I am so pleased that I came across Caterina. Before we arrived, she helped me plan our day in Florence, advising me on advance ticket purchases and booking a restaurant for lunch. We did the 4 hour walking tour including the Uffizi and the Accademia. Caterina is really knowledgeable and very passionate about her work. Our twenty year old history loving daughter and her friend were captivated. I would highly recommend Caterina.

We loved the city tour of historical Florence with Caterina! She is an amazing guide who is passionate about her work. We learned a lot about the city, its history, art etc. and found the tour very interesting. Caterina even gave us great tips on what else to visit and where to eat in Florence. Thank you!

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!
