Tuscany in Tour: private and exclusive tours or transfers in Tuscany

What client say.

“Outstanding!”

My husband and I were overwhelmed with the level of service provided by Tuscany in Tour. We booked three full day tours with this company and each and every tour they went above and beyond what we had expected to make our tours fabulous..

“Amazing Company to Work With”

We were two couples who wanted to visit as much of Italy as we could in 2 weeks, with no idea how to handle all of our booking of tours, hotels, travel but we knew the places we wanted to visit. Lost & Found Viaggi was the greatest find..

“Brilliant Service! Highly recommended.”

A big thank you to the excellent service of Tuscany in Tour. I emailed the Staff to arrange transportation for us as a family of 5 from Pisa Airport to our hotel in Florence..

“Excellent!!!!”

This was one of the best holidays we have had. Max was wonderful in working with us on scheduling, selection and overall questions…

We will take care of you!

Hi, I was born in Firenze and I lived my childhood in a medieval village called Castelfranco di Sopra. I have lived in Tuscany all my life, and it has become part of my soul. It’s a place I love and respect, and it never ceases to take my breath away. Although I attended art school in Florence, since my early 20s I have worked for a number of well-known travel agencies and tour operators. While working there, I had the opportunity to plan and lead many tours for English, American and Australian visitors. I love leading tour groups and find great pleasure in introducing visitors to the hidden gems of a land that is so rich in history, culture, traditions, food, wine and the warm hospitality of the authentic Tuscan people - learn more about us.

Our Brilliant 5-Stars Reviews on TripAdvisor

tour guide agency tuscany

I did this tour today with 2 of my family members. It was only us 3 which was pretty good. We went to some pretty amazing places and Andrea, the tour guide was frat and knew a lot of stuff. He also spoke great English as well as my brother and I can’t speak Italian.

We left Florence early in the morning to go to San Gimignano and other places in Chianti. There were some wonderful opportunities to take photos when we went to the vineyards in the Tuscan hills, obviously the wine tasting itself was very pleasant as well. Ciao Max and thanks 4 the wonderful day!

You will never find a better driver than Andrew! Professional in every way--black suit, white shirt, very comfortable vehicle, not a scary driver like some! Picked us up promptly at our hotel. He took us to American War Memorial, then San Gimignano, a fantastic winery, and Pisa.

Andrea was amazing! Funny, sweet and a great driver. we decided on the way to Siena we wanted to stop at the luxury brand outlets and that was no problem. She waited for us for an hour or so and took us straight away to our destination w/fun stories.

Florence is the pinnacle of Italian culture; an open air museum full of exquisite architecture, ornate churches and spectacular palazzos. It is known as the cradle of the Renaissance, was the birthplace of great artists and poets like Donatello and Dante, and is often described as the most beautiful city in the world. If those accolades were not enough, Florence also happens to be the best place to get a taste of the rich gastronomy and wines of Tuscany.

Dive into an unexpected corner of Tuscany.

tour guide agency tuscany

As you walk or cycle the peaceful, cobbled streets of Lucca, you will experience that rare phenomenon all travellers secretly desire; the feeling that you’ve discovered a hidden gem that no one else knows about.

The historic core is set inside a ring of Rennaissance walls and enveloped by serene gardens. The city is known for its old churches, pretty green spaces and for its most famous son, opera supremo Giacomo Puccini, author of La Boheme and Madama Butterfly. The town centre is compact and mostly traffic free, making it an easy city to get around, while the Lucchese countryside offers up a bounty of delicious produce for the city’s chefs to play with, making Lucca a magnet for foodies.

Explore the charming city behind the leaning tower.

tour guide agency tuscany

The Leaning Tower and the Duomo, located in Miracle Square, may be the most exquisite examples of Italian Medieval architecture anywhere in the country, but there is so much more to Pisa than the ‘Leaning Tower.’ This charming old university city, once home to astronomer Galileo, is just over one hour from Florence and offers travellers colourful palaces, vibrant piazzas and romanesque artworks to explore, minus the crowds. A vibrant events calendar and a buzzing dining scene (Pisa’s proximity to the coast means seafood is the hero of many local dishes) round off an impressive menu of things to see and do.

