Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was Great! We have worked with a number of different tour guides and agencies and have very high expectations. Our expectations were definitely met! Booking process was easy and went very smoothly. Great communication from Ann and thorough details and descriptions. We loved all off our guides – Elena, Lucia, and Vincenzo. They made it interesting for the kids and were very attentive to my mother’s needs (bad knees). The drivers were great and informative and effectively handled challenges (traffic accidents/delays) when they arose. Everything ran smoothly, making our tour experience fantastic. I would absolutely recommend you to our family and friends. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino.
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.

Florence to Cortona and Arezzo Private Day Trip
Just wanted to let you know …our tour was GREAT, our guide was GREAT (really terrific) and we had a wonderful time. WELL worth it! Even though neither Lucca nor Pisa are particularly “amazing” towns, our guide made them be so…had a wonderful lunch, and really enjoyed it.
Very well worth the value!
Thanks so much – very professional from start to finish…
Dear Nancy Aiello Team,
Your family walking tour of Ancient Rome was the best tour we experienced in 18 days of traveling in Italy and Greece with two young children and four adults. Throughout the private tour, our guide very creatively engaged the attention of both the 3 and 6 year olds, no mean feat, while still managing to present material of interest to the adults. I will highly recommend your team to friends and family. Thank you!
