Florence and Surroundings Tour
Here is the Le Ceregne Florence Tour with our local tour operators.
Visiting this jewel of the Italian Renaissance is like taking a leap into a past rich with history and tradition. Florence has a fabulous legacy of artistic and architectural treasures and it was the birthplace of illustrious figures like Dante, Giotto, and Cimabue (to name only a few).
We can book entrance tickets to the Museums and offer you a Tour Guide service for a guided walking visit of the town; or if you’d prefer, we can make suggestions of the nicest itineraries to explore the beauty of the town. We can also point out characteristic spots to enjoy exquisite dishes of traditional Tuscan cuisine.
The perfect ending of the day is the most scenic view over the town: we take you to Piazzale Michelangelo for the best photos and take some time to enjoy a glass of good wine.
