"Hi Fabrizio
w e would like to thank you for the excellent service rendered during our stay in Florence and Rome last week. The family members who arrived at Milan/Malpensa from Atlanta were picked up without delay and comfortably
transferred to Florence. Marco gave us all a wonderful one day tour around Tuscany, and Rosa was the perfect
guide for our Florence sightseeing. Also, thank you for your personal, professional sighseeing guidance at the Vatican,
and the good restaurants you suggested and which we all enjoyed.
Best regards"

This is an 11-hour private excursion to visit one of the
most celebrated cities in Italian history. Florence was the
center of the Italian Renaissance.



Your car will pick you up at your
hotel in Rome. After a pleasant drive through the marvelous, hilly landscapes of Umbria and
Tuscany, you'll reach the regional capital.
Florence lies on both banks of the Arno River. The larger and busier section lies on the right
bank, and spreads out to the base of the hills of Fiesole.
You will begin your visit at the most prestigious and important monument, the Cathedral of
Santa Maria del Fiore. It is situated in the religious center of the city. The elegant Baptistry is
noteworthy because of its exterior revestment. The white marble is from Carrara and the green marble
is from Prato. It is, therefore, a typical example of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany. You'll
then reach the Palazzo della Signoria. The oldest portion was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, and
dates back to the beginning of the 13th century. The construction of the building was protracted for
more than two centuries, with a series of additions. Your driver-guide will suggest
where to have a typical Florentine steak
in order to be in good shape for your next visit.
In fact, our next stop will be the Church of Santa Croce and the Ponte Vecchio. This bridge is
the most famous in the world and the most ancient in the city. There, on both sides, you will find a
vast array of fine jewelry. Piazzale Michelangelo will be our final stop with the most breathtaking
and unforgettable panoramic view of Florence.


The excursion is for a party of up to 15 people
and includes private car transfers
and a fluent, English speaking tour-manager.
