There are some very spiritual places both in and outside of Florence. Some highlights will be the arcane mysteries of San Miniato al Monte, the curative waters of Fontelucente, an overnight stay at St. Francis’s monastery, La Verna, high in the Casentino mountains.
“Thank-you, Marsha, for all of the careful thought and meticulous arrangement that made everything seamless and easy for us. The sharing of your enthusiasm, knowledge and friends, and the door opening use of your proficiency in the language made this an enjoyable visit. In addition, the fact that some of our money will be sending the women you know in Zambia to nursing school is very satisfying. I enjoyed your explanation of the project, which gave me a bit more insight into your endeavors.”

Delight all of your senses experiencing my favorite places in Florence, Fiesole and Settignano, including the perfection of the gardens at Gamberaia, wonderful local restaurants tucked away in corners of Florence unfrequented by tourists and the pleasure of seeing masterpieces of renaissance art in the churches and public spaces they were commissioned for 400 years ago. See this beautiful city through the eyes of my friends who live, breathe and love its history and legacy. This is a personal tour that opens up a side of Tuscany you would never see otherwise.

We will visit villas and gardens in the Tuscan countryside and stroll through the Etruscan/Roman ruins in the lovely hillside village of Fiesole.
“If you’d like to find yourself surrounded by extraordinary art, mesmerized by historical sites (some dating back to Roman and Etruscan times), and all the while enjoying delicious Italian food and wines, join Marsha on her tour of Florence. Each day brought a new delight. The trip exceeded our dreams.”
