Base in our guest house in Florence and unveil the secret beauty of the Renaissance’s Capital, visiting also its surroundings, enjoying the art and culture highlights, but also discovering several charming villages, opportunities for walks, delicious snacks and shopping.
The first stop just outside the city is Piazzale Michelangelo, the place from which you can experience the most exciting panoramic view of the historic center of Florence. With a very short walk you can reach the Roses’ Garden, adorned by the sculptures of Jean Michel Folon, embracing the Brunelleschi’s dome.
The Chianti area is really close, a few kilometers by car (or train) and you will be immersed in a regular countryside, where olive groves and vineyards treated as gardens are interrupted only by some villas, monasteries and hilltop towns. Head to the breathtaking small cities and castles we recommend: Montefioralle, Greve, Panzano, Volpaia and get a table in one of the traditional taverns and trattorias to taste the “Florentine steak”, the “pappa al pomodoro” , the “peposo” or other local dishes.
Just thirty minutes drive from our accommodation you can explore the charming Lucca and Pistoia, mysterious in its Romanesque architecture and Prato, perhaps the only Tuscan capital hiding in its heart an ancient medieval castle. Each one of these cities host a special museums, revealing the history of the territory, which is worth knowing. What about a group guided tour?
