Scot took my husband and me around Rome in March 2014. He was unbelievably knowledgeable and shared interesting facts about all the sights. He also had wonderful recommendations about places we could see and restaurants we could try without him. I will definitely be in touch with Scot if our travel takes us back to Italy.

We have toured throughout Italy with Scot and Rina multiple times, and I cannot give them a high enough recommendation. Rome, Florence, Siena, the Amalfi Coast - they know it all so very well, and make every moment of a tour such a pleasure. Visiting the Vatican, Ancient Rome, Ostia Antica, Borghese Gallery, or wherever you choose to go, you... More

Rina and Scot were the difference between a good trip to Italy and a great trip to Italy (our first). We did both car touring and walking tours in and around Rome, Florence, Siena and the Tuscan countryside. Rina and Scot made sure it all went smoothly and added in depth knowledge of the art, culture and architecture. And food!... More

I can't imagine traveling in Italy any other way. Scot and Rina made our trip stress free from the start. Planning our week was very easy and tailored to our travel style, including a phone call to go over travel plans. Rina met us at Florence airport and made sure we were checked into our apartment. All train tickets and... More

Spent 8 days in Florence with two side trips, Venice & Rome via the train. If you have not traveled Europe before, this would be a great introduction. Florence is home to the original Michael Angelo's "David", great restaurants, and bargain leather goods. We rented a house high on a hill and while the view was spectacular, I recommend staying...

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
