Florence Italy Tour travel review, Castillo de Nero
What’s up!!!!! At the end you can watch a short video we made of our last vacation this summer in Tuscany (please note all our videos are made with our small camera, sorry not professional — but promise to be fun!). Nestled in Florence, Italy it is one of the most romantic places we have ever visited. We gave it a full travel review through this blog video, and you will certainly feel like you went back in time and visited a far-away story-tale land.
When we reached Rome and decided to take the scenic route, we knew we would give this entire tour an incredible travel review. We rented a car at Rome airport and guess what — NO GPS! They gave us a little map and there you go! Get there however you can. Other rentals did offer GPS but they were all out. We were on a venture of a lifetime…finding a three-hour away spot in a country where we spoke Spanish and English and a rare combination of both that we made up — but no Italian.
Driving and following the pretty green map the car rental company gave us, we literally had to stop a couple of times to take in the scenery that took our breath away. If we can recommend anything in this travel review of a tour in Italy, take the scenic route from Rome to Florence.
We decided to stay at the luxury five star Castello Del Nero which is an old castle turned into a very special luxury hotel overlooking valleys of private vineyards. They make their own wine. They make their own olive oil. The cheese and the vegetables are fresh — the bread baked that morning. And the views…breath-taking!
Watch this video for the pictures and our rating…you will be surprised to know that…there were snakes near the castle! And that is no fairy tale…
