Official Tour Guide of Florence and Siena
My name is Michele Busillo and I am a licensed tour guide for the provinces of Florence and Siena, in Italian, Spanish and English language
I was born in the Province of Salerno. The historical roots of the village where I spent the childhood and the love transmitted to me by my grandparents in his care and valorization have led me to have, from an early age, a great passion for history, art and traditions of a place.
As well as my beloved grandparents did with me, I began to want to transmit to others that same passion and I made sure, through university training, that it became a profession.
I undertook studies in art history first at the University of Salerno, then at the University of Siena on a specialized path, where I graduated with a thesis on the royal iconography from the Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages.
In the meantime I have been doing volunteer work for some years as a cultural divulger for school children of different degrees.
I worked as a trainee at the Superintendency of Salerno and at the Briganti photo library of Siena, taking care of the photographic cataloging of works of art spread throughout the Sienese and Salerno areas.
I improved my knowledge of Spanish thanks to the one-year Erasmus program at the University of Salamanca, in Spain.
The same I did for English thanks to a study period in Bristol, where I attended at an intensive English course which has given to me a better command of the language.
I got the license as tourist guide first in Siena, then in Florence, passing the examinations of respective territorial competence, thus achieving my dream: discovering magic and beauty of Tuscany through Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, and Siena, the charming old town and its breathtaking countryside.
Passion and great enthusiasm are what I offer to whom that want to experience an unforgettable journey in this magic place.
