Great way to see Florence - It was amazing to watch how the drivers navigate the narrow streets with these huge buses


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

this was the best way to get around florence and learn where all the sights and attractions are without ever leaving the bus. stay on for as long as you like. get on and off as many times as you like. bus runs frequently so never much of a wait. plan your itinerary from the comfort of the bus, headphones included as your driver narrates along the way. great value.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We bought a 3 day package but only used it one day. We did enjoy that day's trip. I think that a 3 day package is too long. I forget the difference in price.

All of my family group voted this the best attraction as the best of our four day trip to Florence. The reasons included the great commentary, the free wi-fi, the chance to see more of the city whilst resting your feet, the trip to Fissile, the view of the city from the hill and, again, a chance to rest your feet. Full marks from us.

The open top bus tour was, as all of the ones we have been on before, was very good. We were able to get an overview of the city and then get off where and when we wanted. Really good way of seeing a city and good value for money too.
