Our group was treated more like family rather than a group of tourists, which is really what this whole experience is about. In just one day, it's impossible to really see or experience an entire region — especially one as diverse as Tuscany. But I still feel like I managed to get a nice little taste.
I did my tour with a company called Italy on a Budget Tours , which specializes in tours for the crowd. Their tours are also very budget-friendly! You step onto the road, and, if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you might get swept off to. Join the ADB Community!

I never made it there, but I explored the streets of Siena thoroughly during a day trip from Florence. I entered the Duomo and the other buildings connected to it. Very interesting! I planned to and even got in line to buy a ticket. But, even though the brochure I had in my hand said that the Duomo was 7 Euro to enter, the guy at the ticket counter tried to charge me almost double!
How great a day is it? I did the tour a little while ago and loved it. Was this something separate you did from Busabout or was something they recommend? The tour was recommended by Busabout, but operates completely separately. I did quite a few Busabout-recommended tours this summer all across Europe, and they were all really great! That second photo of the Siena Cathedral is absolutely beautiful.
I loved this post and will use it to help plan my trip to Italy in the spring! Thanks for sharing. Amazing pictures! When we visited Florence and the area we used Walks of Italy for some tours and they were also fabulous. We look forward to looking into this tour when we get back to Tuscany next year.