Discover Tuscany’s most Medieval town.

tour guide agency tuscany

Siena is an exquisite Medieval masterpiece, a heady mix of the sacred and the profane. The city’s colourful history, architecture and artworks reflect that it was once one of the powerhouse cities of Europe. Highlights include the vast scallop shaped piazza, known as The Campo, one of the most beautiful squares in the world, and the dazzling Duomo featuring sculptures by Michelangelo. It’s well known as a laid-back alternative to Florence without the crowds, except when the famous Palio is in town.

Rich heritage and a richer soul

Few scenes are more evocative of  Italy  than that of rural Tuscany, undulating hills, dotted with stoic stone farm houses, dark green cypress trees and ranked vines, all under a shawl of a dawn’s mist.

Recognisable over shoulder of countless Renaissance Madonnas, Tuscany has long drawn enamoured visitors, each after culture, wine, fine food and tangible history. All are elements that abound across Italy, but here are uniquely distilled between the Apennine Mountains and the sea.

The whole region was built on Etruscan and Roman roots, and whilst in  Florence  the Renaissance reigns, out in the countryside the old towns perched on hill tops retain the honest rustico charm of the Medieval. Masterpieces from both ages can be found in unmatched concentrations in Tuscany, tucked away in churches, museums and galleries all over the region.

Pisa has more to offer than its skewed tower; the Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto complete a stunning quartet of medieval triumphs. Siena’s scallop-shaped piazza, flanked by soft orange townhouses and Torre del Mangia, is one of the most idyllic public spaces (except perhaps during the infamous biannual Palio di Siena horse race). Towns seeming untouched by time, such as Montalcino, Pienza and San Gimignano, sit scattered across the region amidst golden wheat fields, silver olive groves and ancient vineyards, each with their own charms.

The food and wine here enjoys a similarly unpretentious integrity. Tuscans are enormously proud of their culinary traditions and their locally sourced, seasonal produce. Encompassing the Chianti region, Tuscany can also claim to produce some of the finest wines in Italy.

When to visit

Italy is a year-round destination. Summers can get very hot and crowds do swell, so spring and early autumn are great times to visit. The sun is still shining and it’s much more pleasant to explore the cities once the intense summer heat has subsided.

Me and my Favorite Painting Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

A unique idea conceived by Florentine Tourism Expert: Akseniya Alexandrova.

A vision born of my energy, which opens a huge opportunity for those who believe that tourism is the door to discover beauty and wonders in distant places. I use local knowledge, connections and know-how to help others enjoy the uniqueness of Florence, Tuscany, Chianti and beyond.

This is the best way to create an unforgettable experience of famous monuments, churches and museums, as well as special places from all over Tuscany. Everything is even more special, as the Tuscany region is a unique place and Florence is unique in itself with its history and charm that this city brings.

I am an independent licensed guide from 2015 and a member of AGT, a nationally qualified association of licensed guides. I speak four languages freely: Italian, English, Bulgarian and Russian.

Our trip included Paris and Provence. We loved our time in Paris, sightseeing, museums, history and shopping or just sitting in a cafe people watching. We also enjoyed the slower pace of Provence, with the wonderful food, meeting locals, the history and of course, the wine! Everything was perfect! Anna created a wonderful trip for our small group.

Guide to Tuscany

The rolling hills of Tuscany are Giada’s favorite place to recharge, and the landscape might be Italy’s most idyllic backdrop for a countryside escape. At the heart of the region is its capital, Florence, considered the cradle of the Renaissance thanks to its rich history as a center of art and architecture. Its rugged countryside is equally breathtaking, with scenic valleys dotted with rustic villas, medieval fortress towns, and sun-drenched vineyards and olive groves that we can thank for some of the best Italian wines and olive oils. In addition to Chianti wine, full-bodied reds such as Montalcino and Montepulciano are produced here, along with rich olive oils known for their gentle bitterness and herbal flavors.

One of Giada’s favorite Tuscan towns, Montalcino, is known for its brunello wine, so drink up! It’s also home to great restaurants and shopping. Southwest of Florence, picturesque San Gimignano is a small, walled medieval town in the midst of the rolling hills of Tuscany. Another medieval city, Siena is one of the region’s more crowded destinations but still retains lots of charm (and if you’re searching for somewhere with a bit of nightlife, this is it). Meanwhile, quaint Pienza, with its urban garden-lined alleys of brick and cobblestone, can be combined as a day trip with Montepulciano, a city on a hill that you can only hike up to or reach by bus (cars need to be parked outside of the city’s walls).

