13 Jun Tuk Tuk Tour of Florence and its hills
Florence is a city rich in history and art plus there are sweeping hills of Tuscany to enjoy; it’s a hub of activity to see and explore. And what better way than discovering the sights of the Renaissance capital from the back of a three wheeled ‘Ape’, the classic Italian tuk tuk style car.
You will be driven through the cobbled streets of Florence taking in all the major sites before ascending up the southern hills to the lookout at Piazzale Michelangelo, which offers the perfect picture postcard views of the city, and its famed Duomo. Later, you will discover the hills of Fiesole which are lined with 15th and 16th century villas and where you will visit a five-star hotel, originally a 15th century convent, now surrounded by beautiful Italian gardens where you’ll enjoy aperitivo from the Tuscan ‘heavens’ offering the most stunning views of Florence.
For wine lovers, take a separate Tuk Tuk experience into Chianti to visit a number of stunning wineries and drink in, literally, the quality product on offer. See inside the cantina of historic castle nestled in the northern hills of Florence and sample the local Sangiovese grape wines whilst learning the Italian techniques of wine making during this unique winery tour.
