Walking by Famous City Sites
Stroll around the wealthy city framework of Florence and get a taste of the breathtaking city with a Florence Walking Tour. This tour explores the city's historic and architectural evolution from the Roman foundation to the city's glorious Renaissance which led to modern day Florence. Walk through periods of Michelangelo's and Leonardo’s works, and relive the medieval centuries as you pass by the city's top attractions.
Taking leisurely walks around Florence is a must, but we dare say that a bike tour is one of the best ways to meet the city -- with a local, like a local. Ride your way in and out of narrow streets with the Florence Bike Tour to see major city sites like the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signiora and Piazza della Repubblica. Or if you feel like you want to bike out of Florence's cobblestone streets, the Tuscany Bike Tour from Florence will take you to the cool breeze of the Tuscan countryside, where you'll ride past romantic olive groves, vineyards, medieval castles, and hillside villa estates.
No trip to Tuscany would be complete without having a taste of its viticulture, perfect after you've been dizzied by the astonishing Florentine cityscape. Not too far from the city, you can experience the splendor of Tuscany with a Small-Group Tuscany Wine-Tasting Tour from Florence. This tour takes you along the Tuscan countryside, slowly luring you in with its lush green hills and vineyards before you arrive to Chianti, home to the world-famous red Chianti wines. Your sommelier guide will take care of you at two different wineries, after which you'll enjoy lunch and then visit one of the regions beautiful medieval towns or hamlets.
For a unique experience in Tuscany, you'll want to explore in a nontraditional manner that allows you to truly feel like one with the landscape. To do so, the Horse Riding in Chianti Day Trip offers the opportunity to ride all the way from Florence to the famous Chianti region in a horse caravan.
