Sun in Tuscany, the best tour operator in Florence
Sun in Tuscany is a legally licensed tour operator which offers authentic, tailor-made tours, in both Florence and in the Chianti region. We offer our tours to small groups and, privately, when requested.
Our philosophy is to raise awareness of impart bits of Italian culture and tradition, with particular attention to the Renaissance period, during which beauty reached an unparallelled level. For us it is important to create a friendly relationship with our guests, connecting them to the area and the locals by giving them a truly authentic and original experience.
Our main tours are guided visits to museums and the most important churches in Florence, visits to the Chianti region with carefully selected itineraries, visits to the best wineries to taste and learn about famous Tuscan wines and culinary experiences to discover where typical Tuscan dishes originated whilst also learning how to cook them. This is all conceptualized in a luxury state of mind, in a way that is understated, elegant and, above all else, fun.

Chiara Becchetti is a French – Italian tour guide and leader in Florence and Tuscany, while Tayu Vlietstra is a Dutch-Italian chef and filmmaker, both speak fluent English. ‘We love to travel and learn about different worlds and cultures. Our greatest joy is the feeling we get after our tours our complete, having been able to provide our guests with an unforgettable experience’.
