For about 20 years I have been working as a tour guide in Florence and I have to say this is the best job in the world. Foreign languages and history of art have always been my passion, Florence and Tuscany my pride.
That's why a few years ago I opened my own personal Tour Operator, ACCORD Italy Smart Tours & Experiences, specialized in Incoming services. Since then I realized that sharing my love for my hometown and my region with visitors from all over the world is a real vocation.
Now the work is huge and since I'm more and more busy designing new tours and experiences for my guests, I often ask for collaboration with good colleagues who can welcome you in my place. It is important to know that they are all professionals and above all they share with me the same passion and enthusiasm for my land.

Consiglio di arrivare con largo anticipo e di insistere con le persone che vi aspettano per avere i biglietti con anticipo rispetto all'orario stampato e consiglio di specificare se si tratta di un tour guidato perchè non è sempre così. Per il resto è andato tutto bene, gestito con una certa elasticità, la nostra guida è stata fantastica e ci ha davvero fatto vivere la migliore esperienza possibile in due ore per il museo degli Uffizi. Abbiamo assaporato il meglio del meglio e lo abbiamo davvero apprezzato, la guida ci ha regalato anche un ulteriore tempo per aggiungere Caravaggio (che non era in programma), davvero una persona gentile e molto preparata.

Really great tour touching on all the highlights in the gallery. It’s a very big place, with lots to see, so it was very helpful to have someone guiding us through it. Giulio (sp?) was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable and funny.

Its absolutely worth booking a tour to miss most of the long queuing! Our tour group was small, and our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly that our two hours inside flew by!

We are very happy about the decision to book a guided tour for our family of five from Australia. Our guide enthusiastically presented a compelling story of the art and artists in their historical context. In particular, the tour enabled our children to develop an appreciation of the significance of the wonders of the Uffizzi.

This was a very interesting tour full of historical context and insightful information. The tour hits the Galley’s highlights and was well presented. The tour helped to provide very good depth of understanding of the beautiful works of art in the Gallery no matter if one has a good background in art or is a novice. The afternoon tour brought added benefit by seeing the sunset over the city from the Gallery and the way that special light enhanced the art and sculptures.
