A Florence Hills TourWritten by Suzanne Morrison
Italy, a veritable treasure chest of culture and heritage - with its food, wine, culture and history, is always on top of a European tour list. A tour to Italy would not be complete without going to Florence. This city is in heart of Tuscany and is sometimes considered birthplace of Italian Renaissance. It is a place that is famous for its abundance of fine art and architecture and in modern day, its fashion and leather goods.
If you are feeling a little tired out after a few days of sightseeing in Florence, a Florence hills tour can be a great way to relax and wind down. With a great ambience and an aura of solitude hills of Florence are very popular and ideal for those who wish to take a break from city.
If you only have a few hours to spare and don't want to venture too far from Florence, then a trip to town of Fiesole is highly recommended. Set amongst hills, just 5 miles from Florence, Fiesole makes a pleasant half-day trip from Florence and provides a wonderful view of city. You can get there by bus from centre of Florence in around 20 minutes.
If you're feeling more energetic or have a little more time to spare you can walk from centre of Florence to Fiesole in around 2 hours. Once in Fiesole you can easily spend two or three hours wandering round, taking in sights and views of Florence and valley below. Sights include a Roman Amphitheatre and baths dating from 1 BC, Duomo and a few small museums.
If you have a full day to spare there are numerous tour companies that can organise day trips by bus, walking tours or biking trips. Alternatively you can hire a car and use a map to discover delights of Tuscan countryside for yourself.
Why Some Car Transport Services Are Better Than OthersWritten by Nick Telford II
Car manufacturers and dealers have been doing it for years and now car transport services are making it simpler for average consumer. Transporting cars, whether from manufacturer to dealer or from one city to another saves on physical wear and tear of vehicle's exterior as well as mechanical stress on engine.
In order to select a transport service, first question you'll want answered is how much will it cost? As with any type of shopping you should comparison shop prices and services from various car transport companies.
You'll need to know origin point and destination for car and approximate date you want vehicle to depart. The car transport service will also need make, model and year of car in question.
The client needs to know what type of transport they are looking for whether it's door-to-door or point-to-point (i.e. a central location in one city to another.) Some transport services also offer covered transport, which will protect car from weather elements, rocks and dust. This can be very beneficial in transport of vintage or classic cars
Once a company is selected, payment arrangements will need to be made. Most companies want a deposit of 15 to 20% prior to car's departure and full payment made when it arrives at destination. These payments are usually required to be in form of cash or a cashier's check.
It's usually a good plan to check fine print on contract once it's been agreed to. If you cancel it, transport company may charge a fee. It's also a good idea to put a clause somewhere in there that allows for you to cancel if they have not picked up your car within some number of days of scheduled date.
