Overview

My name is Paola Albiero and I freelance as a Licenced Tour Guide of Florence and its environs. I enjoy conducting guided tours for students of all ages and grades, individuals, families with children, and small groups; but I find it highly gratifying to work with large groups as well, for which my experience as a tour manager comes in handy. It is also always a pleasure to organize sightseeing tours for the visually impaired or the disabled. My work allows me to meet and get to know people who come to Florence from all over the world to admire its wonders. And, to those who come to visit my country, I enjoy offering what I would personally wish to receive when I travel to other countries: courtesy, expertise, and a helpful attitude.
