"Me and my friend had an amazing experience on the Let's Go North tour. Every one of the guides were friendly, accommodating, and insightful. They definitely went above and beyond to make sure we were getting the best out of the experience. I loved everything about the places we visited and the hotels we stayed at. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for anyone looking to experience Italy the true Italian way!"
"Italy on a Budget was a great experience if you're wanting to have freedom as a traveler as well as it reduces the stress of having to organise public transport in other countries as it is already organised for you. Overall the tour is a great experience and you have great team leaders to help you in your travelling adventures. Although we could have organised everything ourselves, it’s the knowledge, information and support from the tour guides that is priceless. Being exposed to local food, accomodation and locally run activities I left saying “this is why we left the planning to someone else” Thanks guys, we will be back."
Check in to your accommodation and meet your tour leader at 7:30pm for an original and fun orientation walk of the city to discover the new city and the local traditions.You will see the famous gothic Cathedral, the old bridge " Ponte Vecchio", We will end the tour in one of the busiest streets of Florence renowned for the many bars where to hang out at night. Here we will stop at the bar rated by the locals as the best aperitivo place in town.