Here is our guide to exploring Tuscany, from the art and culture of Florence to the rugged countryside of our favorite small towns.

Getting Around

In the northern part of the region, Florence and Pisa have the largest international airports serving Tuscany (Amerigo Vespucci Airport in Florence and Galileo Galilei Airport in Pisa). Direct flights to Florence are available from the U.S., and most major carriers fly into Pisa through Europe or the U.K. 

Tuscany is a sprawling region with small towns scattered throughout the countryside some are worth exploring for a few days, and others make for a quick day trip. Because it’s such a large area, the best way to get around Tuscany is by car. Rent a car from the airport or train station when you arrive to make your way across the region, or book a private driver to take you from place to place (we like mydaytrip.com for easy door-to-door service). Or if you prefer, you can choose a city like Florence to make your home base and design your itinerary around day trips. If you’re feeling adventurous, zip around the countryside in an Ape (these small three wheeled vehicles are iconic in Italy!).

Florence: Eat

   all’antico vinaio.

all’Antico Vinaio

Back in the day, Florence was a workers’ town, where cheap, filling food like sandwiches was in high demand. The panini here are still the best in Italy, both for their variety and the speed with which they’re constructed. Get the la Favolosa here, piled with salami and a pecorino cheese spread on freshly baked schiacciata bread (like focaccia, but risen longer for more flavor).

   Il Latini

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Il Latini

Dinner at Il Latini is always a party - tables are long, banquet style arrangements, so you'll almost definitely be seated with strangers who'll quickly become friends. And while you can order a la carte, it's best to put yourself in the kitchen's hands and go with the set menu. You'll end up with 5-course meal served family style that is crowned by a glorious bistecca Fiorentina that's bigger than the plate it's served on.

Madova Leather Goods in Tuscany, Florence

Leather goods are a Florentine tradition—fitting for a city that specializes in beef! There are many quality glove makers in town, but this 100-year-old institution at the base of the Ponte Vecchio is the best of the best. Let the experts measure your hands to find the perfect fit, and on't leave without trying a pair made from cinghale, wild boar leather, which feels like unbelievably soft suede.

One of two sister properties that flank the Arno river owned by the Ferragamo family, this hotel is just as stylish as you would expect. Rooms are sleek and minimal, filled with luxurious touches like cashmere blankets and a high quality hair dryer and straightener in the bathroom.

   Helvetia & Bristol

   La Taverna di San Giuseppe

La Taverna di San Giuseppe

In a rustic, 12th-century building, this beloved taverna serves traditional Tuscan dishes like ribollita, pappa al pomodoro, handmade pici, and cinghiale (wild boar) when it’s available. Be sure to book in advance, as it’s ever-popular with locals and travelers alike.

   Osteria Le Logge

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Osteria Le Logge

For more than 45 years, this osteria just steps from the Piazza del Campo has been serving refined Tuscan fare in a warm, casual room that was once a grocer’s shop. The owners run a winery in Montalcino, so be sure to sample some of their brunello alongside the other lovely Tuscan wines in their cellar—in this case, an ancient Etruscan cavern.

   Pizzeria Poppi

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Pizzeria Poppi

This small counter-only pizzeria is famous for ciaccino, a local focaccia that’s baked thin in large rectangular trays and stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto cotto. Though it looks unassuming from the outside, one bite will have you in gooey, cheesy bliss.

   Ristorante Gallo Nero

Giada De Laurentiis at Ristorante Gallo Nero

This warm, romantic restaurant is tucked away on the ground floor of what used to be a 13th century palace and feels like you're eating in a medieval wine cellar. The artfully presented dishes are definitely a step up from traditional Italian spots, and the pastas are wonderful. It can also be a really nice reprieve from the crowds!

   Aloe&Wolf

Aloe & Wolf vintage store

Fashion lovers come to this boutique for a treasure trove of vintage designer clothing and accessories. This isn’t any ordinary thrift shop! You’ll love the unique, high-fashion finds you’ll end up taking home with you.

   Duomo di Siena

tour guide agency tuscany

Locals know that this cathedral is the grandest in all of Tuscany (yes, even more impressive than Florence!). One look at its dramatic black-and-white striped marble interior modeled on the city’s crest and you’ll agree; it’s a marvel of medieval artistry from floor to ceiling. Be sure to set aside plenty of time to explore every corner of this cathedral complex, or you’ll miss precious details like the altar sculptures by Michelangelo. If heights don’t daunt you, take the guided “Gate of Heaven” tour, which gives a rare bird’s-eye view of the frescoes and stained glass from walkways that are tucked under the roof. 

