Book with Elena. You'll be glad you did!!

Nel febbraio 2023 io e mio marito abbiamo fatto 2 tour privati ​​di Firenze con Elena. È venuta a prenderci al nostro hotel e ci ha offerto due dei MIGLIORI tour che abbiamo mai fatto in Europa.
Oltre ad avere una vasta conoscenza della storia e dell'arte di Firenze, è incredibilmente affascinante e divertente. e si vede che ama profondamente la sua città. Abbiamo imparato tanto e abbiamo apprezzato immensamente la sua compagnia.
Quest'anno l'ho contattata con molte domande e chiedendole di trovarci un autista da Montecatini Terme a Firenze, dove alloggerò con il mio coro dalla California. Ha risposto a ogni domanda e ci ha organizzato un autista per due giorni diversi a giugno.
Non esito a consigliarla. Avrai un'esperienza meravigliosa.
Grazie per la tua gentilezza, Elena.

See Florence Come Alive

Elena è una guida turistica straordinaria per Firenze, siamo stati così fortunati ad averla per il nostro tour a piedi di 4 ore a maggio. Ha una grande conoscenza della città, condivide fatti interessanti dietro ogni angolo e la sua personalità brillante ed energica fa davvero rivivere Firenze.

Firenze è una città estremamente caotica e piena di turisti, ma è riuscita a portarci nelle strade più tranquille e a tenerci lontani dalla folla. Lo abbiamo davvero apprezzato perché a nessuno di noi piacciono le folle. È piuttosto brillante in quello che fa e sembra che le piaccia farlo. Impari molto di più avendo una guida turistica privata. Ha anche condiviso alcuni punti ristoro e negozi unici. Dille cosa vuoi fare o vedere e lei ti porterà lì e altro ancora! Consiglio vivamente Elena. Prenotala adesso se puoi!

Amazing Private Walking Tour

Elena has a special gift of from the start of the correspondence to when the tour starts to gauge a person's interest and take you in that direction.
Her knowledge and enthusiasm for all things Florence is profound.
She took us to places such as the world's oldest pharmacy where her description of the history while inhaling the pleasant smells were a highlight.
At the Accademia, Elena sat with us and described the historical significance of the unfinished sculpture's leading up to David while everyone rushed past to get to David.
Thank you, Elena, to making our time in Florence more special and memorable.

Grazie Kyle!It is always a gift for us to receive such special feedbacks! We wait for you in Florence for the reopening of the Vasari Corridor! A presto! Ele, Francesca, Ilaria

Private tour of Pitti Palace

Perfect tour. A chance to concentrate on several highlights of the palace and then see the Boboli gardens. On a separate day, we had a very special your of Oltrano including gardens not typically open to the public and special artisan and artists' studios in San Niccolò we would have missed on our own. Elena's passion and vivacious approach to life bring Florence to life and we loved working with her.

Discoveries Off the Beaten Path

When friends ask, “How was your trip to Tuscany?” it is top of mind to celebrate our time with Elena as the highlight. While collaborating on the custom itinerary in advance of travel, Elena offered a beautiful balance of optimism and candor. In response to our request for off-the-beaten-path encounters, she seamlessly delivered more than any of us could have imagined. Elena was perceptive and observant, offering a well-timed education about art, history, and folklore while on the move. Her gracious, tenacious energy guided the tone for a robust three-hour walking tour. Even those familiar with Florence were pleasantly surprised by the fresh view and new connections made along the way. Thank you Elena for facilitating an engaging discovery of Florence! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Waling Tour of Florence with Elena

Seeing Florence through Elena's eyes was an amazing and memorable experience! Our group of 5 was in Florence for a very short overnight stay on our way to Chianni, Tuscany. Elena suggested a walking tour so we would get the best overview of this beautiful city. Elena is passionate about Florence and its history, beauty and "curiosities"! In addition, she welcomed our group with kindness and fun...we feel we made a new friend in just 3 hours! Thank you, Elena, for treating us to a spectacular morning in Florence. You made us fall in love with Florence...we will be back!

Walking Tour of Florence with Elena

Elena provided a wonderful walking tour of Florence to my friends and I (5 of us). It was an experience I shall never forget. Elena treated us like royalty, was very informative and personable. It made us feel like a member of the family was guiding us.. She walked us through so many magnificent places, while at the same time keeping us away from tourist traffic. Elena provided history and insights to all that surrounded us. I highly recommend using her services. I surely will be back!

THE LAST MASTERPIECE - Book by Laura Morelli

Among the acknowledgements of the book "THE LAST MASPERPIECE - A novel of World War II" you can read at page 395:

"Elena Fulceri was my eyes, ears and feet in Florence during the global pandemic, when I couldn't be there myself. She got me into those hidden repositories in the Tuscan countryside and arranged important resourses for me in advance of my arrival. I could't have asked for a better assistant. Thanks to everyone at the various privately owned Tuscan depots who opened access for me."

It was a true honor to work on a special archival research for the American novelist Laura Morelli. She gave me the opportunity to find documents which gave a different perspective on the artworks that I share with every visitor at the Uffizi Gallery and in small art sites around the city. Thank you Laura!!!! II look forward to your next visit to Florence!

Secret Garden tour

Elena, So sorry it has taken me this long to write you but since we left you it was a total whirlwind!  I'll spare you the daily step counts but trust me--we covered a lot of Florence, including my purchase of gloves and olive oil. But, most importantly, I want to tell you how much we enjoyed our time with you. Your enthusiasm is contagious, your knowledge is infinite and your love of your home is very evident (for very good reasons.) We have had a chance to visit other places with private guides but we both felt our time with you was the best one ever. I'm still thinking about that spectacular garden and I wasn't kidding--when we return to your city we should have some wine with you and the brilliant mind who created a present-day Eden.
Thanks, too for the pictures--great memories for sure.
Take care and we will meet again, I know.
Susan B.
