Four days of culture, tradition and wellness.
Departing from Rome by private helicopter and arriving in Florence.
First day dedicated to visiting the beauties of the Florence. This city is known first and foremost for its remarkable art history, and it is not for nothing that it is considered the cradle of the Renaissance.
The ancient buildings all fit snugly in a compact radius and practically everywhere you look, you will find 15th century palaces, cobbled streets, rustic churches, towering marble basilicas and magnificent art museums.
The Palazzo degli Uffizi, built in the 16th century, houses the largest collection of Italian Renaissance art in the world, while the striking green and white marble Santa Maria’s Basilica draws visitors to its stunning frescoes by Domenico Ghrlandaio. In the same vein, a visit to Florence would not be complete without a stop-off at the fortress-palace, Palazzo Vecchio or the San Marco museum which showcases the art of Fra’ Angelico.
The hopelessly romantic Florence can be crisscrossed on foot, allowing visitors a unique opportunity to literally stroll to the pace of this city. Located on the banks of the Arno River, Florence is picture-perfect at any time of the day, but is especially breathtaking at dusk. Be blown away by the grandeur of Brunelleschi’s red cathedral dome or Piazzale Michelangelo where the most spectacular panorama of the city can be enjoyed.
Florence is a gourmet paradise, borrowing the freshest ingredients from the surrounding Tuscany’s countryside. Excellent wines, savory meat and tasty traditional soups can all be experienced in family-run trattorias or Michelin restaurants – Florence has it all.
Departing in the late afternoon with a luxury car with a driver and arriving, in a short time, in one of the most beautiful resorts in Italy, “Il Borro”, located in the enchanting Tuscan countryside, belonging to the unquestioned master and designer Salvatore Ferragamo, to enjoy three days of dreaming. The activities to be done within the estate are endless.
From the wellness center to enjoy the best relaxation with culinary tastings and wines to enjoy true Italian flavors, from sports activities to rejuvenate body and mind up to bouncing balloon or helicopter tours to discover the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany.
Come back in Rome with a private helicopter.
