Dearest Maria You made my recent visit to Lucca One of the most wonderful experiences of my travels. Your enthusiasm for the history. the buildings ,the people of Lucca was totally inspiring. Your sense of fun and kindness was wonderful to experience. And then when we thought it could not get any better, you took us to your beautiful home full of colour and art and gave us the most wonderful lunch. We will be back and thank you again for every moment that you spent with us.

Hello Maria Thank you so much for everything you did to give us such a lovely, interesting day yesterday. We did appreciate that you did not rush us around though it did make a very long day for you and not much fun driving in the rain. And we are so glad you introduced us to Volterra too, both the beautiful town and the amazing Roman remains. San Gimignano was everything and more than I had hoped for - Gozzoli especially!

Trento, 26 dicembre 2015 Prot. 30415 - Circ. 10.15 Ciao a tutti. Passato un bel Natale? In dodici lo abbiamo trascorso con ancora negli occhi e nel cuore la bellissima trasferta a Lucca, ospitati in un suggestivo B&B nel cuore delle mura cittadine e accolti con calore inatteso da Maurizio Vanni, direttore artistico del Lu.C.C.A. e da Maria Curto che ci hanno guidati sapientemente e con entusiasmo tra i tesori della città. Per non dire delle magiche sensazioni che, tra i tavoli del ristorante L'Imbuto ci hanno regalato (!) i piatti dello chef stellato Cristiano Tomei e lo svelarcene i segreti da parte di sua moglie Laura....che giornate!!!

Cara Maria, Grazie ancora per gli splendidi tre giorni trascorsi a Lucca, dove ci hai guidato con il cuore e l'anima alla scoperta degli angoli più incantevoli e suggestivi di questa città ricca di storia e bellezze artistiche. La tua competenza e professionalità ci ha permesso di condensare in tre giorni anche la visita di alcuni luoghi caratteristici dei dintorni dandoci modo di inquadrare nel suo complesso questa città che unisce, mare, monte e cultura. Arrivederci alla prossima occasione e non mancheremo di consigliarti ai nostri amici e conoscenti.


(Australia - 08/18/15)

Dear Maria, We really appreciated the extra lengths you went to, to ensure we had an enjoyable time exploring the less touristic parts of town. You are a wonderful warm host and an informative interesting tour guide. We loved that lovely little gem of a winery in the countryside. The food was so fresh and lovely and of course the wine was delicious and people so friendly and obliging. I have recommended you to my friends if they are going to Lucca. If we are lucky enough to come back we will definitely be in touch. Thanks again, Frances & Tim

We booked a Lucca by night walking tour through the Tourist Office and we were lucky enough to get Maria and to have her to ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed wondering around listening to Maria's stories of Lucca and its history. She is relaxed, charming and aknowledgeable. Highly recommended.


(Toronto, Canada - 06/17/15)

We feel blessed to have met you as we very much enjoyed our time with you and wanted to pass along our sincerest appreciation for the tours....Your knowledge and passion and your gift for sharing the stories and history of Lucca is superb. Also your English is impeccable.

Whilst staying in Lucca we decided to book a local winery tour through our hotel. From the moment we met Maria we felt like we had known her forever. Maria took us to a lovely winery where we tasted a number of different wines and enjoyed a lovely lunch consisting of local produce and amazing pasta. Maria guided us through each item and explained all of the wines to us in a very interesting and informative fashion. Our day was completed with a visit to an amazing Gelateria where we ate the most delicious Gelati. A fabulous day out. We would highly recommend Maria as a guide and would certainly look her up if we were lucky enough to return to Lucca in the future. Thanks Maria!

On our last day in Italy, we visited a beautiful winery near Lucca, and Maria helped to make the day one of the most memorable of the entire trip. Her easy-going, friendly personality made us feel relaxed, and we enjoyed learning a lot of local history with her. We tried the excellent local food and wine, and the whole day was like a small garden party with new friends. We completely loved Lucca, and we hope to visit again someday. If we do, we will contact Maria to learn even more and have another great experience. Brava! Thank you!


(Italy - 11/18/14)

Maria, thanks so much for the beautiful experience! I loved it, every single minute. And it was so well organized. It must have been such a hard job arranging everything: people, visits, hosting families!! As far as I'm concerned everything was perfect! You're really good at your job.


