Private tour guide Katerina

Katerina P.

Florence, FI, Italy

Hi there and welcome to my profile. My name is Katerina, and I'm a licensed guide of Florence, the most beautiful city in the world.

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 was always prompt and accessible with emails prior to our visit. She tailored the tour to our requests and took into account that we were traveling with a baby and last minute adjustments may need to be made. We totally enjoyed our time with her. She is very knowledgeable in the arts of Florence and answered our many questions. She communicated well with us and was attentive. I'd rate her 5 stars!. Thanks Katerina.
