HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TOUR:
Spending some days in Florence provides us with the opportunity to feel as though we are living in the Renaissance city lovingly referred as: "Il Magnifico". It is the home of the works by Michelangelo. Visit the Uffizi Gallery, the Vasari Corridor (built over the Ponte Vecchio), and see "The David". Florence is a true "embarrassment of riches" and you will see these monuments and museums without waiting in 3-hour lines. Shopping is fabulous in Florence ... Roberta and Henry will take you to some of their favorite shops for leather goods.
The pearl of Tuscany and the "City of Beautiful Towers" is one of the best-preserved Medieval towns of Tuscany. Its stunning skyline bristles with tall towers dating from the 13th century. You can be sure that Roberta and Henry know all of the shops, galleries and jewelers that line the two main streets of this town. Taste Ver naccia wine in San Gimignano.
The center of Pienza was completely redesigned in Renaissance times by Pope Pius II. Born here in 1405, when it was called Corsignano, Pope Enea Silvio de’ Piccolomini became known as a leading humanist, scholar and philosopher. Away from the grandeur of the main piazza, Pienza is a quiet agricultural town with shops selling local produce like pecorino, cheese made from sheep's milk.
Montalcino's foremost activity is wine producing, evident from the great number of enoteca (wine bar) shops where you can both sample and purchase the excellent and renowned Brunello wines. The town, situated on the top of a hill, is of timeless character and the streets are narrow and winding. The highest point is the 14th century Fortress and its impressive ramparts, there is wine tasting at the Fortress.
