My wife and I just got married on July 3rd and this trip will be our honeymoon. We plan on doing some touring, because neither of us has ever been to these destinations.
I've done some research and clearly most tours are very expensive. But, if I can get some people together, it makes the cost of touring cheaper.
I need to get 6 people, now this can be couples, family...etc. With the 8 of use, this will bring the price of the tour down substantially (pricing at the end).
Let me know if your interested.
These will be private tours by Alex. He speaks primarily English but can also translate into Italian and Russian.
August 9th Florence (following is off their site)
A shore excursion in the famous cities of Tuscany, Pisa and Florence. Departure from the port of Livorno.
The driver will pick us up in the the morning and will take us back to the dock in the afternoon. The tour will start with a stop in Pisa to visit the famous “Leaning Tower”, the Duomo, and the Baptistery.
The tour continues with a drive through Tuscany to the city of Florence.
There we can visit one of the most important collection of Italian art at the Uffizi with the original statue of David by Michelangelo, and the "Uffizi Gallery" with the world masterpieces by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and all other best artists of the Renaissance. After that we can visit the church and the monuments around the city. You’ll see: the Duomo, the Giotto’s Bell Tower, Pitti Palace the Santa Croce Church where the most important Italian artist as Michelangelo, Galileo are buried.
The company can also make advanced reservations for the Accademia Museum and the Uffizi Gallery for us. We'll need to ask them when booking the tour, and they will be happy to provide us this service at no extra cost.
