Sometimes travel is tied to some special occasion: anniversary, anniversary, or honeymoon. On a special day, you want something special, agree? If your holiday falls on a trip to Florence and Tuscany, then this article is for you.
I collected 6 unusual excursions (in fact, it’s not even an excursion, but more of an impression) that you can order in Florence, please yourself and surprise your loved one. I will say right away that all the excursions presented in this article are not cheap, but participation in them should be remembered by you for a long time.
So let’s go.
Trip through the Florentine suburbs driving the famous Italian Fiat 500.
Old cars are carefully restored, and now everyone can ride on it as a driver or passenger. It is better to book a tour for the whole day, then on this small typewriter you will drive through the Tuscan towns, hills and get acquainted with the Chianti Valley and its wines.
Surely, you’ve already heard about the truffle. This is an elite expensive delicacy, the price of which reaches 7,000 euros per kg. Chefs of the best restaurants are ready to give huge money for the highest quality product, if only to please their discerning guests. The season of hunting for white truffle (the most expensive mushroom in the world) begins in mid-September, while black can be hunted almost year-round. Usually, hunting is accompanied by trifolao and specially trained dogs, which these golden mushrooms have been training to look for since childhood. If you go hunting for entertainment, that is, on an excursion, then after the hunt itself, you will be tasting truffle-based dishes (bruschettas, salad, pasta, fried eggs and even dessert from this unusual mushroom).
Flying over Tuscany in a balloon.
Fly over Tuscan hills and vineyards, see cypress trees and narrow rural paths from a bird’s eye view – is this not a dream? You can surprise a loved one or a soul mate by ordering an individual balloon flight over Tuscany. A glass of champagne and a traditional Tuscan breakfast after landing will complement your flight experience.
Wine tour by helicopter.
Another tour that will allow you to enjoy Tuscany from a bird’s eye view. Meet the picturesque Tuscan towns, taste Chianti wines, try traditional Tuscan dishes. Meanwhile, look at Tuscany from a different angle. The cost of the tour is from 720 euros per person.
Rent a legendary Ferrari car
Are there anyone who has never dreamed of being behind the wheel of a sports car, feeling like a VIP person, or impressing the other half? I think not! In Florence (or Siena ) you can fulfill your old dream! The sports car Ferrari 458 Italia, F403 or California 30 will bring you directly to the hotel, and you can drive there to beautiful places in the region, visit the towns – pearls of Tuscany , traditional restaurants and shops. In short, find out what Italian Dolce Vita is. The price of pleasure for two is from 4200 euros.
Wedding in Florence.
All girls dream of a wedding abroad, even if they do not admit it. About half of the brides probably dream of a wedding in romantic Italy. Florence is a great place to hold a symbolic ceremony or ceremony of renewing vows. You can organize a wedding completely on your own (but for the complete organization of a wedding abroad, even my experience was not enough), or order the organization of the celebration from specialists. The cost of a symbolic ceremony is from 1,600 euros per couple, this price includes: the ceremony itself, renting a terrace or a hall, flower decoration, including a bride’s bouquet, photography and dinner. In my experience , this price is more than adequate. In addition, there is a Russian-speaking organizer.
