For about 20 years I have been working as a tour guide in Florence and I have to say this is the best job in the world. Foreign languages and history of art have always been my passion, Florence and Tuscany my pride, that's why in 2008 I founded ACCORD Smart Tours & Experiences, my own Tour Operator specialized in incoming services; since then I realized that sharing my love for my hometown and my region with visitors from all over the world is a real vocation...considering the big flow, we have an amazing co-host to help us, his name is Gaetano, en archeologist and a licensed tourist guide.
