Francesca met us at the train in Vicenza for a walking tour of the central city, including the Teatro Olympico. She was an excellent guide, engaged and knowledgeable. We took a cab to Villa Rotundo, toured there, and she arranged a taxi for the afternoon to Villa Barbara, over an hour drive from Vicenza; so, we had her from 9:30 to 6:30, and it was very enjoyable, including a stop at Bassano del Grappa, and some WWI and WWII history. We all (party of 4) recommend her highly. Mark Epstein

Very Professional, very well-informed and a pleasure to send the time with -very flexible but with superb attention to both "very broad picture" and very interesting historical and architectural detailed information -Great..!
We enjoyed our tour with Francesca very much. Only quibble would be that she did not check with us at the beginning as to our options. We enjoyed the tour but might have made some other choices had we been given them. She really knows her stuff.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to see that you enjoyed our time together, while doing the itinerary of the tour that was selected by you, among my proposals, which gave you the opportunity of enjoying all the highlights of my city in the time you had. I hope that my suggestions at the end of the tour about how you could spend the afternoon and the further sights you could see were helpful to you, I trust you had an enjoyable afternoon!

Francesca made it possible for us to see Vicenza's highlights, have a wonderful lunch, and then visit two local villas on a second tour. In one day we saw more and learned more than many of our friends managed in a much longer stay. She knew where major works of art were during building restoration and helped us see them. Her knowledge of both historical and contemporary art and life in Vicenza and her ability to put everything in context was amazing. We recommend her without reservation.
