A vacation in Tuscany is a dream for nearly all, a memory for many, but a true experience for only a few. Covering nearly 9,000 square miles of central Italy, Tuscany holds countless ancient villages, medieval castles, restaurants, artisan shops, endless miles of beautiful landscape, and four major wine regions filled with hundreds of wineries one can choose to visit. Sorting through the endless choices can be overwhelming; deciding which places to visit and see can make or break your dream vacation.
To truly experience Tuscany and the best it has to offer on your own is a daunting task. To make your stay in Tuscany be everything you’ve ever dreamed of, to see and experience it for all its worth, you need someone who knows Tuscany. You need someone who cares about Tuscany and you! You need Franco Tours.
Imagine a vacation where you truly relax, a time and place where someone else takes care of you. Where you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your dream vacation while Franco caters to you. Your personal Franco Tour is private, tailored to you and your party of two to six. And the best news is – Franco does the driving! Anyone who’s ever driven in Italy themselves, or simply heard stories from friends and family knows how daunting a task it can be, creating stress and taking away from the relaxation of the trip. Franco will pick you up at your hotel and personally guide you through the Tuscan countryside and share its rich history while you relax and enjoy the ride in a comfortable, air-conditioned mini-van. Door to door service is available from cities of Siena, Florence and Pisa and their surrounding areas.
As you arrive at each special destination, be ready for an amazing experience! Renowned for its vineyards, Tuscany is filled with world-class wineries, producing some of the best vintages. And, as a wine expert and connoisseur himself, Franco will take you to only the best of the best where you can fully experience the intricate process of creating exceptional Tuscan wine. Be enveloped in endless rows of vines and stroll through both original, ancient cellars and new, state-of-the-art cellars. And, of course, there will be Tuscan wine – lots of wine – to taste. Your palette will be elevated to a whole new level of taste experience as you sample the many varieties of Tuscan wine and enjoy every flavor, every note. But don’t worry – Franco is driving so you can savor all you want.
Yes, Tuscany is known for its wine, but it is also famous for its cuisine. In Tuscany, food is an experience, a celebration, an event spent in the company of family and friends. During your Franco Tour, lunch is an event in and of itself. Served in one of many medieval villages and boasting of several courses offering an expanse of food varieties, lunch is a banquet of food, wine and fun; so eat, drink and be merry!
And to bring the Tuscan wine country experience home with you, Franco will make sure you have the opportunity to shop for wine, food products such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar and local artisan products.
When Franco delivers you to your hotel at the end of this amazing day, you will realize you aren’t saying goodbye to a tour guide, you’re saying ciao to a new friend.
