Det skal I lave

Forget the boring explanation of churches and monuments: Florence is an open-air museum but also a city full of tradition and anecdotes. My tour will be a journey through time to discover the identity of the city through its illustrious protagonists.
You'll start in Piazza della Repubblica, where the Romans founded Florence over 2000 years ago. In Piazza del Duomo you'll admire with me the imposing facade of the cathedral, in which the bloodiest murder that involved the Medici family took place: the Pazzi conspiracy. In the nearby 'medieval district' I'll tell you the story of Dante Alighieri, the poet who wrote the Divine Comedy.
Michelangelo, Donatello and Cellini are other great personalities that will accompany us to the discovery of Piazza della Signoria. But I will also let you know the dark side of this splendid square, which was the scene of the public execution of Girolamo Savonarola, here hanged and burned at the stake. Piazza degli Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio will be other important stages of your itinerary.
If you want to discover the artistic treasures of my city not forgetting anecdotes, intrigues, hidden secrets and illustrious murders that's the experience you're looking for!
-If you prefer to book the Experience ON ANOTHER TIME/DAY, please DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME: I will meet your needs!

Ciao! My name is Duccio, I'm an archaeologist and a licensed tourist guide of Florence and its Province since 2011.
I was born and raised in Tuscany, a region that I love and that gave birth to my most illustrious namesake, the Sienese painter Duccio di Buoninsegna. After graduating in Classics at the University of Pisa, I got a Specialization degree in Aegean Civilizations. Tuscany is the heart of the Etruscan Civilization, which I could investigate in various archaeological campaigns. Florence has a glorious past since its Roman foundation, a few decades before the birth of Christ. Today it's mostly known as the 'Cradle of the Renaissance', but this is just one of the aspects that make it famous! My aim is to show you the wealth of my city from another point of view. If you want to enjoy Florence off the beaten path I'm your guide!

This tour was a fantastic way to start our week in Tuscany and get oriented to Florence. Duccio clearly loves the city and is very knowledgeable. We now have a deeper understanding of the development of this city and region from Roman times to present, and a baseline for exploration. We look forward to trying out his recommendations!

Duccio gave a tour that was a fantastic combination -- history (which was very helpful for context), architecture and art, and some memorable anecdotes. (For example, did you know the reason there's an unfinished stone ring under the Duomo dome? I do now!) Great tour!

Duccio is one of the best guides - he's so knowledgeable that any question I thought of, he was answering before I asked it! I highly recommend his tours.
