A special day in Tuscany – Florence, Vinci and…

Florence and tours in Tuscany: 

Last year I had the chance to travel to Sardinia, Florence, Vinci and Anchiano, Lake Como, Milan and Bologna.

As I’ve mentioned before I’m a huge fan of Europe but there are certain countries I enjoy more to spend holiday meaning that I’m staying longer than a week.

Florence is very expensive but it’s worth a short break or more if you can afford. There are many tours, exhibitions, museums and fantastic restaurants. And people on wheelchairs are welcome. Glad I saw that. Besides you can shop till you drop or easily escape to Rome or Milan in a high-speed train.

Plan it carefully otherwise you’ll run off time. I saw mainly tourists from the USA, South Korea and Brazil and Israel however people come from all over wishing to take the best of Italy.  There are also many British citizens living there. For fans of art, Florence is a bit of heaven. Atlantic Emotions shared the best sights, tour offer and prices.




Skip the line in Italy

Visit Siena and its Cathedral, Fiesole, San Gimignano, Vinci, (take the train to Empoli and then the bus), Pisa and the leaning tower, Lucca and Chianti. Fiesole is an Etruscan-Roman Town that offers a rich artistic heritage and an extraordinary view of Florence.

A wonderful view over the Montalbano hills which was a source of great inspiration for Leonardo.A full day is needed if you go by train and try to catch a taxi as it can get a bit weird if you take the bus instead of taxi! http://www.museoleonardino.it For more information and reservations visit http://www.artvita.com.
