panorami, i borghi a picco sul mare o che si affacciano sui Sibillini.  La ricchezza e la particolarità dei piccoli centri medievali fanno sì che ogni sosta sia una piacevole sorpresa. Le città inoltre serbano tesori d'arte incredibili: piazze, chiese, musei, palazzi, teatri storici.
I percorsi storico artistici si abbinano perfettamente alla ricerca dei sapori tradizionali e all'incontro con gli artigiani manifatturieri, custodi di vecchie lavorazioni tradizionali, conservate gelosamente e tramandate esclusivamente all'interno della loro azienda.  Irrinunciabile, per gli amanti della moda,è lo shopping tour negli outlet delle migliori firme della calzatura e dei cappelli.  La mia consolidata esperienza nel settore dei musei e delle visite guidate mi ha permesso di acquisire una spiccata dose di versatilità nel condurre gruppi eterogenei di turisti, dai bambini fino agli esperti di Storia dell'Arte.

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!
