Tour 7: A special day in Tuscany
Our day will begin to the first light in the morning with the visit of one of the Italian symbols, Pisa . Here we have free time to admire the wonderful Cathedral, the Baptistery, the monumental Cemetery and to take scenic pictures of the famous Leaning Tower. We’ll continue our tour in a famous wine estate at the foot of San Gimignano, where the lunch based on typical Florentine products “crostini, salumi, formaggi, lasagne…”, will come complete with a wine tasting. It won’t be a simple wine tasting, but a real “wine tasting class”, in which, the secrets of wine tasting will be revealed. The tasting is based on eight different wines and on vin santo accompanied with cantuccini (typical Tuscan buiscuits) and grappa. After lunch we’ll go to the most wonderful Medieval hilltop village in Italy, San Gimignano, where we can enjoy our free time to explore the maze of its cobbled streets, the small squares and many shops of local artisans and farm products.Our exciting day continues with a view of the true Chianti countryside and one of the most enchanting lands in the world with a patchwork of different panoramas scattered with hilltop hamlets, little churches and castles before arriving to Siena. In Siena we’ll meet our guide and we’ll start our promenade around the most important squares to the Cathedral, where we will visit its interior. At the end of the visit we’ll have time to enjoy a coffee and do some shopping in typical local shops. When the sun sets it’s time to go back to Florence
Tour 6: Cinque Terre
Our trip to 5 Terre? A whole, intense and unforgettable day dedicated to the discovery of one of the most amazing and enchanting landscapes in the World. Five villages, suspended between sea and land, hanging from sheer cliffs surrounded by hills and vineyards, which will allow us to immerse into a little piece of Heaven. Our visit will start at daybreak, with the arrival to La Spezia, where we will find a motor vessel waiting for us: we will have the possibility to admire this amazing landscape from the outside, like in a postcard. Our first stop will be Portovenere, an old town at the end of the promontory where the built-up area still has the typical appearance of a Ligurian Village. Here we will have some free time to take a stroll among the narrow houses and the small alleys before leaving again to Monterosso. As soon as we land at Monterosso we will be overcome by its enchanting beaches and luxuriant vegetation that surrounds the little village. After a short informative walk, we will have some free time to enjoy a tasty lunch based on seafood in a typical local restaurant and to dive into irresistible crystal-clear waters. Our journey will resume towards the last stop, Vernazza, a seaside town surrounding a little natural port, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here we will have free time to relax, enjoying a delicious coffee or ice-cream in the main square, while observing activities of fishermen and locals. We will leave this little piece of heaven on the boat that will accompany us first to Portovenere and then to La Spezia where, back to reality, we will catch the bus to go back to Florence. In addition to comfortable clothes, we recommend to bring with you swimwear and a hat to protect against the sun!
