If you'd love to see these cities in Tuscany but you don't know how to reach them, you can cross them off your bucket list! One of our professional tour drivers will welcome you in any requested locations of yours, in Rome. You will then head to the country, on one of our luxury vehicles, a spacious Mercedes V Class Limovan or a Sedan, for a more intimate experience. Driving on the Highway of the Sun, l'Autostrada del Sole, as it's called here in Italy (a highway that travels across Italy from North to South) you will get to learn more about the locations you'll visit, thanks to the knowledge and funny anecdotes of your personal tour driver. Drive along different sceneries, cypress hills, sunflower fields, vineyards, olive tree groves, quarries and windmills. Pisa, one of the 4 Italian Maritime Republics Being it nestled on the coasts of the Tyrrenian seas, it was once a prominent Maritime Republic, along side Amalfi, Genova, and Venice. Now it is a quaint little city really, easy going living is a priority here. It hosts one of the most important universities in Italy, one of which was founded by Napoleon in the 1800s, La Normale di Pisa. This city is marvelous. An emblem of Italian art and literature all over the world. And architecture obviously. The high points of Pisa in fact, are not only the artistic and literary aspects. But its buildings too. Everything from Middle Ages, Renaissance with a hint of Gothic, Pisa boasts with beautiful architectures. Take the Leaning Tower, for example. A bell tower that is an architectural digest finished in 1372. Which is part of a 3 building complex dislocated and overlooking Piazza dei Miracoli, adorned with immaculate green fields, along side the Cathedral of Pisa and the Baptistry. Florence, the Noble Town (Città Nobile as Dante depicted it) Once in Florence your tour driver will make all the suggestions on what to do first, what to see, where to go. You will reach Porta Romana, a street where your tour driver will stay while you enjoy touring the city. Then off for a great time in Firenze! You can visit the famous Saint Mark's Square, where the Academy of the Fine arts are located. Galleria dell'Accademia, or Accademia Gallery is definitely a MUST SEE. It hosts several paintings, sculptures and artworks from so many artists in Renaissance times, like Allori, Pontormo and Michelangelo. Speaking of which, among other impressive masterpieces, make sure to see the David, one of Michelangelo's finest works. Walking through Via Ricasoli you can "stumble upon" Saint Mary of the Flower, the Florentine Cathedral. You can't really miss it. Literally! This church is Europe's third Largest Cathedral. With a dome created by Brunelleschi in the 15th Century and the naves on the inside beautifully decorated with Giorgio Vasari's paintings of the last judgement scene of Heaven and Hell. Another Mandatory stop is Piazza della Signoria Beautifully decorated with magnificent statues from Giambologna, Benevenuto Cellini, Bartolomeo Ammanti and Pio Fede. While you are here in the square, make sure to admire the Loggia dei Lanci, another selection by a multitude of artists are hosted here, from Statues to artwork. But you can't visit Florence without a stop to view the Old Bridge, il Ponte Vecchio. A promenade, really, that crosses the Arno river. A bridge that seems so fragile and precarious, with buildings swinging on top of it, it seems. But this bridge is stronger than it looks! It was built in a different time, the 14th century, it is incredibly sturdy. Even if not enough to house families and homes. That's why the buildings on Ponte Vecchio host workshops and boutiques today, some of which owned by Florence' most important jewelers. When in Florence you can also see the Giotto bell tower, the Baptistery, Palazzo Vecchio and S. Lorenzo district, famous for its leather market. At lunch we highly recommend a meal in one of the Taverns in the city, where locals usually go. Because, let's face it: who, better than the locals, know where the best spots are to eat a good meal? You can sample some local delicacies, that are not so delicate but oh so tasty and delightful. Pici all'Aglione are strongly recommended, a pasta dish with a tomato sauce spiced with a particular variety of garlic that doesn't grow anywhere else in the world. Or The Fiorentina, the famous steak. A ton of meat for just one person, so come with an appetite or you'll end up splitting your steak with three other people (just joking, of course. But it is big) After Florence, you'll enjoy a nice gentle ride in the countryside, all the way back to your location in Rome.
