What you'll do

I will take you up to a gorgeous private rooftop where the wonders of Florence beckon from arm's reach. You will be welcomed with a stunning 360-degree panoramic view of the city, drinks, and a delicious assortment of seasonal Tuscan delicacies--the traditional evening "Aperitivo" experience elevated in a superlative setting. I will then talk about the iconic historical buildings and monuments that one can almost reach out and touch. After a brief introduction of the birth of Florence, I will talk about the history and architecture of the buildings in such a way that it will be through storytelling while interweaving the traditional Tuscan cuisine, art, music, and contemporary Florentine life that are directly related to each building. I will also discuss the Medici Family, their impact on the city and the rest of Europe and include saucy stories from their reign that will make the history of the city come alive for you the next time you walk through it. Afterwards, I will answer any questions and give several tips and well curated recommendations. You will leave feeling fulfilled and intimately more acquainted with this captivating city...not to mention have fabulous photos!

The Rooftop Aperitivo was the most awesome experience--Vera prepared delicious Italian hors d'oeuvres--graciously laid on the table, the roof top was at Sunset and the sky was on fire behind the Duomo. From the roof we could see all the other monuments and places that Vera mentioned. She is knowledgeable about Florence, but also has great "true" anecdotes about the Counts, Dukes, and Medicis... We had a fabulous experience and I would recommend this to anyone who comes to Florence and who has good taste, and wants a taste of history along with the present day. Mille Grazie!!!!

Vera is an incredible host and the view is arguably one of the best in the entire city of Florence. I would do it again to sit and take in the view while learning about the history of Florence!

Stop what you are doing and book this experience right now. This was AMAZING - from the view to the insights to the food and wine, I loved every bit of this. I seriously am completely sold on Airbnb experiences after this experience. Vera knows Florence history and has a beautiful story-telling style that makes Florence's interesting and sorted history come to life right before your eyes. She has a true passion for the city of Florence and gave us tips, as well as following up with emails of her go-to's in the city. I can not recommend this experience enough. The group I was in talked about it our whole trip. Simply a stunning experience!
