It would by my pleasure to reveal it to you.
More than fifteen years ago I graduated from the faculty of history of Moscow State University, where the art of Renaissance has become my passion and love. After a great journalist experience, years of editing and writing about fashion, I have decided to get back to my roots, to the history and art. My love story with the city of Florence has brought me here, to the homeland of such genius as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and others, where I decided to settle down. It's been over ten years since I have moved myself here, the city of endless civilization, culture and art of Renaissance.
Florence is full of fine arts, amazing architecture, painting and literature, which deserve to be recognized by the visitors of the city. Once I moved, I've decided to go ahead with history — so I continued my studies to get the profession of tourist guide. It took me a few years, and it was hard to obtain the degree, but it's worth it. The license permits me to work in English as well as in Russian and Italian.
I accept private groups up to 6-7 persons. I can offer you you individual route through the city and it's museums at a suitable time for you. Private excursions are not limited by a usual monotonous program, it considers easy communication with a guide, it gives an opportunity to ask questions and dive into curious details that you won't get on the group excursions. All tours of mine are flexible.
I'll be happy to guide you through the most beautiful city in the world where the phenomenon of the Renaissance was born.
A Recent Review of this guide
Katerina's love and enthusiasm for Florence was evident from the start of our tour where she graciously met us at the train station. From there, she led us on an educational and entertaining tour focusing on our interests and questions while showing us as many highlights as our time together allowed. We thoroughly enjoyed not only the most recognizable highlights of Florence but Katerina led us down corridors and passageways from Florence's distinguished past. Our tour with Katerina was excellent.
