We were a party of 8. We were picked up at our hotel by Andrea in a private van. It was a wonderful day! We visited small towns and a winery for lunch. It was a very full day! We never would have been able to do this on our own.

Andrea is an amazing tour guide. He has a PhD in Art History, and is an amazing wealth of knowledge, both of Florentine history, but also of Florence and Tuscany. He took us to lots of villages and towns outside of Florence, all more charming than the next. He took us, on three different occasions, to wine tastings and pairings... More

We booked a private tour through Tuscany and our tour guide, Andrea, was fantastic! From stopping for coffee and for shots of amazing scenery, to educating and informing us about the Tuscany region, we were delighted to have him as our guide. Our tour included a visit to San Gimignano, and two great wineries. It was about 7 hours in... More

Arranged this tour of Cinque Terre as an alternative to a DCL-organized tour. Arrangements easily made on the web site, and emails about changes to our cruise/arrival port-of-call and timing quickly answered. Andrea made the day for my family of 6 including teens and grandmother memorable! Quick stop in Pisa before the crowds, animated discussion of Italy, Tuscany, and the... More

We organised this tour last minute wanting to get out into the Tuscan country side with the half day we had free. It turned out to be the perfect 1/2 day escape from Florence we were hoping for. Our tour guide's name was Luca and he was very friendly and informative and spoke great English.  He took us first to... More

First stop was a Sunflower field which was absolutely stunning. Lots of photos were taken. Next was San Gimignano which was a quaint... More

We had such a fantastic time on our day tour in the Chianti region of Tuscany! Andrea picked us up promptly at our hotel in a nice air conditioned van. He brought along his daughter who was just lovely. Before hitting the wineries, we made a first stop at San Gimignano, where we spent about an hour. It was so... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
