Do I get my own room?
If you are joining an existing group you will definitely get your own room at no extra charge! If more then 5 people join the group then the other villa on the property will also be rented and will be at your disposition. If you are booking out the villa for a bespoke friends or family holiday and want more then 5 people to come on your trip then rooms will become double occupancy.
Do we have free time some of the nights?
Absolutely! 3 nights are all yours to explore town and do as you wish, I will give you a list of restaurants and I am available to make bookings for you at any time and for any place that is available.
Can You Help Us With Flight Arrangements And Hotels?
I can definitelyprovide a list of hotels and restaurants in all major cities in Italy and can speak to the establishment myself if you are having issues booking with them.
Is the water safe to drink in Florence?
The water in Florence is safe to drink regardless we will provide you with bottled mineral water for the duration of your stay in the villa.
Can children come on the food tour?
Absolutely! If they are 15 and over they can come to all the activities outlined in the brochure. If they are under 15 year of age some of the experiences on tour may be boring or not suitable for them. In this case for an additional cost we can arrange a professional nanny (with references and a first aid certification) to mind your kids while you enjoy your time out. These issues can be discussed in depth to make sure everyone’s needs are met in the most professional way.
