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.
