Italy on Your Mind?

Aloha! The pandemic has affected our traveling vacations, our dream trips abroad and much more but it can't stop us from dreaming and planning our next international trip! Now that Europe is open for tourism, with many precautions in place, we can have some hope that in the near future we will be back to enjoying our favorite things. Personally I'd indulge in a cold yummy gelato while walking across the Ponte Vecchio, sipping some wine and enjoying amazing pasta in the hills of Tuscany.

Last year I had the pleasure of traveling to Florence with Couturista Travel on a 6 day program where I got a personalized winery tour, the most exquisite Italian cuisine from the most prestigious local Chefs at their Michelin Star restaurants, a truffle hunt, a VIP shopping experience visiting local Florentine fashion designers and ateliers. It was everything you would dream to experience in Italy and you get to live it like the locals do.

Now Couturista Travel is offering one day tours in Florence! Whether you are already in Europe or you are planning your Italian dream trip, you must book one, two or all three of the different tours available now.

Couturista is offering three different tour programs according to your needs. It is super easy to book them, you can do it online or by phone. Lets get to business and let me tell you what each of them are all about:

Made in Florence tour:

It is their signature shopping tour! It offers a unique day visiting Florentine boutiques only locals know about, where you will find high quality, one of a kind finds at a great value. This is the perfect shopping experience for the trendsetter, the demanding consumer and fashionista. You will also learn the story about how fashion was born in Florence and how trades were passed down from generation to generation.

Bespoke Florence tour:

Discover the luxurious Florence designers with a designer and luxury expert that will guide clients through an itinerary of high-end visits to renowned fashion names and exclusive brands well-known by connoisseurs. From cashmere to gold, leather and lace to shoes and perfumes, you will discover the joys of the “Made in Italy” craftsmanship. Your day of high-end visits can be specialized around your particular interests.

Custom Private tour:

This is a personalized tour tailored exclusively to your needs and requests. Wether you are looking for a specific pair of Italian shoes or the perfect gifts, or would love to visit the designer outlet, Couturista will plan this tour exclusively to and for you. You will get special access service and design your day dedicated to any areas: women/men fashion, leather, shoes, fine jewelry, accessories, vintage shopping, children, home décor, kitchen, and lots more.

From my own personal experience, I can guarantee that you will have the perfect shopping day with the best finds at great prices and otherwise a very unique, special Florentine day! Andiamooo Amici!
