Your home away from home is a stylish 4 Star hotel, nestled along the banks of the Arno River just far enough to get away from the city, but still walking distance to all the action. The newly remodeled boutique hotel features elegantly styled rooms with daily breakfast. Relax at the beautiful rooftop lounge with a birds eye view of the city!

Moderate Activity Level: Florence and Tuscany are situated on hilly terrain. While this is a relaxed Itinerary, participants should have the ability to stand or walk for at least 90 minutes. While most tours will take us downhill, the ability to walk up steep hills is recommended. Since much of the area was built in the Renaissance period, some multi-level buildings do not have elevators. Disabled accessibility may be limited in this region.
