Have you ever been to Florence?

Florence, the spectacular capital of the region of Tuscany, is located on Italy's northwest coast. It is a stunning medieval city divided into two parts by the River Arno that flows from the Apennines through Florence and Pisa and on to the Ligurian Sea. Florence is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its overflow of palaces, churches and museums filled with masterful paintings and sculptures.

The city was found in 59.B.C by Julio Caesar's war veterans, who named it "Florentin", for its flourishing beauty. Florence experienced its time of greatness in the 14th century when the powerful family of the Medicis made its entry onto the world scene, eventually becoming bankers to the papacy. Cosimo Medici became the ruler of Florence and sponsored artist such as Donatello, Brunelleschi and Filippo Lippi. In 1469, the grandson of Cosimo, Lorenzo, took over power. He was responsible for the great development of art, music and poetry; and was a patron to philosophers and artist such as Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. From 1860 to 1875, Florence was the capital of Italy.

"In general, we appreciated the organization. The lunch was particularly excellent as the service. The boat tour was very pleasant and gave us the opportunity to understand the region and its beauty. But Cinque Terre has become too touristic for our taste. "

"This Vespa tour was a wonderful experience! Our tour guides Antonio and another (I cannot remember his name, but he was perfect) were very patient with us. Both my husband and I were not experienced enough to drive our bikes with our teenage boys on the backs (our fault). They figured out a plan to make it all work out. Both tour guides took our boys on the back of their bikes, letting each of us drive our own Vespa. This a tour I will never forget. I highly recommend the experience and the people working at this company were wonderful and very accommodating."
