We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

From your Florence pick up, enjoy a unique activity in Tuscany. Not many people get the chance to go truffle hunting with a professional and dogs in tow. We will collect you from your Florence hotel either in the morning or late afternoon and bring you on this special walk through the Tuscan forest. 

You'll be with your Private Truffle hunter for 4 hours and walking with the dogs for roughly 1.5 hours. You'll get an introduction and some history on the activity as well as intricate secrets about the truffles, including insights on the environment and truffle biological cycles. You'll be shown how the specialised dogs are trained to be skilled in Truffle hunting, just make sure to grab the truffle from the dog before it gets eaten! Your local, private, truffle hunter will teach you the old traditions and techniques still used today, in order to discover the precious delicacy.   

After the hunt, head back for a Truffle based lunch! Which includes Salumi, truffle oil on bread, handmade pasta mixed with the days findings and 4 wine tastings of the best local wine that goes with the local delicacy.

    I was wondering whether it is possible to visit Florence and Pisa on a day trip from Rome. We only have one day available to visit these places and don't want to choose on just one. Thanks in advance for your help

  • Ciao Julia! What a great question! It happens quite often that we have guests that would like to see as much as possible in one day due to their tight schedules.

    While I personally believe it best to spend one night in Florence, to be able to enjoy and get a real feel for the city and its history, it is absolutely doable in one day.

    The tours we offer in Florence and Pisa that you can find on our website are designed both to start and finish in Florence. However, our great tour designers will be happy to set up a private driver for you from Rome, to include a stop in Florence and a visit in the city center and the Accademia, and then continue towards Pisa.

    If you are looking instead for a more cost effective option, I highly suggest booking the fast train from Rome to Florence early in the morning (it takes no longer than 1.5 hours and it much cheaper than a private driver) and meeting your private guide and driver directly at the Florence train station!

    Just send us an email at info@eyesofrome.com and we will send you an outline of all options available!

    Ciao Steph,

    Thanks for your question! The best time to tour Chianti is Spring or early October (during the end of the harvest)

    The Summer usually becomes very hot within the fields and an active activity wouldn't be as enjoyable for some. 

    We have many new Tuscany tours coming soon so stay tuned for your perfect experience! Grazie again and please feel free to email us if you have any other questions :)
