Tuscan countryside and Piazzale Michelangelo

Enjoy your ride through Tuscany with postcard views over olive groves and vineyards.

Driving up the beautiful Viale dei Colli in Florence, reach the magnificent Piazzale Michelangelo, a hilltop panoramic terrace named after the artist who sculpted the original David statue, the symbol of Florence. Prepare yourself to get the most impressive views of the city!

Immerge in the beauties of Florence

Nearby, see the white and green marble façade of S. Miniato al Monte church – one of the purest examples of the Florentine Romanesque style. Leaving the church, follow an uphill road bordered by the ancient city walls. Reach Forte Belvedere, an imposing fortress built around 1590 by the Grand-duke Ferdinand to protect the Medici family villas.

Enter the city through an ancient gate

Driving down from the Fort, pass the old gate named Porta Romana to enter the city center, and get to Santa Croce Square.

Here is located the imposing Basilica, burial place of many Italian illustrious like Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Galileo, etc. The around the square area and nearby streets are also considered the most important leather district in Florence and thus, full of famous leather shops.

A walk among history and art

Next, head for the very heart of Florence: Piazza della Repubblica surrounded by historical literary cafes where artists and intellectuals used to gather.

From this central hub Piazza della Repubblica, reach by walk all the other attractions: Piazza del Duomo (S. Maria del Fiore Cathedral, Baptistery, Giotto’s Bell Tower), Piazza Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio-Town Hall, Uffizi Gallery, etc.), the elegant Ponte Vecchio meaning ‘old bridge‘ home to famous gold and jewelry vendors.

 

Get the chance to admire the best masterpieces of Renaissance art breathing the magical atmosphere only Florence can offer. Obviously, your driver remains at your complete disposal to reach any place of your interest.

Cross the Old Bridge

On the other side of the Arno river, admire Pitti Palace the private Villa of the Medici family which hosts many galleries and museums (Gallery of Modern Art, Costume Gallery, Palatine Gallery, Royal Apartments, Coach Museum, Silver and Porcelain museums, etc.) and the magnificent Boboli Gardens.

Shopping lovers or hungry souls

There are so many shops and trattorias to dive into, so everyone in your group can satisfy their desires whether it be a smart leather jacket, or a scrumptious plate of pasta! Few cities of comparable size can boast such a profusion and variety of high-quality goods with Italian design.

Luxury shopping and artisan shops

The most important street for shopping is Via De’ Tornabuoni with designer boutiques like Prada, Gucci, Armani, Ferragamo, Valentino, Vuitton, Damiani, Cartier, Trussardi, Versace, Tiffany, YSL, Zegna, Tod’s, etc. See what the local craftsmen have to offer or practice your bargaining skills at the San Lorenzo outdoor market.

Admire the Leaning Tower in Pisa

After your voyage into majestic art and ancient history in Florence, relax and enjoy your drive to Pisa. Admire the Miracle Square with its magnificent Cathedral, Baptistery and the world-famous Leaning Tower.

Climb Pisa tower

The beautiful tower does lean and is worth the climb: nearly 300 stairs made of marble! Closed for many years, has finally reopened to visitors after intense restoration.

Enjoy the panorama over mountains, Arno river and during sunny days even on the sea. Then look down and admire the impressive views over the Duomo and Baptistery from the top.

Miracle Square

The Leaning Tower is located in the majestic Piazza dei Miracoli, which makes a perfect showplace for these exquisite examples of Romanesque architecture. The works for building Pisa Cathedral began in 1062. The Cathedral and Baptistery, the Tower of Pisa and the Campo Santo form together one of the most beautiful and famous building groups in the world.
