Milan is often overlooked by visitors as an industrial town - not pretty like Florence or Venice. It's true - to find Milan's beauty you do need to look for it, and our guide, Raphaella provided a wonderful commentary to help us see the history, culture and life in this magical city of design! Seeing past the surface, we started to see the rich history and centuries of life, even through the darker winter afternoon sky.
Seeing "The Last Supper" - the 15 minutes allowed to each group - was magical. Not long enough, but full of moments to enjoy this incredible piece of da Vinci's artistry. This tour will help bring Milan to life, as its history opens before you.
One of the best things of Florence is wandering the streets and alleys, the lane ways, and discovering another piazza, some history, or daily life. This tour offered a well-delivered conversation with all in the group about the history of the streets we were walking, bringing the stories to life.
A thoroughly interesting and accessible way to start to understand some of the history that shaped this magic city.
Although slightly mis-named, the trip provided an afternoon tour to some of the local countryside near Florence, covering more than 1,000 years of local lore and history including miracles, poverty and sainthood, conspiracy, murder and intrigue, love, hard work and success.
The venue for the wine tasting, Castello del Trebbio, was not only beautiful but colourful, and the wine delicious. If you have a few days in Florence and want to do something out of town, this is a delightful way to spend an afternoon.
We had a wonderful morning - fabulous weather helped - but this tour provided the chance to slow down a bit after a busy week exploring Paris and see a very different side of the city. The details of history were mixed with local colour and characters. Thanks for a wonderfulu time!