   Piazza del Campo

Piazza del Campo in Siena

This grand, central public space outside the city government building is one of the most unique in Italy. Its odd shell-like shape paved in red bricks that are divided into pie slices is a symbolic reference to the Noveschi (the Nine), the group of powerful oligarchs who ruled Siena at the height of its influence. The palazzos that line the square were the homes of these important families; by careful agreement, no one building is any taller than the others, signifying that they held power equally.

   Via di Città

tour guide agency tuscany

The town of Siena was masterfully planned from start to finish as a grand display of power and precision. Walk along this main artery that symbolically connects religion and politics (it runs from the government seat in Piazza del Campo to the grand cathedral complex) to wonder at the vision of the medieval leaders who made it happen. In between lie the grand palazzos of many important families, the stone facades of which you can admire as you stroll and shop.

Siena: Stay

   grand hotel continental siena.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Grand Hotel Continental Siena

This opulent hotel in a 16th-century palazzo might just be the most luxurious place to make your home base in Tuscany. With four-poster beds and lush tapestry canopies in most rooms, you’ll feel like a member of the Italian nobility yourself, especially when you sample the daily wine tastings in the underground cellar.

Pienza: Eat

   fredo gelateria.

Fredo Gelateria

In the center of town, this shop makes the most delicious artisanal gelato from premium ingredients all sourced by hand from local farms and orchards. Any fruit flavor is not to be missed! Not in the mood for a frozen treat? They also make delicious traditional Tuscan pastries like pane dei santi, a rich bread enjoyed in the fall around All Saints’ Day.

   Piccolomini Cafe

Piccolomini Cafe

This charming cafe in a quaint plaza makes for a great lunch spot with lots of outside seating. The best time to come is for aperitivo hour when you can enjoy an Aperol spritz or negroni and snack on homemade focaccia and cheese. For a traditional meal, order the pici, a thick hand-rolled pasta from Siena that looks like oversized spaghetti.

   Podere il Casale

Podere il Casale

This organic cheese farm is home to an exceptional farm-to-table restaurant that uses fresh ingredients from their garden and the animals on the farm. Take in the stunning views of the Val d’Orcia—a valley with rolling hills that’s been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site—from the panoramic terrace. If you’d like to make a full day of it, Podere il Casale also offers cooking classes and activities like pizza and pasta making, bread baking, cheese making demos, and truffle hunting.

   Palazzo Piccolomini

Palazzo Piccolomini garden

This lavish palace was once the summer home of Pope Pius II. Today, it holds a ground-floor museum that shows how the 15th-century pontiff lived (spoiler alert: very well!), a small wine shop with a great selection of local wines, and a stunning rooftop garden that offers incredible views of the Orcia Valley below. 

   Officine 904

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Officine 904

Visit this family-run fashion shop for unique and trendy bags, purses, wallets, and more made from the high-quality soft leather for which Tuscany is known. Partners in life and business, Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello are the visionary artisans behind the studio and all their timeless design.

Pienza: Stay

Montepulciano: eat,    agriosteria tenuta astrone.

Agriosteria Tenuta Astrone

This cute farmhouse restaurant south of Montepulciano is known for its Tuscan burgers, which arrive deconstructed with the lettuce, cheese and bread on the side. They cook the meat in terracotta pots, which change color in response to the heat of the flame. It’s a visual way to tell how the meat inside is cooking, an ancient local method of cooking that’s fascinating to watch.

   Godimento Di Vino

Godimento Di Vino

The name of this restaurant means “Enjoyment of Wine,” and that’s certainly what you’ll do as you browse the extensive cave filled with local vintages. Located in a rustic stone building on a winding, quiet side street, this cozy spot serves classic Tuscan fare for which the knowledgeable staff is always ready to recommend the perfect pairing.

Montepulciano: Do

   avignonesi winery tour.

