Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Independent Florence Day Trip from Venice by High-Speed Train. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The train was very clean and friendly to use, with great views of the country side. It was very easy to navigate and find our way around Florence once we got there. The instructions were easy to understand with great description. Florence is amazing and beautiful! Completely recommend taking the time and doing this day trip.
This is a very good idea. Basically you get 8 hours on your own to discover florence and if you dont fancy going into details, just use the 3 hop on off bus routes and enjoy the panormic views. However uffizi visit is higly recommended..
Great trip on the fast train to Florence from Venice we were travelling over 300 km/h is in some section of the tunnels and whizzed by. Upon reaching Florence we hopped on the hop on hop off bus and had a great trip around the city later travelling by foot covering some of the areas that we wanted to see most. A great day out.
It was perfect organized. We have got axactly what I expected. Thank you a lot!
Very nice, Florence is very Romantic place especially the view from the mountain. Also, shopping is very very good. there is a fantastic open market near Santa Maria Station, I have purchased many items from there with a very competitive price, such as leather Jackets and shoes etc. The high speed train was very nice and we enjoyed our trip from Venice to Florence.
Guide and driver was awesome, very accommodating and very professional.
Florence was breathtaking!! Great experience. I appreciated the freedom we had being on our own but the comfort in knowing someone made all the arrangments for transportation and this included the hop on hop off in florence. Saved us money - priced it out on my own would have cost us at least 20+ Euros more per person. This is probably the 10th tour we have booked throu Viator and I recommend it to all my friends... best deals for the money and they always deliver service and quality.
The ticket process is very easy. There was someone at the train terminal to hand us our tickets and give us information on the train process.
Met promptly by a girl with our tickets, everything very smooth and easy. I'm sure you could just buy tickets at the station but this takes all the hassle out of it and ensures you have a seat. Trains are lovely with free wi-fi and I defintely recommend taking a day out to do this as Florence is stunning.
Train was great, well organised. Hop on hop off tour was a complete mystery with times, routes and buses not running to schedule.Thankfully we could walk!
This was great and easy. Recommend for the no hassle factor. We saw a lot of Florence in a short time.
Great! Organized and efficient. Perfect if you like an independent tour at your own pace.
The hop on hop off bus was definitely worth doing. I would recommend pre-purchasing entrance admission to any galleries you want to visit though. The line at the Uffizi can e very long if you do not have advance tickets. Also if you wish to visit the Duomo it is not on the tour route. Ask the tour operator which stop id closest if you want to get there as I don't believe the route map provided is to scale.
