The multilingual reception staff of the Grand Hotel Mediterraneo are at your disposal for booking independent and guided tours of Florence, Chianti and the characteristic villages of Tuscany.
Florence’s hop-on-hop-off ‘open top’ bus service is ideal for those who have little time and prefer the convenience of traveling by bus.
FLORENCE Florence's history, art and culture discovered from Piazzale Michelangelo and from the streets and alleys of the center. The visit to the famous Uffizi Gallery, where you can see Ponte Vecchio, can hardly be forgotten.
FIESOLE Hidden among the Florentine hills, Fiesole shows its Etruscan and Romanesque origins by the amphitheater and the archaeological museum. The Medici Villas reveal the wonder of the Florentine Renaissance. Perfect for a day outdoors both on foot and by bicycle, Fiesole, just 10 minutes from city centre, is perfect for those who want to get away from the chaos of Florence
For those who want to go out of town Tuscany can offer a large selection: Siena, Monteriggioni and San Gimignano are just some of the cities that can be reached in an hour's drive.
SIENA – Visit the city centre, the Duomo cathedral and the famous Piazza del Campo
SAN GIMIGNANO – The Towers, the frescos and all its artistic treasure
MONTERIGGIONI – The gentle hills, the walls and breathtaking views
Chianti's food and wine tours are the perfect choice for gastronomic enthusiasts. They have the chance to visit vineyards, wineries and naturally taste fine wines and local product.
For a slightly longer tour, we suggest that you to go just beyond the borders of Tuscany, in the Cinque Terre, with their characteristic landscape set in the Ligurian coast, wonderful in summer, but full of charm at any time of the year.
