We are so glad we booked this tour! Paola knows so much about Florence, and the history she provided us while walking through Florence really added so much to the experience. Florence is a city so rich in history and art, and in my opinion it should be a "must do" on your list to go around the city with... More

Paola made our trip to Florence amazing! We learned so much about the history of the city on the Discover Florence tour and even more at the Accademia. She makes history and Florence come to life in a way you could never experience without her knowledge. We were so lucky to catch a glimpse of this amazing city though her... More

We just returned from 5 days in Florence; it was our first time in Italy. We worked with Stella, Paola's helpful assistant, beforehand to decide on three tours -- Discovery of Florence, Palazzo Vecchio, and Uffizi Gallery. They could not have been better! Paola was our guide for each--she was always on time, very efficient in getting us in/around each... More

Paola is exceptional. The best Tour we ever had in a city. She is able to explain how things were and how artists and governors lived and made their decisions. Do a walking tour first to get a great impression of Florence through the centuries and definitely let Paola talk about her interpretation of David at L'Accademia... you will often... More

We found Paola through TripAdvisor and what a find! We chose the 'Discovery of Florence' tour which was a two and a half hour walking tour of Florence in a small group with just one other couple. Paola is an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge to pass on. She made the history of Florence come alive and took... More

We came to Florence with our 8 year old daughter for a couple days to enjoy the city but knew little about it. We decided a tour guide would be helpful and found Paola through Google and trip advisor. We had her 2.5 hour Discover Florence private tour. She was outstanding! Professional, courteous, unbelievably knowledgeable and clearly focused on making... More

Having only two days in Florence, and never having been to the city before, I didn't want to wander about aimlessly, not fully appreciating or understanding what we were seeing. I contacted Guided Florence Tours through Google and am so grateful that I did. Paula organised three private tours for my wife and I: a walking tour of the city;... More

Returning to Florence after 10+ years would not have been the same without Silvia and Guided Florence! Our private walking tour was the highlight of our visit because it included everything we desired: history, insight, discovery, art, reflection, local artisans - and food! Setting the tone, Silvia reminded us that most people couldn't read during the age of the Medici,... More

My husband and I just returned from 8 days in Italy and one of the highlights was a terrific private walking tour with Paola. While I had studied in Florence, the city was new for my husband and Paola managed to give a wonderful overview of the city and its history in our 2 1/2 hour tour. So, if you're... More
