My name is Monica and I am an official tour guide for Siena, Florence and their surroundings.
I live in Castellina in Chianti, a small village perched on top of a hill halfway between Siena and Florence.
The Chianti region is famous all over the World for its excellent wine and for its breathtaking landscape.
I have a degree in Foreign Languages (I speak English and German). For 10 years I have been working in various hotels of the Chianti region, but my real passion has always been Art History. I was 16 years old when I visited the Uffizi Gallery for the first time and it was love at first sight. Since then the passion for art and history never extinguished and for that reason I decided to become a tour guide.
I attended two courses, where I studied art, history and local traditions. After having passed the final examinations, I obtained the license to practice.
For many years I’ve been carrying out this job for passion and with passion I’ve been giving voice to the beauty that surrounds us.
Booking a tour with a qualified tour guide will allow you to make the most out of your time. You will have at your complete disposal a professional, who will try to answer all your questions and curiosities.
I work with groups, schools, individuals and families offering my assistance from the moment of the booking to the end of the tour.
On the web site you will find some proposals, but I can customize any itinerary depending on your wishes and your available time.
Put on comfortable shoes and lets’go!
