Our overall experience was very positive. The booking process was excellent. Everyone at Nancy Aiello tours was extremely responsive to all of our questions (even those unrelated to the tours!). The tours were excellent as well. Samuel did a great job with our tour in Venice. Filippo, who led our tours in Rome, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized and gracious – and he did a tremendous job of engaging our boys in the tours. He enhanced our experiences in Rome beyond description. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
FLORENCE TO CORTONA AND AREZZO PRIVATE DAY TRIP
Gain insights into two well-preserved medieval Tuscan towns on this Florence to Cortona and Arezzo private day trip. Leave Tuscany’s busy capital behind and travel through the countryside with your personal driver/guide. Experience the highlights and delights of Cortona and Arezzo, two beautiful art towns linked to historical past traditions. Your day trip starts with hotel pickup by private vehicle for the 1-hour drive (traffic pending) from Florence to Cortona, made word-famous by Frances Mayes author of the Under the Tuscan Sun book. Enjoy the rolling Tuscan landscape of vineyards and cypresses en route. During the scenic journey your expert driver/guide provides a comprehensive and informative introduction to the colorful history and traditions of the area with insider anecdotes and knowledge, pointing out top sites and hidden gems.
Cortona is a small walled town perched atop a hill. The town offers sweeping views out over the surrounding countryside. Wander its cobbled streets and walk back in history. Feel the atmosphere of this medieval town enclosed by its original towering city walls. Cortona is also known for its excellent trattorias. Your driver/guide will be glad to suggest delicious choices, or you can let your taste buds be your guide. The choice is entirely yours! You will then head to Arezzo, where you will explore its well preserved historic center. The charm of Arezzo is twofold as it receives a fraction of the tourists of neighboring Florence and yet it has all the fascinating ambience of a well-preserved small city with stunning architecture, moving art and winding streets. At the same time Arezzo is a beloved and well used shopping town, especially if you like to browse quirky old antique stores, fine jewelry and leather goods.
