What You Can Expect
Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your local guide. Stroll through the city’s center, rich with architectural masterpieces.
Head past the iconic Ponte Vecchio bridge, filled with art galleries and jewelry shops, and look up to see the Vasari Corridor running inside of it. Considered one of Florence's greatest secrets, the corridor was constructed in the 16th century for the Medici family. Your guide will discuss how the Medicis used the walkways to travel stealthily across the city.
Continue to the bustling square of Piazza della Signoria, home to the Palazzo Vecchio. Then make your way to the most iconic structure in the city’s skyline, the Florence Duomo. Admire the stunning feat of Brunelleschi’s Dome, as well as the Baptistery and Giotto’s Bell Tower.
Afterward, bypass the crowds in front of the Accademic Galley, skipping the line with your direct access ticket. Your guide will focus the commentary on Michelangelo’s works, including his unfinished sculptures, San Matteo and Prigioni. Then pay homage to the museum's centerpiece, the lifelike image of David.
Enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to continuing exploring the Accademia independently or to purchase lunch nearby.
Chianti Wine-Tasting Tour from Florence (4 hours):
Reunite with your guide and journey to the city’s outskirts, stopping at Piazzale Michelangelo for unbeatable views of Florence. Continue by minibus to the Chianti wine region, as you watch the scenery turn from city streets to vineyards and rolling green hills.
Visit a well-known winery in San Donato in Poggio first. Follow your guide through the wine cellars and learn about the fermentation and maturation process. Sip and swirl a world-class selection of the estate’s red Chianti wine.
After your tour and tasting, travel to the charming town of Greve in Chianti, home to the region’s annual Chianti Classico wine festival. Wander the 14th-century square and its small shops selling Italian produce and souvenirs.
Conclude your Tuscan adventure with a stop at the fortified village of Montefioralle to take in the views and enjoy some free time. Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Florence.
What a wonderful experience! The whole day went according to plan. Antonella was a wonderful guide on our walking tour of Florence, so knowledgeable and passionate about the city! In the afternoon, our tour guide Claudio took us on a wonderful journey through the Tuscan vineyards, and took us to some small villages where we visited some wonderful shops. He was very accommodating and patient as we took many photos. He really set the Tuscan mood when he played Andrea Bocelli music as we were driving through the beautiful countryside! Thank you for such a beautiful day!
Great tour, great guide. Very knowledgeable. In addidion to knowing her tour she enjoyed sharing it.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and obviously loves Florence. She introduced us to beautiful artwork inside and outside. We fell in love with Florence! Thankfully we were able to visit the Academenia in a timely manner. This is a wonderful walking tour.
Tour guide was great! Very informative. Loved Chianti and our tour guide Claudia. Very flexible with what we wanted to do. We spent more time at the first winery and didn't make it to the rest, but we had been going from one activity to the next, so it was nice to sit and relax!
Excellent tour guide. Took us the the most important things we wanted to see great winery tour in beautiful Tuscany great time. Thank you to all who were a part of our trip
Our guide was very knowledgable and you could really see how much she loves this town and the art that is here. It was touching. The stories she told about the history really brought it to life for me. I would definitely recommend a tour so you learn the history behind what you are seeing.
OUTSTANDING!! Especially the hidden treasures of Florence.
Our enthusiastic guide was MORE THAN outstanding in every way!
Forgive me, I forget her name, but I know she has been doing the job for many years! A beautiful mature woman, perfect English and twinkling eyes. A number of great actors would have to be employed by you to replace her knowledge, enthusiasm, skill, and sheer happy loveliness. THANKYOU!!
WE WILL RECOMMEND YOU/HER TO ALL OUR FRIENDS. It was absolutely the highpoint of our trip to Florence. Even better being with her than with Michaelangelo's David! (who for the first time in our guide's, I think, 18 years of guiding, could be photographed by visitors!) THANK YOU!!!
This was a good overview of the renaissance area. Do this on the first day in Florence. We did it on the day after we had walked all over the city so some was redundant. We got a lot of good info though. The chianti tour was great! We did not have a car so this was a great way to get out of the city and into Chianti. It was beautiful! The wine was too!
