This 3 day, 2 - night tour gives you the freedom to visit wherever you want in Florence on the first day. Then head to a more in-depth and guided tour of the nearby villages the next day, and the final day is perfect for catching up on anything you may have missed out on! 

 

 

Itinerary:

 

Day 1 - Welcome to Florence

Arrive in Florence at your convenience. Head straight to the accommodation to drop off your bags. Or visit the Tour Provider's office where the team will be happy to make bookings, reservations, provide you with maps or help you in whatever way we can. 

Check-in time for your accommodation is from3 pm, but the accommodation can hold luggage for as long as necessary. We recommend you arrive as early as possible to make sure you don't miss out on everything Florence has to offer! 

 

 

Day 2 - Full Day in Tuscany!

On the second day, join one of our expert guides on a day trip to the Chianti region, starting at 9:40 am, for some stunning scenery, amazing food and quality Tuscan wine

 

We begin at a local Winery and Wine Tasting School, located an hour out of Florence, where you taste four different types of wines. These include the famous Chianti Classico, Brunello of Montalcino, Super Tuscan wines, a 30-year-old balsamic vinegar, and the delicious truffle extra virgin olive oil. Here, you will be taught by local experts about how to recognize different flavours and develop your taste buds to the intricacies of this local produce. Unlike a regular school, you aren't expected to take notes or any tests, only fun is in store here!

 

The second stop is a local winery located in a beautiful area, well known for the production of the D.O.C.G. Vernaccia white wine facing the famous towers of San Gimignano. The winemakers will guide you through the vineyards and the cellars, and they will share the secrets of the wine and oil production as well as the best wine and food combinations. At the winery you will enjoy 3 wines; the famous Vernaccia white wine, a rosè wine, and a Chianti Colli Senesi D.O.C.G. You will also have the opportunity to buy local products and wine at a great price to bring back home or ship to friends and family.

 

Our third stop is San Gimignano, where you will be free to visit and spend time wandering through the narrow streets shopping in the local shops of the most beautiful medieval town. Check out the tower filled skyline while enjoying ice cream from a world-class gelateria. Your tour leader will pass on maps and tips about where we recommend you visit. 

Once we head back to the accommodation, you'll be free to take a look at the recommended restaurants and bars or stay in for a relaxed night, it's up to you!

 

 

Day 3 - It's Time to Say Goodbye...or Maybe Not!

On the third day, you will be required to check out by 10 am, however, you can store your bags with the Hostel and continue to take a look around Florence, you can join a city tour, we highly recommend you use the double-decker hop on- hop off bus to tour the city and visit the highlights of the city, including Fiesole.

This is the day to cross everything you have left on your bucket list off!

We promote a youth market 18-39 years old. What does this mean? Does it mean that you have just had your 40th birthday so you won't be welcome if you are a more seasoned traveler? That we are going to card you at the door? No way! 

 

It means that we have a general audience of college students, backpackers, solo travelers, etc... that often fall into this category. The tours are more fast-paced, budget-minded and include activities for travelers to meet and connect with other passengers of the same age from all parts of the world who share the same interests, lifestyles, and travel styles. 

 

We are not strict with the age limit and people older than 39 are always welcome to join our tours as long as you are young in heart, have no walking disabilities and are happy to be with younger people. 

 

Our brand is designed around this unique experience geared towards younger travelers, so only passengers that fit this demographic travel with us.

Don’t panic! The first step is to speak to your bank. All purchases made on our website will appear as purchases being made in Switzerland as our website booking provider is a Swiss-based company, so be sure your bank is aware you will be making Swiss purchases to avoid having your payment flagged as possible fraudulent activity. If you cannot resolve the problem with your bank, you should email info@italyonabudgettours.com immediately so we can proceed with a manual booking.

Let us start by saying that If you want to pay for one of your products but the Credit Card is in a different currency than the currency in which we sell our tours, then you have 2 options. This can be selected on the screen where you enter your credit card details by selecting "view currency conversion options": 

 

Option A

TrekkSoft does the currency conversion to accept the customer's currency, exchanging that into the currency in which we operate our tours.  This is called dynamic currency conversion since we display the actual USD price  (Or whatever currency your card is in) to you at the time of booking and this is the amount which is debited from your card without any further conversions or charges.

 

Option B

The card issuer ( your bank) does this currency conversion and applies a commission and processing fee. So this is when a tour is in EUR for example, and you are charged in EUR even though your credit card account is in USD. So your bank gives you an exchange rate which you will only see on your monthly statement. 

In either case, as we are not a bank, the conversion is not the same as you would see on the likes of xe.com since these are the wholesale currency values, these rates are not available to anyone in reality. 

The retail rates are always higher since there are differences in buying selling rates, and there are commissions and transaction fees when exchanging currencies. Whatever currency you pay, we will receive the amount as displayed in EUR
