Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Florence:"We loved Florence! Loved seeing it all - loved the Art crawl (Untours event), the mercado, the Duomo.. and our guide/contact was the best person possible!!" Ginny and Lee Brown
"Florence is just an amazing place to be and I'm thrilled that you added it. Living in a community and having a wonderful apartment with a small lawn was great for our down time...Mary Jane was the best onsite staff that we have experienced." Dawn Molendi
"We both enjoyed the flexibility that Untour provided us. I really appreciated the greeting we received at the airport and the help in getting settled in the apartment. The apartment was excellent and met all of our needs." - Marcia and Nathan Kaminski
"Florence is enchanting. Having an apartment instead of a hotel room was fantastic. Also not doing 11 cities in 11 days was great. We were able to set our own pace and discover the charm of the area on our own. Having a contact person as near as the phone was also great." Brenda & Hank Stroup
