Hi Livia and anyone else on our cruise,

We are really looking forward to this vacation! I need a few more people to join us on a private tour of Florence and Pisa with a stop at a Chianti winery, Fattoria San Michele a Torri Firenze. Reservations will also be made for the Uffizzi Gallery & the Accademia museum in Florence.

This is the first trip to Florence and Pisa for my wife and me so I wanted to make sure we are able to see the famous Leaning Tower and Michelangelo's David. This should be an excellent opportunity for others to see the sites with the added benefit of having our own private driver. Much better than being on a bus with a lot of other people. Also, less expensive! If we get three other couples to join us, the cost will be about $99 per person, a little more if we only get two additional couples. Either way it will still be a much better deal than the shipís. (That price does not in include entrance fees, meals, or tips. A light wine tasting is, however, included in the price.)

Anyone interested? Iíll be happy to answer any questions.

I'm sorry, I haven't. However, I plan to this time around. Here is the Web site for the company Princess has an arrangement with
There is also a FAQ section on their site. Hope that helps some.

Update: Another couple has decided to join us. I now have openings for two more couples.

The tour company we are using is called Papillon. <Link removed per Forum Rules. Sorry... -LP> I think it is going to be great trip!

This is also my first time to Princess and going to Europe.

Hi Livia,

I think it is going to be a great trip! However, I didn't expect that it would take me so much time researching hotels for Rome and Venice. Plus, you then have to decide which tours to take. I signed up for some other private tours on another board. I also signed up for some of the ship tours. Additionally, I plan on trying a couple DIY stops. I still don't know exactly what we are doing in Rome and Venice.

How are your plans going? BTW, my private tour is now full.
