What You Can Expect
How you spend your time in the city is up to you! Perhaps visit Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo’s David sculpture, or visit Florence Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori) to climb up Brunelleschi’s Dome. Relax in Boboli Gardens, stroll through bohemian Oltrarno or soak up the views from Piazzale Michelangelo. Entrance fees are at your own expense.
Your meeting point to return to Rome is Piazza del Duomo. Your host will show you the exact point to meet in the evening. At your arrival to the station, you will be transported to your city center hotel or the meeting point.
Alternatively, upgrade to include an 1-hour walking tour of Florence to see big-name sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Duomo (exterior), Porta Paradiso and learn about the city history. The upgrade option also includes a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the world-famous Uffizi Gallery with 1-hour guided tour. After the guided tour, use your free time to explore the art gallery independently, and see its Renaissance masterpieces including Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation. Lunch in a traditional restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce is also included in your upgrade. After lunch, enjoy approximately 2-hours of free time to continue exploring Florence.
Meet back up with your host at a prearranged time, and then travel from Florence Santa Maria Novella Railway Station to Rome by train. Your experience finishes at the original departure point.
Although we took the independent tour and were on our own after our arrival in Florence, the tour guides, Miriam and Claudia, were friendly, helpful, and entertaining. They answered any questions that we had and provided suggestions on what to see and how to get around. The train was clean and comfortable. Overall, a great day trip and a wonderful experience!
the tri;p was wonderful. The guide was considerate and knowledgeable and easy to understand. Our trip was the high speed train from Rome to Florence and it was also great to tour Uffizi. The Uffizi guide was also excellent. Thank you for a wonderful time and yes you can use my name to let others know about your service. We are going to California in the spring and will contact you when plans are arranged. Than ks again. rate is a 5
