Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Like everything else we booked through Viator, this tour was very well organized, informative and thoroughly enjoyable. Irina was delightful and very knowledgeable, offering us the chance to book a lovely (and cool) lunch at a local restaurant in Siena which was delicious and a much needed break from the heat. Our local guide in Siena was very droll, but he gave us a lot of information about Siena's history, particularly the cathedral and the horse races, about which we knew nothing. To imagine the thriving city being decimated by the Black Death was really something. And San Gimignano was also incredible, and there is no train to get there, so a tour is a must.

Skip the Line: Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was one of the high points of our trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and we learned a ton about the progress of art from the middle ages through the Renaissance and beyond. It was very hot in the museum, and very crowded: she encouraged us all to return in November for a more peaceful visit. But when the guards unlocked a side door for us, admitting just our group to the Vasari Corridor, it was really special. The portraits and the history of the place was just incredible. Learning that Hitler and Mussolini had walked that very corridor was unbelievable. We came home and found a newsreel of it on the internet. You also get a surprise view into another spectacular church from the corridor. Truly worth your while!

This was so much fun! Alessandro and the staff were warm, entertaining, and very good teachers! We learned a lot, and it was delicious. (The quality of the ingredients was superb, and the wine was very nice too!) We plan to hold the same class for our friends at home!

We enjoyed this tour enormously. Our guide, Calypso, was excellent, and we enjoyed the time to explore the villages on our own. They were all beautiful, and so worth seeing!