(Milano - Italia - 11/17/14)

Sono titolare di un’enoteca a Milano, e organizzo spesso per i miei clienti delle gite con degustazione nelle aziende agricole del territorio italiano. Su suggerimento di un’amica ho contattato Maria per visitare Montecarlo, un comune della lucchesia in cui si produce l’omonimo DOC. Si è messa in contatto con un’azienda vinicola, presso la quale abbiamo visitato i vigneti e la cantina, non prima di aver fatto una piacevolissima visita guidata nel borgo di Montecarlo. Dopo di che abbiamo degustato i vini e pranzato nella casa vinicola, e prima di ripartire per Milano abbiamo fatto un veloce tour a Lucca. I miei clienti ricordano tutt’ora la piacevolissima gita, in particolare la professionalità e simpatia di Maria.


(Italia - 11/17/14)

La mia prima visita a Lucca è stata interamente organizzata da Maria: il bed & breackfast in cui alloggiare, i migliri posti in cui mangiare - non solo a pranzo o cena, ma anche le merende nei caffè migliori -. La visita guidata all’interno della città è stata istruttiva, interessantissima e divertente, così come il giro delle mura in bicicletta che mi ha consigliato di fare. Mi ha portato anche nei borghi dei dintorni, e indicato gli eventi culturali più interessanti di quel periodo. Da allora ogni volta che decido di tornare a Lucca mi rivolgo a lei, perché ha sempre qualcosa di nuovo da mostrare. E poi la simpatia e professionalità di Maria sono impareggiabili!


(UK - 11/15/14)

Dear Maria thank you so much for the beautiful tour you organised back in October. Everything was great: the tour of Lucca and of the villas nearby, the accomodation (is everybody so friendly in Lucca?), the small restaurants serving such delicious food and WINE. thanks to your historical knowledge of Lucca ,we fell in love with this beautiful town!


(Italia - 10/24/14)

Maria vedendo il tuo sito sono rimasta colpita, ma dopo averti conosciuta nel tour perugino di domenica scorsa confermo tutto il mio entusiasmo.


(USA - 10/13/14)

Maria gave us the BEST tour experience we could have asked for. Initially we thought it was just going to be your normal wine tasting, but Maria made it so much more! She took us to the best gelato we had during our entire trip, a bike tour around Lucca including historical information and local knowledge, followed by a final drink in the town center where we learned more about Tuscany. If you are looking to really understand Lucca, Tuscan history and Italian culture, I urge you to setup a tour with Maria. Grazie Mille, Maria!


(USA - 10/13/14)

We can't thank you enough for the wonderful tours. You made our trip so very special. We love Lucca and we hope to get back before too long. I shared yr name with Gaia at 'LA ROMEA' in Lucca and told her what a wonderful tour guide you were for us. I told her you were the best guide we have had!


(Italia - 10/03/14)

Grazie Maria.....mi hai fatto "assaporare" l'anima di Lucca e dintorni...con il tuo infinito cuore e passione per quello che fai ...


(Svizzera - 10/01/14)

È statta una giornata meravigliosa quella che abbiamo passato con Maria. Abbiamo iniziato con un giro delle Mura monumentali in bicicletta . La mattina sembrava grigia e uggiosa, ma salita la rampa il cielo si è aperto e abbiamo goduto di un'aria frizzante e di soste qui e là scoprendo i segreti di questa meravigliosa cittadina, Maria li conosce tutti ed è felice di condividerli con i suoi ospiti. Un piccolo cafffè di mezza mattina ci ha aiutati ad affrontare le bellezze di Villa Torrigiani, dove siamo stati portati da Maria stessa con la sua simpatica automobile. Abbiamo finito con un glorioso pranzo in un'azienda turistica in una valletta deliziosa a soli 5 km dalle mura cittadine. Da soli non avremmo mai saputo trovare il modo di visitare quei luoghi potendoli scoprire con Maria nei loro lati meno conosciuti. Grazie allora Maria, torneremo presto a Lucca , probabilmente in Inverno per godere della città anche nella stagione freddae scoprire con te altri suoi angoli .


(USA - 09/30/14)

Great tour at Lucca. Thank you Maria for your gorgeous guided tour.
