Among the many names of Italian fashion, Gucci certainly cannot be missing. We will visit the museum dedicated to this iconic brand to retrace the stages of its evolution and admire its most representative pieces. The museum tells us the story of the Florentine brand that, thanks to its creativity and its unmistakable logo, first achieved fame among Hollywood stars, and then became the symbol of Made in Italy style and high quality all over the world.
Inside the same building, there is also the Gucci Garden boutique where you can find unique accessories, garments and items for sale exclusively in this shop as well as a Michelin start restaurant that is run by the famous Italian Chef Massimo Bottura.
For a truly super exclusive and fancy experience, it is possible to visit the Antico Setificio Fiorentino, specialized since 1786 in the production of precious fabrics intended to furnish castles and palaces all over the world and that you can buy yourself, customized according to your taste. It is a unique location where craftsmanship and high fashion come together to create a "dream factory" that gives life to precious brocades, silks and damasks that are still made with eighteenth-century machinery and ancient craft techniques.
The real luxury here is manual activity made up of precision, precise rules and tradition handed down for centuries.
You can end your day dedicated to fashion and luxury with an aperitif on an exclusive panoramic terrace in Florence. On top of a medieval tower, a Renaissance palace or a very luxurious hotel in the historic center, there are incredible terraces with a view where you can relax sipping a drink or a glass of wine and from which you can enjoy suggestive sunsets over the city.

I am very passionate about my job and I like sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge with my guests. Being myself a traveler and having lived abroad for a while, I easily understand foreign languages and cultures and show greater empathy with those who visit Florence with me, managing to identify myself more in their shoes. For this reason my tours are never prepackaged and are always adaptable and customizable according to your requests and needs.
I like to create travel experiences for us to live together.
Booking a guided tour with a local tour guide allows you to plan your visit in the best possible way, recommended and lead by an expert who knows the city very well and is more familiar with managing times and itineraries (museum reservations, skip-the-line tickets, alternative routes, tour customization, etc…).
It is also a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture, discovering not only historical and artistic information but also curious anecdotes and legends.
All my tours are customizable according to your requests and needs. Let me know what you like or what you are looking for and I will create a tailor-made tour for you.
All my tours are private; this means that any tour you decide to book will be exclusively for you, your partner or your family and there will be no additional participants other than those chosen by you. This guarantees you total flexibility and independence.
