"Hi Fabrizio,
now that we’re back home, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the most excellent service that we received during our guided tours of Rome, Florence and the Chianti region. Your guides were cordial, engaging and VERY knowledgeable. We had a most entertaining and educational experience. We especially enjoyed the Chianti tour with Fabrizio, who was very engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. Likewise, the Vatican and the Uffizzi were both outstanding, though I have to take a moment to single out the young lady who guided us through Florence and the Uffizzi Galleries. Her knowledge and manner were unforgettable. I felt like we had a university course in Art History. She was truly exceptional and stood out in a very polished collection of tour guides. Thanks again. Best regards"

Our 6-hour private driving tour is for you to discover one of the most famous cities in Italy.
Florence is well known as the center of the greatest works of art and most beautiful buildings in the world. Experience the diversity of this city with the assistance of an informative and attentive tour-manager.



The car will pick you up at your hotel in Florence, Siena and the whole area of Tuscany.
Florence was the cradle of Renaissance culture. Through the patronage of the Medici court,
the city became the home of artists and people
of letters. It was certainly the cultural reference point of the 15th and 16th centuries.
During the 13th and 14th centuries, a number of illustrious people were recognized in every
endeavor. Giotto, Cimabue, Arnolfo di Cambio and Orcagna left behind their masterpieces in the city
of Lily. These provided a model for the entire world of Tuscan and Italian art. You will start your visit at Santa Maria del Fiore, the masterpiece of Filippo
Brunelleschi, who built it between 1420 and 1434.
The original project of the Cathedral was the work of Arnolfo di Cambio, who began its construction in 1296.
Piazza della Signoria will be a short ride from the Church. It was the Medieval town planners who were responsible for the development of the historic city center of Florence.
Palazzo della Signoria, also known as Palazzo Vecchio, situated on a corner of the Piazza itself,
was initially built as the seat of the Priori delle Arti,
the heads of guilds. It was subsequently deemed to be the seat of the Medici government by Cosimo I.
We'll then reach the Ponte Vecchio, one of the most famous bridges in the world and the most
ancient in Florence. It has existed since the 10th century, although the original structure was destroyed by a flood of the Arno River in 1333.
Your guide-driver will also take you to Filippo Brunelleschi's Palazzo Pitti. It is the largest and most monumental of the palaces in Florence. Historically,
the Uffizi Museum building is a typically
16th century scenographic conception. Vasari designed this building in 1560 for Cosimo I.
We'll then reach Accademia Gallery Palace, founded by Grand-Duke Pietro Leopoldo in 1784.
This Palace was enlarged and reorganized in the last century. Lunch will be served in a typical Florentine restaurant.
Afterwards, we'll complete our tour with the ever popular Piazzale Michelangelo, which has the best panoramic view of the city.


The driving tour is for a party of up to 8 people,
and it includes private car transfers,
and a fluent, English speaking tour-manager.
