Chianti Region Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
It was nice to get out of the city and into the beautiful mountains near Florence. One of the bad things of this tour was the group itself - it was huge! Way too many people. I would have liked it to be less. We booked a lot of tours and this was by far the biggest group we had. Also the tour felt a little quick. You basically get to Castle, take a quick tour, go to the wine tasting area, taste some wine and then go to the shop and then it's time to go back to Florence. So it felt a little hurried. The real highlight of this tour was definitely the beautiful scenery.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia and Uffizi Gallery Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Basically the only highlight of the Accademia is of course Michelangelos David. It is quite amazing. I liked that these 2 tours had a big gap between both of them; that way we had the afternoon to shop and have lunch. Uffizi Gallery is beautiful. It's so overwhelming and it's amazing to see all the masterpieces. Our tour guides for both were very informative as well so that was a plus.

Florence City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We did the bus tour on our first day in Florence which is a nice way to get acquainted with the city. They give you a little headphone thing and you just plug it in and there's a recording telling you about the history of the place you're passing by which was really cool. Be sure to take the bus that takes you up to the Piazzale Michelangelo up on a hill; the views of the city are absolutely breathtaking from there.

Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I really liked this tour and our tour guide was very informative. She really did a good job taking us to the highlights of the museum, that way we wouldn't miss the important stuff. She was very attentive as well, asking us if we were tired and wanted to take a quick rest; the museum is very big. I think visiting the Vatican Museum as well as the Sistine Chapel is definitely a must when in Rome and this is probably the best way to do it.

Papal Audience Ticket at Vatican City

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Seeing the Pope was an amazing experience. I think if i would have know I would have just got the tickets on my own, which are free by the way and made my way over to the Vatican myself. Yes we were picked up from our hotel but it's so easy to navigate through Rome. I could have easily made it to Vatican City without being picked up. The bus also drops you off down the street from Vatican Cty so you still have to walk over to the entrance. Once we got there the line was soo big and there's so many people that our whole group got seperated anyway. Once you go through security it's every man for themselves and basically you have to go find an empty seat yourself. I never saw the rest of our group nor our tour guide after that point. I feel like these tickets were way too expensive just for a bus ride to Vatican City.

Loved this tour. Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and we got to skip the line which was great because the regular line to get in was crazy long! Thank God we walked straight in! It was a fun tour!

Best of Rome Walking Tour: Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was sooo much fun there were only 7 of us plus our tour guide spoke perfect English, which was awesome. He was soo passionate about Rome the way he talked about it and kept us interested the whole tour. He even kept our tour going on longer than usual about 1 hour longer but of course none of us cared as we had one of the best tour guides in the city !

Rome Hop-on Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
I liked that we did the double decker bus on our first day in Rome. We had just arrived in the morning and it was a relaxing way to view and get to know the city, except for the part where it started raining but it didn't last that long.
