Who I am

Hello everyone, I’m Sara! I was born and raised in this wonderful city, at the shadow of the “Rocca” of Frederick II and with the scent of the white truffle. I have many memories related to these places that, still today, gives me wonderful emotions and panoramas. Graduated at Carlo Cattaneo high school in San Miniato, today I work as a tour guide in the beautiful cities of Tuscany and, since art has always been my passion, I try to convey to others the knowledge of our beautiful territory and to make people love art and history! I will accompany you with selected tours especially for you, dedicated to adults and children, to discover the places that made history and gave birth to the most important artists, scientists, inventors who changed the world forever!
