Days 2 - 5 - Discover Florence
Spend the next three days discovering Florence accompanied by your personal guide. You’ll be given a museum pass which grants you access to over 70 of the city’s museums.  Visit famous sights like the Uffizi Gallery, with its renowned collection of Renaissance paintings and sculptures including work by Giotto, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

You can also visit the Cathedral with Brunelleschi’s famous duomo, the Gates of Paradise on Florence's Baptistery, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and the Ponte Vecchio.
Don’t miss out on the lesser-known parts of the city such as the Oltrarno district with its antique shops and cafés and discover the newly renovated San Lorenzo market with fresh daily produce and wine tastings.

Day 5 - Charms of Chianti
Discover the charming Chianti countryside in your private vehicle complete with your personal driver-guide. You’ll visit the pretty hilltop towns of Greve and Castellina and take part in a wine tasting at a local vineyard.
In the afternoon visit the famous Fonterutoli hamlet which has been in the Mazzei family since 1435. Having been in the family for over 600 years, it retains its original character of a tranquil country village. Once the tour is complete relax with more wine tasting from the Fonterutoli production.

Day 6 – San Gimignano and Siena Tour
Enjoy a full-day tour of Siena and San Gimignano with your private vehicle and driver-guide. Your first stop will be the scenic Tuscan town of Siena for a three hour walking tour. Visit the Piazza del Campo, one of the finest main squares in Italy before seeing the Palazzo Pubblico which has served as Siena's Town Hall since the 1300s. You’ll also visit Siena's Duomo which is considered to be one of the finest Gothic cathedrals in Italy.

Later continue your drive to the medieval town of San Gimignano where you can explore on your own. We recommend you visit the Collegiata which contains 15th century frescoes, the municipal museum, and the beautiful Church of Sant’Agostino.  

Day 7 – Pisa and Lucca
Start the day with a walking tour of Pisa, whose leaning tower is one of Italy’s most famous landmarks. You’ll also see the Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto and pass the many churches and palazzi dotted around the town.  Continue on to Lucca, a quaint and evocative town that retains the spirit of ancient Italy. Having miraculously escaped the devastation of war, today it’s an extraordinary example of Tuscan art heritage.

Later meet your guide in Lucca for a half day walking tour. Explore the first example of Pisan-Romanesque architecture at the Cathedral of Saint Martin with its huge Byzantine-style mosaic which dates back to the 13th century.

Day 8 – Departure
A member of the A&K team will pick you up from your apartment and take you to Florence airport for your onward flight.
