Meet your Guide: Cristina

NAME: Cristina!
Hi, Cristina!

Hi, Cristina!

NAME OF TOUR YOU LEAD AND WHERE?
I lead… quite a lot! You can find me in a Florence Segway Tour, a Florence Bike tour, a Florence Food Tour, and Florence Duomo with Brunelleschi’s Dome climb.

 

YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF THE TOUR?
I really like the customers’ questions, above all when they’re made by kids: It’s an enjoyable interactive moment!

 

FAVOURITE LOCAL RESTAURANT IN YOUR CITY?
I’d really suggest everyone to try the Trattoria Angiolino, in via Santo Spirito, a fun typical restaurant with a local menu, in one of the most authentic quarters of Firenze.

 

ONE THING VISITORS TO YOUR CITY CAN’T MISS?
Everyone should pay a visit to the Church of San Miniato Uphill: it’s an unique romantic atmosphere, especially at sunset… there’s a bit of effort to make, but the reward will worth it!

 

TRAVEL MANTRA?
“Remember: a light luggage… to fill with a lot of kitsch souvenirs!”

 

yum!

yum!

WHAT’S NEXT ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET LIST?

I really want visit to the Universal Food Exposition in Milan. A food-addict as me cannot miss it!
WHAT’S THE FOOD THAT SOMEONE MUST TRY IN YOUR CITY BEFORE LEAVING??
It may sound an easy answer, but… it’s the one and only!
Don’t miss our T-bone steak, called Fiorentina. Better still in match with Chianti red wine!
WHAT’S THE MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE YOU HAD ON ONE OF YOUR TOURS?
On a Segway tour, a customer went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend with an amazing Tiffany diamond.
He was still wearing the protective helmet.

WHAT IS YOUR BEST TIP FOR THOSE COMING TO VISIT ITALY?

Keep calm and drive… in our wild countryside. Italy has plenty of charming and little known towns that are waiting for you to discover them!

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR TOUR UNIQUE?
I love to lead my tours with a good compromise of fun and culture!
Next time you come to Florence… don’t forget to ask for Cristina as your tour guide!
