We were on a mission: My teenage daughter had a term paper on Michelangelo and I booked Francesca to lead us on his footsteps.The wisest move I made on our trip; she helped us understand the background, what made him different and special by taking us to all the right places explaining in great intriguing and entertaining detail before visiting David in Accademia. She is very sweet and knowledgeable and we had a great time and the term paper turned out brilliantly. Oh, if she makes a restaurant recommendation, definitely go – we had a very delightful dinner!

Francesca is great guide. We took a half day tour and saw more on that tour than we had seen on full day tours in the past. She is very knowledgeable and is easy to understand. We take a lot of tours, either private or small groups and she is one of the best.

Fantastic Florence tour: with Francesca is just that!
Francesca Papi offers private tours of Florence that she designs around the ages and interests of the participants. Her immense knowledge of history and art in the museums is juxtaposed by fascinating street tours of small neighborhoods and great restaurant recommendations. She was also the most reasonably priced by a long shot. And the most fun!
