THE BEST PLACES IN TUSCANY
My mother and I did 'the best places in Tuscany' tour. I would highly recommend this to anyone of all ages, families and couples. The tour was very enjoyable and if you want to see another part of Italy, it's fantastic. Our tour guide Chiara was very informative with the history on each place we visited. We also had time to visit the places and walk at our own pace and see the famous cities and small villages. The only bit of feedback I would suggest is longer time at Pisa, so you can go inside the Cathedral and Leaning tower if you wish. Lunch in the wine bar with wine tasting was a lot of fun and you had a chance to interact with the other members on the tour. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the day and we meet some lovely travellers.

Un'esperienza unica. Immersi nelle bellezze del chianti, tra vitigni e fortezze medievali abbiamo trascorso una giornata indimenticabile. L'accompagnatore e la guida hanno contribuito con la loro cortesia a rendere ancora più piacevole l'esperienza. Non vedo l'ora di poter ritornare e provare altri tour.
