Native tour guide,
Art history researcher.
I’m Mario Gesù, a native florentine. I believe in research and in the alternation of the seasons: as a tourist guide I am aware that good work in full season (spring-summer) is also possible thanks to the time spent on books during the autumn-winter.
Knowledge and passion

Mariogesu Fantacci Uffizi Gallery and the Vasarian Corridor Tour
“Mariogesu's passsion and enthusiam for Italian Art and it's history was infectious, it was a 2 way dialogue which flowed between him and the group members, no matter what their knowledge base was every one was compelled to take part. I left the tour with so much more than just having viewed some of the finest examples of classical art, it was an education delivered brilliantly by an excellent guide. In a city of so many things to see, this is a must. TREMENDOUS”
Incredible tour with Mario Gesu!
"Mario was incredibly kind, knowledgable, and approached the tour in a very different way than most guides. Instead of simply talking about individual paintings, he told the story of the rise and evolution of Italian art, and used different works to illustrate the various and evolving methods. It was one of the best tours I've ever taken - anywhere. He was fantastic and worth every penny.”
Mario Gesu' is exceptional
“Whether you are on a bicycle touring the city, or wandering the galleries of the Uffizi, Mario Gesu' will make your experience worthwhile and memorable. Mario is an exceptional guide who has a passion for the city if Florence. He will provide a very personal V.I.P. experience that you are unlikely to forget. I highly recommend FlorenceTown tours, and in particular, the experiences offered by Mario.”
