Your private guide in Florence

Angela Buriani lives and works in Florence, where she has dedicated herself to the study of art history, after travelling the world extensively for many years as Tour Manager for several companies.

Now Angela is a professional Guide of Florence and the Tuscan countryside, gives private tours in English, Spanish, French and Italian, and from 2007 to 2012 she has been a Smithsonian study leader for their “Art Treasures of Italy ” tour.

In pursuing her passion for the food and wine of Tuscany, Angela became a certified A.I.S. Sommelier and member of the Slow Food organization, an international culinary movement that started in Italy and now she also gives food and wine tours in Florence and in Tuscany. Her favourite Tuscan wines are the full-bodied reds, such as Paleo and Guado al Tasso, produced near Bolgheri on the coast, but she also loves Montalcino wines and the Chianti Classico Riserva.

Another of her interests is fashion: she headed the sales campaign team at Gucci – a company started in Florence – when Tom Ford was the lead designer. She has two teenage girls who keep her on her toes: Rubina, nineteen years old, and Delfina, sixteen. In her free time, you will find her practising yoga, swimming and scuba diving.

Angela will be happy to organize your walking tours, museums' tours, kids' tours and kids' activities, taking care of all reservations and tailoring your tour on your needs, to make your stay in Florence a really special one!
