Thank you so much for the wonderful time & tour we had with you this September ! Stumbling upon the mosaic workshop was a highlight of the tour.
I am looking forward to coming back and engaging your expertise again, as well as recommending you to all I know who are going to Florence - Francesca makes it even more Fantastic !!
Take care,

Hi Francesca,
We have made it back to Chicago! I just wanted to thank you again for your time during our visit to Florence. Both Jade and Kai enjoyed you and your stories tremendously. I really think you are great for families in general and hope your business thrives!
We hope to return to Florence for some of the more unusual museums we missed.
Best, Tammy

Francesca es una persona maravillosa, habla muy bien español y sabe mucho sobre Florencia. Fueron tres horas de paseo pero parecieron mucho mas por todo lo que nos mostró y nos contó. Paseamos por Florencia el 8/10/15.

Dear Francesca,

Thank you for a wonderful and insightful tour of the Pitti Palace. Even though my wife and I had been there before we saw the Palace and the Medici family in a whole new light. Also thank you for setting up our tour of the Vasari Corridor. My wife and I will be back.

Visitare Firenze vuol dire innamorarsi perdutamente della sua magia. Visitare Firenze per un gruppo di persone non vedenti, però, può risultare arduo. Per il nostro gruppo non è stato così. Aver avuto Francesca Papi come guida lo scorso 02 maggio 2014, ci ha permesso di vedere con gli occhi del cuore e della fantasia le meraviglie della città. Le sue spiegazioni, semplici e pur tuttavia competenti ed approfondite, ci hanno fatto toccare con mano lo splendore dei monumenti. Estremamente attenta e sensibile, Francesca è stata per noi una compagna piacevole e competente. Grazie Francesca, alla prossima. UICI Bari

"Bringing History to Life". My husband and I had a private tour of the magical city of Florence with Francesca. She brought the past to life if you will with her in depth knowledge of the history & arts of HER city which she is so proud of as she can be!! Our tour consisted of a walking morning tour of the city covering the highlights and some hidden gems as well. We ended the tour by going into the Academia to see the original David. If you are pressed for time as we were I strongly recommend having a private tour and to be guided through the streets...thank you Francesca.

Dear Francesca, A little late in writing to thank you for a wonderful tour for our group on July 23, 2014! Our experience with you was absolutely perfect-nothing left undone. The entire group of 12 were so happy that we planned this tour with you as our guide. Comments were made that not only were you a delightful person, you are extremely knowledgeable about your subject and made it really interesting. I hope to do another tour with you one of these days and would be happy to be a reference for you. Best

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!
