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.
An amazing tour! Our tour guide to the museum, Marco, had a passion for the art and it's history that was incredible! Only downside to the tour was the transportation back to the hotel afterward. After the driver made two of the four stops, he went well out of his way to pick up some one else, possibly another employee (?) before making the last two stops. What should have taken no more than an hour to get back to the hotel took two hours. A sour ending to an incredible day in Florence.
The staff were so helpful and kept us informed every step of the way. Highly recommend.
