Florence is the great renaissance city. Its Uffizi gallery holds one of the most important collections of art in the world including Botticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. The city’s churches and palaces are a masterclass in renaissance architecture. We have a black book of private visits, all led by our wonderful guides, who range from local experts and museum curators to an artist and sculptor. Enjoy picnics and painting classes in some of Florence’s hidden private gardens.
South of the city the hills of Tuscany stretch to Siena and beyond. Enjoy villa life in the vineyards of Chianti and Brunello. All our villas are fully staffed – private hideaways to relax and enjoy the food and wine culture of the region. They are also ideal for exploring Tuscany’s hill towns including Montepulciano, Pienza, Volterra and Cortona. Experience the legendary Palio horse race in Siena from your own private balcony.
