    Climbing to the top of the dome was an incredible way to see views of the city, and of course the artwork of the dome.

    The art itself is intense, a lot going on in those scenes.... The stairs could be quite narrow in some areas, but overall the climb wasn't too bad. The only downfall is having people who are crowding around while trying to climb. This was a perfect way to spend a day while it was raining outside.

    Worth every penny just for the veiws. You can see the whole of venice from a great hight. You take a lift to the top and then you can stay up there as long as you want. We had to go but I would recommend staying till closing time just to see the sunset go down over venice.

    We stumbled upon this while walking through Florence. We watched the game where the former players get to go out for one game.
    It was so much fun. Something so different than American sports and it was great to see the pride each person had for their neighborhood!!
    If this even is happening while in Florence, you MUST go!

    Sienna and San Gimignano were the best part of the toor. It’s a day trip that one should not miss while visiting Florence. The tour guide Manolo was very helpful, enjoyable, sharing a lot of knowledge about the trip and the rest of the nearby country. The driver Nando drove us carefully back all those miles and was really kind.
    The whole tour was well organized with a lot of info available. I would definitely do another trip with them.

    We agree a MUST DO ACTIVITY!! John, the owner, was very enthusiastic and really covers all the bases with you and your group. The route is great and really gives you a nice variety, villages, vistas, orchards etc. Great views, places for photos and great places to stop--I would recommend you follow John's suggested stops for snacks, views and lunch. We are a family of six with 4 teens and they all said it was the best part of our trip to Italy--pretty high praise! Enjoy, and thank you John.

    I took a private tour with Sonia and it has been one of the highlights of our trip to Florence. My mom and I learned so much about art and history with her that I will highly recommend her services. We did the tour in Spanish and it can be done in English as well. Sonia is not only very knowledge but also kind, warm and fun. Thank you Sonia!!

    My husband and I had a wonderful Chianti Classico bike tour. Elena was great with setting up the tour and Piero provided support and was an excellent tour guide making sure we had everything needed for a comfortable and successful ride. The highlight of our trip was Costello Di Brolio, a magnificent structure made more special by Piero’s knowledge of the history of this strategically important location in the wars between Florence and Siena, as well as during WWII. I would highly recommend taking a day to bicycle the region and see the beauty of the area in a healthy and fun way. Elena and Piero will make sure you have everything you need.

    Had a great experience with Michel this past September. We rented a Vespa for a day+ and had the best time going from Fiesole down to San Gimignano (highly recommend). He was great in setting up the scooter and giving directions and was very flexible on the return .... Thanks Michel!!!

    Done lots of escape rooms and the first was so good we did both. Very challenging, but not "stupid confusing" like where you have to make totally not obvious leaps. All the clues were super clear once you figured them out. Probably one of the best put together escape rooms I've done in awhile!

    We did a Tuscany vespa tour through the Chianti hills close to Florence and we loved it!
    We liked the tour because it was safe and staff really cared about that too. The landscapes were beautiful and our guide Ben made it super enjoyable, fun and full of interesting facts.
    We would definitely reccomend

    My family and I spent a 1/2 day traveling from Florence to Fiana to an amazing vineyard where we received a tour, helped the Nonna cook a fabulous meal, tasted wonderful wine, and then feasted on our meal. It was my favorite day on our vacation in Italy. Our driver/tour guide, Alexa, was the best! She made the experience both fun and insightful and encouraged everyone to participate. 5 Stars!!!

    It exceeded my expectations by so many miles! The car is in mint condition, the guide was very patient and professional throughout the whole drive, the road and sceneries where breathtaking. We ended at Villa San Michele which was sooo pretty and fancy. Honestly, this was worth every dollar. Something to check off my bucket list. Even though my wife did not want to drive, she also agrees that this was a very cool thing to do.

    Firstly it’s worth noting we did this in Italian, and I’m not sure it can be done in English, but if you have someone Italian with you who can translate it should be ok for you.

    We found it very good, and very scary! Really liked the effort and detail put into the rooms. Was incredibly complex which is fun (not too easy) but they include red herrings to throw you off which can waste a lot of time and you can’t really know if it’s supposed to be solved or not, which was a little annoying but didn’t ruin the experience.

    The staff were super friendly very scary, and made things really fun for us!

    Thanks for having us :)
