Day 2: Florence
Boboli Garden and Villa Bardini‘s Garden
The art and cultural metropolis of Florence is a must for all travelers to Tuscany. The Cathedral dominates the cityscape and together with the Campanile and the Baptistery forms one of the most magnificent works of art in the world. The austerity and beauty of this city and the pride of the Florentines is manifested in an unique way in the Palazzo Vecchio. On our city tour we will explore the main sights of the old town. In the afternoon we will discover the Boboli Gardens that were taken care of by the De’ Medici and stand as a perfect example of a typical Italian Garden. These gardens have been used to inspire many other European courtyards. Statues, grottoes, and large fountains create the feeling of an open-air museum. We will then walk through the gardens of Villa Bardini to admire the sculptures, fountains and beautiful flowers there.

Day 3: Pisa by train
Botanical Garden in Pisa
In Pisa a “miracle” awaits you in the true sense of the word. At the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) we will find the legendary Leaning Tower of Pisa. It may be one of the most touristy things to do but make sure you take a photo with you holding up the tower! The Botanical Gardens of Pisa, covering 3 hectares, are somewhat hidden-away and little-known but nevertheless of great interest. They are considered to be one of the biggest University botanical gardens in Italy. Overnight at the hotel in Florence.

Day 4: Siena
The Garden of Villa Geggiano
Buffet breakfast at the hotel. Who can resist to the charm of the laid-back town of Siena, where time seems to have come to a standstill? An enchanting labyrinth of medieval alleys surround Piazza del Campo, one of the most beautiful squares of Italy. Just outside Siena, high amongst the vineyards, we will find Villa Geggiano. Together with its Garden it forms an unusual combination of history and scenery. The characteristic Garden Theater and Fruit Garden with terrace and layered ponds are most impressive.

Day 5: San Gimignano & Volterra
Fountains and Piazzas
Buffet breakfast at the hotel. Today we will enjoy the town of San Gimignano. The daunting family towers can be seen from far away. Each family kept trying to surpass the others building higher and higher towers, and these impressive structures stand testimony to this competitive spirit to this day. We then make our way to Volterra, famous for its alabaster. The former Etruscan settlement is located on a hill with a splendid view of the surroundings. On request, a visit to an alabaster laboratory can be arranged. Overnight at the hotel in Florence.
