Paola is an incredibly friendly host with an encyclopedic knowledge of art history and styles, architecture, and the history of her city. If you want a fun, efficient tour to see the most important works and see them in their proper perspectives, Paola is your guide! Thank you Paola!

  • My day touring Florence with Paola was absolutely wonderful. She knows the city's history, most beautiful sites, the people and the very cool, out of the way places to visit. Would highly recommend you take a tour of Florence with Paola when you take your trip there. You won't be disappointed! Thanks Paola!!!

  • Paola was wonderful. Customized a walking tour for us, and was well worth the money, especially if time is limited. She took good care of us, and could answer any questions. She loves her city and her work and it shows. We have a really nice morning with her, and would have missed so much without her guidance...

  • Thanks to Paola, we experienced Florence in a way that would not have been possible without her guidance.

  • We had requested that the tour end with lunch at a restaurant off the tourist track. Paola took us to a local trattoria where we enjoyed an excellent lunch.
    Mary, September 2015
  • She was so informative and had a passion for the artwork, making the tour that much more meaningful. Her knowledge and love of Florence was apparent in everything she shared.
    Mary, September 2015
  • Paola was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. We booked a full day with her and enjoyed every minute of it. She was informative and you can see and hear just how passionate she is when she speaks of Florence and the history of the city. I would recommend Paola to anyone looking for a guide in Florence. Thanks to Paola we have wonderful memories from Florence.

  • Paola was an excellent tour guide. She was informative and she also made an extra special effort to keep our two young kids engaged for the full seven hour tour! They loved her, asking tons of questions about the art and history that Paola guided us through. I would absolutely recommend her services for anyone that wants to see and learn about Florence.
    Cathy, August 2015
  • …Whether walking through Boboli Gardens or analyzing art work in the Uffizi Gallery, Paola had facts at her fingertips, interesting historical anecdotes to share related to art work, and guidance and advice for navigating through the gardens and streets of Florence. I learned so much, and I have developed a deeper appreciation of Italian history and culture. Thank you, Paola!

  • We visited Florence May 2015, we booked a 3 hours Walking Tour and our guide was Paola Albiero :) She is perfect, she provided us to the main attractions in this beautiful city, at every corner there was a story to tell and we were like a kids waiting for her to tell us the stories and the history of the city. I highly recommend to visit Florence with her :)

  • We were a group of 9 with 5 teenagers. Paola, our guide was prompt, engaging and showed us the city of Florence in a way that kept even the teenagers engaged! It was a relaxed and lovely day. A great first taste of Florence. Highly recommended!

  • Don't hesitate to hire her and work with her company - you won't be disappointed. We booked several days for 3-4 hours a day and were grateful we did.... amazing tours and wonderful education for our entire family.
    Keith, August 2015
  • Above all, she conveys this with a sense of earnest wonder that makes you wish you had studied and paid a lot more attention to the Renaissance and Italian history in school.
    Keith, August 2015
  • She knows the tour operators of a private boat company on the Fiume Arno, where you cruise in Florentine fashion down the river and every tourist wonders why they can't do that as well...
    Keith, August 2015
  • She knows when to visit which museum and which building, so the light on the David is just right and you can see the subtlety of Michelangelo's craft, and what time and day to visit the Uffizi so its not a total mob scene.
    Keith, August 2015
  • Paola is a wonderful guide, teacher and student of the world of Florentine art, culture and architecture. She knows the behind-the-scenes people who delight in teaching tourists about their craft and trade.
    Keith, August 2015
  • Thank you again for arranging all of those tours for us, we really had a great time with you in Florence and all of the guides you recommended. Bologna was spectacular and Montelpulciano was very unique. We will be in touch when we come back to italy. Thanks again for your help!
    Blake, November 2014
  • You made us fall in love with your city!
    Marwa, May 2015
