francesco casalini - guide in florence

About me

My name is Francesco and Florence has always been the centre and focus of my life.

This is the place where I was born and raised, where I studied Foreign Languages and Literature at the university, where I got married and where I became a father.
I lived and worked in Paris and London, afterward I started teaching in schools for students studying abroad.

In 1993, the municipality held a Tourist Guide License competition; I was the 14th out of more than a thousand candidates. At that moment, my passion for the history of my city turned into my job.

A passionate vision of the art, the past, the present, the economy, the tradition of Florence is what I seek to deliver you, and the role that Florentines played in creating the modern world.

There was a time when this city was “the school of the world”; it is that time I’ll try to make alive. Listen with me to the whispers of the silent testimonials of that glorious era, in the museums, the squares, and the streets.

Since I have been working as a Guide for some 25 years long and I met so many customers with very different expectations, I am quite confident of being able to satisfy yours too.
