The most natural and authentic way to discover the beauty of Tuscany is by foot. Surround yourself by the calmness of Florence’s nature as you make your way out of the city center and into the hills of Florence where you will arrive at Pian dei Giullari, a charming and quaint zone, built along the road that goes to Impruneta, which remained practically untouched over time. This area is known for its rich villas, nestled within the countryside, and makes for the perfect backdrop to a day of hiking. One famous villa in this area is Il Gioiello, where Galileo Galilei lived and died.
This private tour will start in the center of Florence. You will be in the safe hands of a Tuscan expert, passionate and full of knowledge about the area, so take advantage and feel free to ask your guide everything you want to know about these ancient trails, or even where to eat or what to see during your visit in Florence. Your expert guide will lead you past Florence’s best and brightest monuments, crossing the Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s oldest bridge, until arriving across the river in the San Niccolò district. Enjoy your time stopping for photos along the way, especially when you reach the infamous Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the best panoramic spots in the city. Lying below the overlook you will discover “Le Rampe”, built between 1872 and 1876 by architect Giuseppe Poggi who originally presented his urban plans to celebrate the idea of Florence as the capital of Italy in 1865. The fountain was recently restored and is a great spot to stop for memorable photos along the way.
This private tour is all about you, so take in all the beauty and enjoy the best spots of Florence as you make your way into the luscious, green hills. Feel free to even rest and savor a coffee admiring Florence’s best overlook before breathing in the real Tuscan atmosphere of olive groves in the countryside.
