Norie | about the guide

Have you read Dan Brown’s novel 'Inferno'? Hitting cinemas in October 2016, the movie version stars Tom Hanks who, waking up with amnesia in a Florence hospital, must solve an enigma based upon on 'Inferno', Dante's epic poem. Pursued by an evil enemy, he flees through Florence from the Boboli Gardens, through the Medici Passage over the Old Bridge, towards the Palazzo Vecchio… With your experienced local guide, follow in the footsteps of Tom Hanks as you too discover the passages and secrets of this Renaissance city. The 4-hour walking tour will begin in the Boboli Gardens filled with Renaissance statues and fountains. Crossing over the Arno via the Ponte Vecchio, you will continue into the winding streets and vast squares of the old center past the Uffizi and into Palazzo Vecchio. After exploring the inside with your guide, you will continue on to the House of Dante and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and its baptistery. You will also have time to take a peek inside the “Duomo” to admire its paintings and interior before the tour comes to an end.

Dutch born, I lived in Haarlem until the age of 19, then I moved to Amsterdam to study art history. During my studies I did an Erasmus exchange program and studied in Florence for a few months. I graduated in 1997 in Amsterdam but I had fallen in love with Florence so I decided to come back in 2001 thanks to a research scholarship from the Dutch University Institute of Art in Florence. In 2005, I married a Florentine and started my tour guide career. I enjoy being an art historian and I believe that as a tour guide, one has to know less about art history, but much more about every aspect of this city such as gastronomy, fashion, and music. So combining the two professions is ideal! I love mixing art with other disciplines of culture and seeing people enjoy themselves. The walking tour combined with literature and Italian gastronomy is one of my favorites!
