Sergio was an informative and fun guide who crafted our itineraries to suit our interests. We spent a day in Tuscany visiting the Florence American War Memorial, San Gimignano, lunch in a stunning vineyard, and much more. On the second day he transformed a car ride from Florence to Milan to soo much more -- biking in Lucca, a picnic... More

My father and I traveled around Italy, specifically Florence, Orvieto, Positano, Pompeii, and Rome. Heliana was our wonderful guide, she answered every possible question we could've had and made the experience fun as well as informational. She showed us around the beautiful and history-rich city of Florence, but also helped to coordinate other tours in different towns and multiple transfers.... More

Heliana Vogli made Florence and our travels through Italy a wonderful experience that my daughter and I will share for a lifetime!!

My family and I were lucky enough to have Sergio with us in our trip to Italy - Tuscany and Rome. More than a driver, Sergio is a traveller and a citizen of the world - polite, well read and well informed. We had two transfers with him: from Florence to Siena and from Siena to Rome. On both occasions... More

After our stop in San Gimignano, Sergio arranged a stop at a winery for wine tasting and a delicious lunch. Our last stop before heading to Rome was... More

My wife and I used Florence Connection for a recent ( September ) European cruise. Heliana was our guide. Getting off the boat and meeting her was seemless and easy. After being picked up at the LaSpezia port we drove to Florence. Heliana was personable, engaging and her English is superb ( my Italian is horrible ). The day tour... More

Sergio and Heliana exceeded expectations and made our trip to Italy spectacular! We had Sergio booked to drive us to Castello di Verrazzano, and on the way he provided a rich history on the city of Florence, and made a surprise stop at a memorial for U.S. soldiers who lost their lives in Italy during WWII. Sergio brought a lot... More

Sergio was so kind, knowledgeable, accommodating and wonderful. He had the best suggestions, taught us so much and made the trip relaxing, exciting, and stress-free. I would recommend him to anyone. My family was visiting Florence for the first time and wanted to do a couple day trips and working with Sergio made all the difference!

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
