Based in Fiesole a delightful hill top village with Etruscan origins, just a stone’s throw away from one of the most beautiful art cities of the world, Florence. “I have always been a lover of nature and my hobby of photography started at an early age and was enhanced by the beauty of the Tuscan countryside with it’s Medieval villages and towns dotted with elegant castles, villas and charming farmhouses. Being a true Italian, I am passionate about our cuisine, good wines and together with my interest in art and architecture would like to share this knowledge. I can show you some of the more interesting places, from the smallest hamlet immersed in the countryside, a local trattoria or locanda to the finer side of city life with elegant hotels and restaurants. I can provide up to date information on theatres, exhibitions and museums. You can meet producers of some of our best products, including a vast selection of wines, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the prestigious black and white truffles, together with our wonderful cheeses and delicious chocolates.

Beautiful views of Florence and a must see at sunset with an aperitif and dinner to follow. Fiesole is a lovely little town to visit if you want to move out of the centre of Florence for the day.
