This was my first experience with a private guide, and Mme Barcucci made it incredible and really unforgettable! During just three hours I got to know not only the key points of the history of Florence, but, also, learned how to understand and distinguish the different architectural styles, could see how the art of sculpture evolved with time, how much information could be encrypted on the frescoes, and, finally, among other things, got priceless insiders info on how to choose the true Italian ‘gelato’ and other advice on how to make your Italian trip really ‘Italian’. Our communication with Caterina was very friendly and open, it was the dialogue, not monologue of the guide, I was free to ask any questions and Caterina tried not only answer them, but, gave me much broader understanding on the theme. The only thing I can regret about, is that it was three hours only!.. Hope, in my next time in Florence we could meet once again and continue..)

We had a three hour walking tour with Caterina and every minute was amazing. I cannot recommend a tour with her enough. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Florentine history, art, and culture. She pointed out so many details that we hadn’t even noticed while walking the same streets a few hours before. She also told us a bit about Florentine living and political intrigue during the Renaissance. She’s super professional and pleasant. She was on time, her English is easy to understand, and her pacing is great. We learned a ton and would gladly go on another tour again, should we come back to Florence. Please consider a tour with Caterina if you’re in the market for a walking tour of Florence. You won’t regret your choice!

We were a group of 5 sixty-something women and Caterina was perfect. She struck the right balance and she was like one of our group. It was scorching hot and cut to the chase in the art museums to the most important pieces and those we wanted to see. We covered a lot walking around the city with her annotation. She was engaging, enthusiastic, lovely and protective of us when the gypsies even tried to approach us. Loved her!

I visited Florence with my lady friends. 3 of is went on a walking tour and visited academia. We had amazing time with Caterina. Carerina is very knowledgeable and informative and walked in our own pace. She was kind enough to stop in paper shop and gave excellent dinner recommendations.

Maria Angela Soldà (Angela) gave us a tour of Florence that we will never forget! She is knowledgeable and friendly and was flexible to take us on the kind of tour that suited us. Since we were able to go to the museums on our own we didn't do that with Angela, though she did help us navigate the ticket purchases for our visit to the top of the Duomo (not to be missed!). We had asked Angela to take us to less-visited areas of Florence, so we traveled a winding route through the city, getting historical information everywhere we walked. Angela is lovely and passionately enthusiastic about sharing her magnificent city. Angela even made phone calls for us and gave us suggestions for restaurants and where to leave our bags on our last day in Florence! We highly recommend a tour with Angela!
