I am Australian born, from Sydney, however I am convinced that I have an Italian soul, or at least it was written in the stars that I was going to settle here in Italy. I have always been eurocentric. France was my first love, but when I came to Italy nineteen years ago, it was love at first sight. One continues to visit a country, or a place, when there is a love for a bit of everything - maybe the food, the fashion, the pace of life, the art, the countryside, the magnificent cities - and I have made Italy my homeA visit to Freya's Florence Tours represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Florence holiday maker website to plot your vacation.

They animate the paintings, flavour the food and colour the streets. Their creativity and their arrogance, their magnanimity and devotion to life make the country what it was and what it is today.
I studied European, and predominately Italian, art history at the University of Sydney, The Sorbonne and Warwick University and, as a painting speaks a thousand words, this enabled me to enter a world of great men and women, one of power and display and of passion, both religious and profane. I became a licensed tour guide of Florence, as the city is a museum, both historical and contemporary, of the Italian people. Good guides are said to bring the city to life. A great city like Florence doesn't need much help from me, though perhaps a little translation, and
that is what I aim always to do.
