I am Paola, I’m a guide and I live in Florence. I grew up in in the North of Italy and moved to Florence in 1984 to study Political Sciences, specializing in history.

I fluently speak Italian, English, German, Spanish and French. I became a fully qualified and licensed Tour Guide for Florence’s City in 1998, after I had taken a master in marketing and worked for an international company for some years.

I am married to Giovanpaolo and we run a small hotel (Kursaal & Ausonia***) in the heart of the city. We have 3 children: Alarigo, Lamberto and Matilde.

I consider myself incredibly lucky because I can share my passion for this unique city with other people. With Guided Florence Tours I wanted to gather together some highly specialized and experienced tour guides that are enthusiastic about Florence and its rich history as I am.

It will be a pleasure for me and my partners to share the beauty and hidden secrets of Florence with you!