Avignonesi Winery

Vino nobile de Montepulciano is a sangiovese-based red blend that, along with its cousins chianti and brunello di Montalcino, helped make Tuscan wines the international powerhouse they are today. Though they are primarily made with the same grape, the unique conditions of each small town and the methods used by local winemakers can change the final product dramatically. Montepulciano’s version is medium-bodied but can age well for decades, striking a lovely middle ground for red wine fans. Taste it and other local wines (dessert wine lovers must try their vin santos!) at this gorgeous, welcoming winery. 

   De’Ricci Cantine Storiche

De’Ricci Cantine Storiche

As a center of wine production since the Etruscan era, it’s no surprise that Montepulciano was built on wine—literally! Below the streets of the town are a network of caverns built into the stone centuries ago to age and store wine at the perfect temperature year-round. Many of the wineries in town offer tours and tastings; this one is the most stunning, with a vaulted ceiling of terracotta bricks reminiscent of a grand cathedral and a labyrinth of ancient tunnels.

   Fortezza Medicea

Fortezza Medicea

This 13th-century fortress was once a defensive structure for the Medici family as they consolidated their power across the region; today, it serves a much more friendly purpose as the headquarters of the local wine consortium, which manages the production of vino nobile de Montepulciano, among others. Learn about this beloved local wine and taste plenty of samples, then head outside to stroll the manicured, shady gardens that overlook the Val d’Orcia below.

   Palazzo Comunale

Palazzo Comunale

If you’ve traveled through Florence on your way to Montepulciano, the design of this local town hall might look familiar: It was modeled after the Palazzo Vecchio in the capital city on the order of Cosimo de Medici. Turn left in the building’s courtyard to enter the bell tower, from which you’ll get amazing views of the valley that extends below you. A terrace level is accessible by elevator, but if you can brave the narrow stairs from the terrace up to the top of the belfry, you’ll be able to see all the way to Siena.

   Piazza Grande

Piazza Grande in Montepulciano

One of the few truly flat spaces in this extremely hilly town, this central piazza has been the heart of life in Montepulciano since the Middle Ages. It’s bordered by the duomo, town hall, and the palazzos of several formerly prominent families, all of which are breathtaking to see. On one side, you’ll see a stone well topped by a griffon and lion, the coat of arms of the powerful Medici family (if you’re traveling through the region, you’ll spot this symbol in many places!).

Montepulciano: Stay

   monteverdi.

Monteverdi

About a half-hour drive south of Montepulciano, this hotel nestled in the hills of Tuscany is Giada’s happy place! Monteverdi has a little bit of everything: a great spa to relax in, culinary classes where you can learn how to make pastas with their in-house chefs, an art gallery, and scenic hiking trails. Sign up for an on-property cooking class with chef Giancarla at their Culinary Academy.

Montalcino: Eat

   il giardino.

Il Giardino

Run by a husband (the manager) and wife (the chef), this intimate restaurant’s arched interior and neutral tones set the tone for a cozy meal. The pastas and plates here like pistachio-crusted lamb chops and stuffed rabbit are a bit more refined and elegant than traditional Tuscan restaurants, and they also offer an extensive wine list. Order a local rosso di Montalcino or brunello di Montalcino wine with your meal!

   La Sosta

La Sosta

This charming wine bar and restaurant in the heart of town is steps from the medieval fortress. Be sure to sit outside on the back terrace for the best panoramic views. In addition to an excellent wine selection, they have an amazing blanched green bean salad with walnuts that's lightly dusted with an anchovy-and-caper dressing—it was so good, Giada went back for it again the next day!

   Locanda Demetra

Locanda Demetra Montalcino cooking school

This farm-to-table restaurant and cooking school owned by three siblings has a covered outdoor terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills, making it a great place to unwind and enjoy an Italian lunch at a leisurely pace. They make a delicious brunello jam from their grapes, which are unique to the Montalcino area.

   Ristorante Taverna del Grappolo Blu

Ristorante Taverna del Grappolo Blu interior dining room

This cozy restaurant is our pick for a classic Italian meal where you can enjoy Tuscan charcuterie, pasta, and wines. Inside has a rustic ambiance, while outdoors, you can grab a cozy bench for two with a view of the Tuscan countryside.

   Porta al Cassero

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Porta al Cassero

If you're looking for a quick and casual meal, this osteria offers a menu of salami and cheeses to start and traditional Tuscan dishes like pici with ragu, polenta, wild boar and bean stew, or roast rabbit. Come here for a simple homestyle lunch!

Montalcino: Do

   casanova di neri.

