Tuscany is considered to be very picturesque and it really has much to offer for any individual. There are both natural beauties and manmade ones. There are countless churches, palaces, fortifications and different other buildings which represent considerable interest for architecture devotees. But all these are famous tourist attractions which have a worldwide fame. If you would like to explore the place which are far off the beaten path – this private tour in Florence is right for you.

During the tour we will explore several places aside from the popular tourist destinations. In the morning I will pick you from your hotel and we will drive towards a small village Chiusdino. It is situated at the very heart of Siena countryside that is right in the center. This little village is famous for the ruins of the ancient St. Galgano Abbey.  It is worth noting that the abbey was built approximately in the 12th-13th century in the shape of a classic Latin cross. Not far from the abbey we will find the Montesiepi church which is even older than the abbey. It was built in the 11th century and you can still find there the legendary sword in the stone.  It involuntarily reminds of King Arthur, but this sword was plunged in the stone by San Galgano.

The church itself appeared a bit later. It was built around the sword in the stone to honor San Galgano. As a professional private guide in Florence I will show you lots of other interesting places.
