DAY TRIP FROM ROME TO SIENNA AND FLORENCE
Medieval and renaissance, what else to ask?
At a short distance from Rome you have the opportunity to visit the long time swore enemies Sienna and Florence.
Sienna and Florence have been fierce rivals since the Middle Ages, still today, the Sienese are fiercely proud of their past. Just take the Palio, a bareback horse race that enflames the city into chaos twice yearly: Siena’s 17contrade, or quarters, compete with one another for the trophy. From the medieval banners that deck out the city during the races to the festive parades, the Palio feels like something straight out of the Middle Ages.
In the afternoon the driver will bring you to Florence, there you will meet your tour guide who will walk you to discover all the major attraction in the town centre. The Sightseeing tour of Florence is a 3 hours private walking tour it includes: Santa Croce, piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, Duomo (inside), Battistero and much much more.
 
 
 
HALF DAY OR FULL DAY WALKING TOUR OF FLORENCE
Our highly competent and professional tour guides will allow you to discover Florence’s best known treasures such as the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the squares, the monuments, the Old Bridge. Explore the town centre from an extraordinary perspective. An excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who want to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history.

The tour can be expanded including the Uffizi or the Accademia.
The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important art collections in the world. Discover how the art of painting developed over the centuries. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: Giotto, Botticelli with his famous Venus, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and many more.
The Accademia hosts the magnificent giant marble sculptures created by Michelangelo, and above all, the glorious David.

3 HOURS PRIVATE WALKING TOUR OF SIENNA
If you are fascinate with the Medieval, Sienna is the place to go!

While walking try to listen carefully by chance you may listen to the sound of beautiful music coming from within the walls of the palace Chigi-Seracini, an international eminent music and musicology center. It was here that Antonio Vivaldi (1675-1741) was rediscovered in the 1930s, and his works were performed publicly for the first time since his death.