Casanova Di Neri wine tasting Giada De Laurentiis

Visit this winery to learn about the unique wines you can find in Montalcino, from brunello to rosso and toscana. On weekdays, you can take part in a wine tasting experience in their farmhouse. Not only are the folks here generous with their wine pours, the professional staff are generous about sharing their knowledge, too. You'll walk away feeling like an expert about wines of the region.

   Farmacia Salvioni 1905

Farmacia Salvioni 1905 Pharmacy and Perfumery

This old (founded in 1905!) but beautiful historic pharmacy sells its own cosmetics line that started in the same laboratory where brunello wine was created. Browse products like serums, creams, perfumes and supplements featuring natural ingredients like grape extract and plant stem cells, then head out the back of the shop for a surprise: a small terrace with a stunning Tuscan view!

   Montalcino 564

Montalcino 564 linen shop

Owned by a husband-and-wife duo who run several shops around Montalcino, this is an Italian fabric store that also doubles as a wine shop. It’s a great place to buy souvenirs like home accessories, and the owner can make anything you want out of his gorgeous textiles made from linen, hemp and natural cotton. It’s a great place to bring home one-of-a-kind keepsakes like tote bags or towels that you’ll be able to use every day.

   Villa i Cipressi

Giada De Laurentiis at Villa i Cipressi honey bee apiary

This estate farm started producing honey more than three decades ago, and expanded into grape and olive vineyards to make brunello di Montalcino, rosso di Montalcino and grappa di brunello and extra virgin olive oil. Visit the winery to learn how they make these regional wines, and see the apiary to learn about the honey production process and taste all the types of local honeys they offer!

Montalcino: Stay

   villa palazzetta.

tour guide agency tuscany

This stunning villa overlooking Montalcino and its valley is elegant and homey all at once. Nestled in the Tuscan hills, the property has its own vineyard and an olive orchard but is less than a 10-minute walk to the historic center of town. You'll want to spend all day by the pool with its incredible views of Val d'Orcia!

San Gimignano: Eat

   gelateria dondoli.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Gelateria Dondoli

Rightfully famous for its innovative flavors, this gelato shop run by the charismatic Sergio Dondoli is a must-visit in this picturesque town. Sample saffron and pine nuts, grapefruit and sparkling wine, chocolate with cherries and chili, and many more flavors, all made with local raw milk and hand-picked fruits and nuts from across Italy.

   Ristorante Il Pino

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ristorante Il Pino

On a quiet side street near the arch of Porta San Matteo, this lovely family-run restaurant has been around since 1929 and is known for traditional Tuscan dishes prepared with local ingredients. Dine by candlelight in the warm, rustic setting with exposed bricks, medieval arches and original cross-vault ceiling from the 1200s. Beef is their specialty, so be sure to order the carpaccio and bistecca alla fiorentina!

   Osteria del Carcere

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Osteria del Carcere

At this cozy, welcoming wine bar, enjoy casual snacks like Tuscan salumi and cheeses, bruschette, and warming soups, all paired with local wines. Ask the friendly staff for a recommendation—they’ll be sure to pour you something utterly delicious!

San Gimignano: Do

   camminamento delle mura.

San Gimignano Walls

San Gimignano is one of the many Tuscan towns surrounded by an ancient fortified wall, a remnant from the turbulent medieval era when warring families fought for control of the region. Recently restored after an earthquake, this walkway atop a section of the town’s walls offers magnificent views of the countryside.

   Torre Grossa

San Gimignano Torre Grossa

In the Middle Ages, wealthy families in San Gimignano each built their own towers to show off their power—at one time, there were 72 towers looming over the small city. Today, just over a dozen remain, but the tallest is this one attached to the local town hall. Climb the 218 steps to the top for a panoramic view of the vineyards and rolling hills surrounding this picturesque town.

   Visit a Local Artisan 

San Gimignano art souvenir shop

The main street of San Gimignano is lined with tons of wonderful artisans’ shops, from leather goods to ceramics, carved alabaster from nearby Volterra, and, of course, lots of delicious food and wine to take on your travels. Stroll up the pedestrian walkway and pop in wherever catches your eye—we guarantee you’ll find some memorable souvenirs.

San Gimignano: Stay

   hotel la cisterna.

