We had another wonderful breakfast and had very mixed feelings about leaving the beautiful castle. As we finished exploring and taking photos of the property, we saw a couple coming down the stairs of the tall tower on the property. It was somewhat of a shock, since we had no idea that a guest room was located in the tower. The couple …
... us they would walk us there. As soon as we arrived in Florence we found out that not bringing jackets was a bad idea. It was pouring rain with lightning and intense thunder clapping. We ran through the town without umbrellas getting drenched with 8 small Asian college girls who were screaming with each boom of thunder. Quite the introduction to Firenze if you ask us.
The hostel that we were shown to was actually perfect. The chance of meeting the girls and finding a ...
... the difficult time getting to the hotel today. The GPS is great until you get into the tight little streets. But we did make it to the hotel and are safe. Didn't run over any pedestrians or hit any scooters. The Duomo was magnificent - now I have seen the ceiling in person and it is beautiful.
The paintings and sculptures are unbelievable. Someone was playing the organ when we went in. Amazing sound!! We ...
... in his Divine Comedy. I walked up to a vantage point above the main part of town for some incredible views, but unfortunately it was hazy. By this time it was about 16:30 and I was starting to get hungry so I walked back to the main Piazza and went to Trattoria Blu for a Panino and coffee. After my snack I took a walk up into another part of town to get some photos, but there wasn’t really much to see.
By this time the Bus was waiting so ...
Today, we had the opportunity to listen to two social workers talk about their experience with counseling prostitutes in Italy! One was from *****ia and the other from Romania. It's a Touchy subject, I know. It was a very sad story to hear about how young woman are often taken from their homes, sometimes even sold by their fathers in order to make a profit. Once they are here in Italy, they are stripped of their identities and passport and required to pay ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Agriturismo Savernano Reggello
Non so da dove cominciare...secondo me questo agriturismo è fantastico! Non ha difetti...la cucina è eccezionale (la ribollita ce la sognamo ancora...quella surgelata è una bestemmia confrontata con quella della signora, moglie del proprietario. X non parlare della fiorentina e di tutte le torte della mattina...mmm una delizia!); le camere oltre ad essere molto belle, spaziose, pulite e dotate di climatizzazione caldo/freddo, sanno ricreare un ambiente "caldo" e accogliente...(poi ci sarebbe da aprire un capitolo a parte per i bagni...le cui docce sono "familiari" talmente sono enormi...ma davvero...) tutte diverse sono curate nei minimi dettagli (l'abbiamo potuto constatare visto che eravamo 2 coppie di amici, quindi 2 stanze diverse!)
An amazing experience
This agriturismo was amazing. Not only were we treated with the utmost respect, but the hospitality was top-notch. My best friend and I were in Europe for 50 days and this was, by far, the most cultural experience of our trip. David and his family are wonderful people and love having guests. Although I was with my friend, I would definitely recommend Savernano for a romantic getaway or a nice cultural experience. The food that is served at night, the olive oil, the wine, the proscuitto, the olives and the hospitality are all made and perfected on the property. I can't wait to return with my husband in a couple years!!!
5 stars all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wouldn't stay anywhere else! Superior, Colorado
The rooms were decorated beautifully, each with a private bath and gorgeous views. The fresh flowers in each of our rooms was a very nice touch. The food was mouth watering. The staff always had a smile and were very polite. We are a large family of 6 and we were accomodated very nicely. 5 star treatment and facilities with family country charm, is the best way to explain it. The grounds are well kept with plenty of room for nice long walks, playing football, or just sitting on the the veranda and taking all that beautiful scenery in. It is a working agriturismo, so there are vineyards and olive groves. Whether your looking for a romantic getaway or a nice family vacation spot, this B&B will not disappoint you. Words can not express how much we enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful large rooms with private baths. Simply but elegantly decorated with comfortable antique wood or iron beds, armoires, dressers, etc.. Spotlessly clean. Personable host who speaks enough English to get by. Very accommodating and knowledgeable about area. His assistant however was raised in USA and is fluent in both English and Italian. The breakfast is typical Italian-breads, plain cakes, biscuits. cheese. prosciutto, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice and cappucino. Buffet style-very abundant. The locale is spectacular. 360' view of the Tuscan hills and valleys. Peaceful and romantic. This property is a working vinyard/winery and olive grove. Our only regret was that we were not here during or just prior to the harvest. We imagine the hills at that time of year would be resplendant with the aroma of sweet grapes ready to be picked and fermented into the very good Chianti that Agriturismo Savernano bottles and sells right there.

Amazing Villa in Tuscany!
This amazing villa is tucked away from the tourism of Tuscany. It's about a 20-mins train ride from Florence. The grounds are better than from "Under the Tuscan Sun"-- they are filled with olive groves and grape vines (plus some beautiful, potted lemon trees). It has a B&B feel with only a handful of rooms. The decor is gorgeous and simple. The food was delicious! We ate dinner at the Agriturismo every night of our stay. The food is made by the owners (husband and wife) and served with their own wine and olive oil. It's the perfect escape from the hustle & bustle of most vacations. I would be hard-pressed to stay anywhere else in Tuscany.
I stayed 3 nights to the Agriturismo Savernano with my hausband and our 3 small children.
If you are going to florence, italy and you are planning to stay in a B&B in tuscany, this is the place you must go. Located in Vaggio, about 30 mins drive from florence city centre and near to The Mall factory outlet, this is the best B&B we have been to. Situated on a hill top in vaggio, it is a little difficult to find (cos there are no signage from the main road) but it is definitely worth the effort.
