All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you

This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do

Day 1: Flight and Artistic Appreciation

Arrive into Florence and meet your transfer driver at arrivals. You will then be whisked to your hotel to drop your bags and freshen up before heading out to eat lunch and explore.

You are utterly spoilt for choice when it comes to museums, palaces and churches in Florence. Start with the obvious and head to the deservedly iconic Florence Cathedral (Duomo) - if you're feeling up to it, you can climb the 463 steps to the top of the dome or the 414 steps to the top of the neighbouring Campanile for incredible views. Afterwards, spend the rest of the afternoon feasting your eyes on some of the most celebrated artistic masterpieces, Michelangelo's 'David' and Botticelli's 'The Birth of Venus' in the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries are the obvious ones, but there are many, many other options of course.

As evening settles in, stumble upon one of the many restaurants and bars in the centre for a long and leisurely evening of eating and drinking, Italian style.

Day 2: Wander with Wonder

Today is all about soaking up the beauty of the city. In fact, we think the best way to really get a sense of Florence is to simply get a little lost along its winding streets.

When you do decide to look at a map, make your way to the busy Ponte Vecchio and then up the hill a little to the Piazzale Michelangelo for the best views in the city. Sit and enjoy the panorama for as long as you like, it is truly beautiful. Then, starting with an Aperol Spritz in the evening sun, spend another evening joyfully eating and drinking far too much. After all, you come to Italy as much for the food and wine as you do the sites and scenes.

Day 3: Beautiful Boboli

Start your last day in Florence with a lie in and a last Italian breakfast before heading out to the Boboli Gardens.

This is a real botanical paradise, filled with an exquisite collection of sculptures dating back to the 16th century, and is the perfect place to relax after a busy few days of sightseeing. After a late lunch, meet your transfer driver back at your hotel, get to the airport ready for your flight home.