Hotel La Cisterna

Set in a 14th-century building in the historic heart of San Gimignano, Hotel La Cisterna overlooks the ancient Piazza della Cisterna. Choose a room with a memorable view of the medieval piazza or the endless Tuscan countryside—you can’t go wrong either way. As a bonus, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Le Terrazze, is the only eatery in the piazza with a panoramic view. From April through October, they also run a bar on the terrace that opens in the afternoon. It’s one of Giada’s favorite spots for an aperitivo!

   Hotel L'Antico Pozzo

Hotel L'Antico Pozzo guestroom

This elegant, 18-room boutique hotel is full of charm and tucked away from the crowds touring San Gimignano (fun fact: It’s owned by the same family as Ristorante Il Pino around the corner). Descend the stone staircase into the lobby and continue deeper to discover their underground cellars. The hotel’s medieval structure has been well-preserved and beautifully furnished to offer comfortable, traditional-style guestrooms. Room types here are named after Italian poets; the spacious, high-ceilinged Dante Rooms are our favorite.

Best tour in Florence! (In Russian)

The guided tour with Caterina was amazing, in 2 hours she managed to dive into the history of Florence and show us a few spots. She recommended what to see while we were there as well. Our tour was in Russian language - Caterina speaks perfect Russian. We highly recommend her!

tour guide agency tuscany

We had a delightful morning tour with Fedor who is charming and very knowledgeable, he made our visit to the Ufittzi so interesting and informative and he tailored it to enable us to enjoy the artworks we particularly wanted to see which was very special. He talked us through the history of Piazza della Signoria and the statues in the Loggia della Signoria, and also took us into the the Duomo and the made the whole morning a wonderful experience. We learnt a lot about the history of Florence and it added so much to our whole visit to this amazing city. He organised our entry tickets so we didn't have to queue which was very helpful. We couldn't recommend a tour with Fedor more highly.

We took two tours with Caterina Florence city tour and to Uffici museum. Caterina is an outstanding guide. She has emmence amount of knowlelge which she shares with enthusiasm. We enjoied the tours very much and we highly reccomend the experience.

Caterina is a charismatic and knowledgeable guide. She gave us a great tour in the center of Florence

I took Money, banks and art tour with Caterina. Absolutely fantastic experience, it was my second time in Florence and only thing I regret is that I haven’t got tour in my fist trip. Wonderful stories, mystery of the city and Medici family creates unforgettable vibes of that magic city. Hope to come back and explore more soon.

We booked tour with Fedor to see the main historical attractions of Florence. Fedor guided us through the city and we enjoyed the tour till the last moment. He provided the information in a way that it was easy to understand and to follow for everyone, including teenagers. Afterwards we decided to book another tour, to visit the Basilica di Santa Croce. We enjoyed it as much as the first one. Main points: Knowledge licensed guide, passionate about sharing his knowledge with others Tours are suitable for all ages Adaptive to customer's request Multi lingual Helpful advice for visiting Florence We highly recommend Fedor and Florence With Guide.

Tuscan Tour Guide

Over 20 years ago I began a tour guide company “Tuscan Tour Guide”.   Since then it’s grown beyond what I could have ever expected! I’ve been fortunate enough to have led tours for Craig Newmark, Gordon Getty, Boston’s Radio KISS 108 & NECN TV host Billy Costa and thousands of customers including cruisers of Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas, Azamara, Viking, NCL, Oceania, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Carnival & Disney.   I’m a regular on KSRO radio news talk in California and have appeared on the History Channel.

The tours which I’ve tweaked throughout the many years in the business, now seem to be satisfying customers’ tour expectations. I provide historical and thematic full-day & half-day tours of important Tuscan and Italian destinations covering any of the following topics: Etruscan, Roman, Medieval & Renaissance art-history, architecture, culture, cuisine and wine……..Tuscany is the only part of the world that produces Chianti, Brunello and Super Tuscan wines!

Although I’ve been doing similar tours for over two decades, no tour has ever been the same due to the Socratic method I use to keep all customers involved, thinking and engaged.  For an additional cost we can design a private tour to suit your expectations regardless if a couple, family or big group. I’ve made lifetime memories for thousands of travelers and have helped them discover the many hidden treasures found throughout Florence.

As tours operate 12 months a year, Tuscan Tour Guide’s  growing guide service is available for Florence, Tuscany & Italy. Please take the time to read what many happy customers have to say about me and Tuscan Tour Guide on Tripadvisor.
