About Us

Who We Are

Unique Florence was founded in January 2015 by Alexandre and Carine, founders and owners of Unique Private Tours which has its headquarter in Paris (France).

After half a dozen trips to Florence, Alexandre feels at home in the The City of Lilies and he decided to extend Unique's operations in Venice and Rome. Between 2010 and 2018, Unique Private Tours has helped more than 10000 individual travellers and corporates to get the most memorable trips in Venice, Florence and Paris.

Alex is a true Parisian who graduated from the same top French business school as Carine. He worked for 6 years in investment banking for JPMorgan in Paris/London and is passionate about Florence and Italy where he spends at least 1 month every year. He has a very extensive travel experience around the world (he already visited 60+ countries) and about entrepreneurship (he has new business ideas every day!).

Carine is also a true Parisian, very well travelled and she has an extensive working experience in Germany in the car industry (she lived for 10 years in Stuttgart). She also lived for 1 year in the US and loves Florence where she is personally going every quarter.

Unique Florence's guide team has expanded a lot since the beginning of operations in 2015 and includes now more than 15 licensed guides. Most of them are native Florentines and extremely enthusiastic about showing you the wonders of the City of Lilies. Being taken on a private tour by one of our guides will be a truly enjoyable, stimulating, exciting and amusing experience. You will feel like being accompanied by a friend, a local, someone who knows the city you are visiting in depth. The enthusiasm of our guides in showing you the obvious and hidden gems of Florence will be overwhelming and contagious!
