This tour is designed to provide our clients with an easily paced experience with the art and history of Florence – some known and some rarely visited – with opportunities to enjoy meals on their one in any of Florence’s exceptional restaurants or trattorias. A private guide is with the group each day in the city and provides unique insights for our clients. We spend one day visiting the gorgeous Tuscan walled city of Siena, as well.
For everyone who loves Italy, art lover or no, this is a unique opportunity to experience a relaxing and easily paced visit to the open air museum that is Florence.
Our lovely and secluded luxury hotel is located steps from the Piazza San Marco in the city center of Florence. Modern accommodations include full breakfast buffet, internet computer in lobby and library for client use, wireless access in every room, air conditioning and exceptional front desk support. The hotel’s excellent location offers clients easy walks to the Piazzas Repubblica and Duomo, as well as all of the historic sites in the city center. Florence is a city to be explored at all hours of the day and night; from sunrises from above the city at Piazzale Michelangelo to sunsets reflecting on the Ponte Vecchio from the Ponte Santa Trinita, the texture and gold-infused light of the city adds greater dimension to our client’s experiences in this cradle of western art and history; bella Firenze.
Late afternoons each day are open for clients to explore and shop in the city on their own. Recommendations for places to visit and/or places to find the best values in the city are available from Private Italy Tours Ltd staff.
