ROME TO FLORENCE VIA SIENA

Your driver, who speaks perfect English, will pick you up at your hotel in Rome and drive directly to the heart of Siena, where you'll meet your local guide for a two-hour guided tour of the highlights of one of best preserved "gothic" towns in Italy. You'll see all the main monuments, including the Cathedral and the Piazza del Campo. Walking through the narrow streets, still intact since the Middle Ages, you will also have time to venture into the back roads, leaving the crowds behind, seeing many hidden aspects of the town such as the ancient trail of the "pilgrims road" (which went from Rome all the way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain). Free time for lunch (choose a local restaurant-trattoria or even a quick snack on the spectacular Piazza del Campo) and after a good espresso, you'll continue on your way, with a stop for a picture at the village of Monteriggioni (a 13th-century fortress town, remembered even by Dante in his Divina Commedia). If there's time, you can even pause for a good glass of wine! After that you'll drive on to your central Florence destination.

This tour lasts eight hours and ends at your hotel in Florence. Prices include private car and driver; two hours with a personal tour guide is an optional extra. Please note that while your driver speaks English, his job is to get you safely from one place to another, so he should not be expected to chat while en route. Entrance tickets and meals are not included, and no touring in Florence is planned. Lunch in Siena usually costs about 60 Euro/person. Children under 6 are free of charge.

ROME TO FLORENCE VIA PISA

Your driver, who speaks perfect English, will pick you up at your hotel in Rome and drive you west to the Mediterranean. You will drive along the coast for about an hour and stop in Bolgheri, a fairy-tale town that has become world famous for the superior wines it exports, such as Sassicaia. You'll have time to get out and explore around the medieval castle which lies at the end of an arrow-straight 4km-long road lined with ancient cypress trees. This is a perfect place to have an authentic Tuscan lunch before the short drive to Pisa.


B
ecause it is essentially out of the way, Pisa has the distinction of being a celebrity destination that is visited by relatively few tourists. It's a tiny town with a handful of charming narrow streets, most of which lead to the astounding Field of Miracles – a vast open plain blanketed with bright green grass and hosting the town's exquisite white marble cathedral and its renowned belltower, more commonly known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It took three centuries, starting in 1173, to build this unique monument. You will have time off for lunch here, after which you'll meet your local guide for a two-and-a-half hour tour of the city's main sites. If you wish, you may also climb the Leaning Tower with the guide. After that you'll drive on to your central Florence destination.

This tour lasts ten hours and ends at your hotel in Florence. Prices include private car and driver; two hours with a personal tour guide is an optional extra. Please note that while your driver speaks English, his job is to get you safely from one place to another, so he should not be expected to chat while en route. Entrance tickets (20 Euro/person for the Tower), and meals are not included, and no touring in Florence is planned. If you choose the option with tour guide, your guide will have purchased your Leaning Tower tickets before the tour (but you will need to pay the guide for them in cash). If you choose the option without a guide then you will need to purchase your own tickets beforehand, online (please ask us for the correct time to schedule the visit). Lunch in Bolgheri usually costs about 60 Euro/person. Children under 6 are free of charge.

ROME TO FLORENCE VIA ASSISI

Your English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel in Rome and whisk you away from the chaos of the city, out onto the fast road into Umbria. During the 90-minute trip you will cruise past miles and miles of silvery olive groves, bright yellow sunflower fields, and mysterious mountains guarded by impressive castles. After a short coffee break, you will meet your local guide.

Assisi, the immaculate medieval hill town that was home to Italy's patron saint, St. Francis, is always a vortex of beauty and spirituality. It also offers some wonderful frescoes by Giotto and Cimabue. Anyone who takes the time to meander through the impressive Basilica, its quaint chapels, and the narrow cobblestone streets of the town will come away enchanted. Artisan shops abound where you can purchase exquisite ceramics, leather and paper items. After you enjoy lunch in town, you'll continue on your way, driving along the shores of Trasimeno, Italy's largest non-Alpine lake. Mountains and hills surround the silvery water, and they are lined with vineyards and studded with medieval castles.

This tour lasts nine hours and ends at your hotel in Florence. Prices include private car and driver; two hours with a personal tour guide is an optional extra. Please note that while your driver speaks English, his job is to get you safely from one place to another, so he should not be expected to chat while en route.

ROME TO FLORENCE VIA ORVIETO

Your English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel in Rome and whisk you away from the chaos of the city, onto the famed autostrada. Delighted to let him do the driving, you will see snow-capped mountains in the far distance, and completely untouched ancient hill towns almost directly overhead. In less than an hour you'll leave the highway and wind your way up a charming tree-lined country road and into the town that hosts one of the world's greatest artistic masterpieces: the Cathedral of Orvieto.

Your driver will take you to meet your local guide so that together you can admire the peerless marble decorations of the cathedral façade. Inside, you'll see Signorelli's unforgettable frescoes depicting the end of the world, the resurrection of the dead, Heaven and Hell. Next you'll explore the lovely little hill town of Orvieto, also famous for its colorful ceramics and its crisp white wine. You will visit a local wine cellar for a tasting, and then have time on your own for a lazy lunch before continue on towards Florence. On the last leg of the trip you will be treated to one of the world's most unforgettable views: the thickly wooded, steep Florentine hills, dotted with massive Renaissance villas and lined with vineyards, olive groves and rows of cypress trees. Keep your eyes peeled now and you will be rewarded with a fleeting glimpse of Brunelleschi's dome before plunging into the heart of the Renaissance itself.
