Federico!! We can't thank you enough for spending the day showing us the beauty of Firenze, sharing some of its humorous historical aspects and just being an all around AWESOME guide. I completed the bike tour 13 years ago and it was always my most treasured memory of my visit to Firenze. 13 years later, now accompanied by my husband and it was even better than what I had remembered.
We enjoyed the all day bike tour on ebikes (our first time and with zero regrets). Some of the hills are steep and although John and I are active it was SO nice to have the little boost from the engine on the steeper inclines. It also gave us time to take in the scenery instead of huffing and puffing and lamenting our physical exhaustion.
The meal midway through our day at La Casa del Prosciutto hails as the best meal of our trip. The setting is lovely, the cooks in the kitchen were warm and welcoming and the foooooood, oh the food was all kinds of spectacular. John and I still talk about the fegato and the garden vegetable pasta dish. Cannot comprehend how they capture such flavors in the simplicity of the ingredients. The chefs are magic. Our incredible meal time was also enhanced because it was in such great company. Laughing and exchanging little life stories with Federico and our riding companion Francesco became the true icing on the cake.
Grazie, grazie, grazie Federico and Weliketuscany for creating another wonderful memory for me and now for my husband too.
