We decided to hire a driver and take our two small girls out to see the country during our 10th wedding anniversary trip to Florence. We chose to visit two of the Medici Villas as both my husband and 8 year daughter are quite interested in Medici history. Villa Poggio a Caiano is beautiful, relaxed and without tourists (we actually saw several school field trips which the girls loved). The villa and gardens are beautiful but not overwhelming. Our driver, Heliana, was charming and so informative! She also took us to Villa di Artimino and arranged for a lovely private wine tasting. We stayed at the Bernini Palace Hotel in Florence which was amazing and Lorenzo who arranged for our side trip (as well as many other extras) was a true asset!
