YOUR TOUR GUIDE IN FLORENCE

eleonora tonon guida turistica

I was born in Veneto region, north-east of Italy; in 2013 I moved to Tuscany. Since 2011 I have been working as a free lancer Tour Leader in Italy and abroad. In 2016, I became an official licensed Tour Guide of Florence and its district.
I attended a high school of Tourism and then graduated in „Planning and Management of Cultural Tourism“ at the University of Padova in 2010.
I was a student on the exchange programm „Erasmus“ at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid; I did an internship at the Guggenheim Collection of Venice, I attended a few study-holidays in La Ciotat, Saint Petersburg, Kyoto, and Bath. I have a true, passionate love for foreign languages, travels, books, gardens and art history.
I’m curious, restless, enthusiastic: always suffering to know, to study, to see in an everlasting, eternal passion of life.
It doesn’t matter which kind of cultural knowledge you’re carrying on: the most important point is to transmit passion, give emotions and dreams.

After all, Claude Monet used to say: “Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love“.

YOUR GARDEN TOUR GUIDE IN AND AROUND FLORENCE

In 2013 I moved to Mugello. The lovely Tuscan countryside with the green geometry of the vineyards, the rolling hills dotted with olive trees, the verdant sequence of the cypresses was for me a surprise at every turn!

In 2015 I worked as a
tour leader for the „Association Acanthe“ (Franche-Comté) in a guided tour to the Naples and Amalfi Coast’s gardens. 

During this new experience, I appreciated so much the relaxed, cosy and blissful atmosphere of the
garden guided tour, a slower kind of tourism imbued with nature. Taking a stroll through the gardens is a gift: it offers memorable views in a sensory feast and gives you a sense of deep wellness and happiness!
That’s the reason why I started study on my own garden history and to attend couses in Italy and abroad.

In 2021, I was appointed as the official tour guide of the Cultural Association „
Firenze Greenway“ for the Estate Fiorentina 2021.

In 2021-2023 I will study in order to get the Diploma of “Garden History” at the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh.
