In the morning, one of our expert Florence Tour guides will take you on a walking tour through the streets and piazzas of Florence to discuss the ideas of the Renaissance, the lives of many famous artists, the Medici family who showered Florence with countless masterpieces, and how life changed forever during this epic period of the history of Florence. In-between the famous landmarks, we'll take enchanting back-streets and alleys paved with the original stones from ancient times. Here, we'll discover lesser known attractions that will help weave together the complex and rich history of the city and provide our guests with a more intimate experience of Florence.

We'll pause to admire the Ponte Vecchio and to discuss the history and role of the oldest surviving bridge crossing the river Arno. As we enter the Piazza della Signoria, after admiring Vasari's Corridor from the exterior, we'll enter Dante's old neighborhood. After enjoying a walk through the historical centre of Florence we arrive at the Accademia Gallery, home to Florence 's most treasured work of art - "Michelangelo's David". After enjoying an in-depth discussion of David, we'll also have time to admire "Michelangelo's Slaves". A series of breath-taking sculptures of original captives of the stone who writhe, struggle and turn, forever attempting to free themselves from their rigid marble blocks.

After a fascinating walking tour of Florence, one of our local expert driver guides will drive you, via a splendid viewpoint of Florence, up into the neighbouring Chianti wine region where you can visit a local restaurant known only to the locals for an optional lunch. Following a relaxing lunch, during which you can plan the rest of the day with your driver guide, you'll spend the rest of the day visiting a winery to enjoy a full wine tasting of the local Chianti wines, explore medieval hill towns off-the-beaten-track, driving along scenic back-roads, or perhaps visiting the enchanting hill town of Imprugneta to marvel at the Terracotta creations of the local artisans.

The Chianti region tour was outstanding. We ended up being the only ones on the tour so it was more like a private tour than a group tour. Our guide (Yaris) was excellent and very knowledgable about the area and the wine. He even arranged for us to eat our lunch (that we brought ourselves- we’re Vegan) in one of the dining rooms at the winery. It was a very enjoyable day and would definitely use your company again!

Enjoyed our time - our tour guide was excellent. The cost of the private tour was well worth it. It gave us a strong overview of the city and helped us make the most of our time there.
