My name is Ghergana. I was born and raised in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Ever since I was little I had a passion to look at fine arts books my Grandfather owned. After finishing high school I wanted to follow my passion of studying fine art.
My life journey led me to Florence, Italy, where I went to study the beautiful Italian language. Spending time in Florence, learning the language, the culture, the people, the customs, the history, the fashion all made me Fall in Love with Florence. Like they say ” I left my heart in Florence” ❣
I was privileged to be employed by well known designer houses in Florence. While working in the fashion industry I never forgot my passion for fine arts. During my free time, I loved to explore the rich Italian history and architecture. I loved walking the beautiful narrow streets of Florence. I admired the beautiful architecture around the city on both sides of the Arno River. I love Architecture ,It gave my hungry brain food for the soul. On those walks I started learning and researching the unique and diverse collection of architectural buildings in Florence. All that beauty led me to become a professional tourist guide. I am extremely happy that my work incorporates both things I love the most : art and fashion.
It is my pleasure to create tours that will create unforgettable moments for you during your visit in Beautiful Florence ❣
