Florence, ITALY (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
If you’re planning a trip to Florence, Italy, you’ll likely get more out of the journey if someone who knows the city well is there to give you an insider’s point of view of things. Paola, the owner of Florence Guided Tours, is likely the individual who can provide that viewpoint.
In 1984, Paola moved to Florence to further her education, and while she was there; the unexpected happened. She fell in love--with Florence. Originally from the Northern part of Italy, Paola was awed by the breathtaking beauty and the fascinating history of the city of Florence.
She set out to learn everything she could about Florence, and by 1998, she gained certification and licensing that allowed her to be a Florence tour guide. Still in love with Florence and all it has to offer, Paola and her husband own and operate a hotel in the city, but her passion for art and history keep her out and about, exploring and discovering new things about her beloved city.
Now, Paola has launched her own business providing personalized guided tours for individuals and groups around the city of Florence. Paola works to give her tour groups a behind-the-scenes look at Florence attractions, by giving them insight into the history and culture that has shaped the city.
Paola is multi-lingual, and speaks English, Spanish, French, and German as well as Italian, which allows her to accommodate tour groups who speak these languages. She has designed several tours that focus on specific aspects of Florence’s history and art, including tours of the Uffizi Gallery and the Academy of Fine Art. She also offers more general walking tours of Florence highlights, including art, architecture, and more.
