TOUR DESCRIPTION

Rome and Florence are two pages of the same book, two chapters of the same amazing story, which is the story of Italy. Our VIP Florence day trip will give you the chance to explore the most important city in Tuscany, and get back to Rome in time for dinner.

Duration: about 10 hours

One word connects those two cities: Renaissance. Renaissance means rebirth of the ancient Greek and Roman art, which was brought back to life and re-interpreted by the great masters of the 15th and 16th century: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello.

In Rome, you have some of the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance: the Sistine Chapel frescoes and paintings and the Pietà by Michelangelo, the Rooms of Raphael in Vatican City and many others; but it’s in Florence that the Renaissance was born. We designed this Florence Day Trip so that you can take a day off from the Eternal City, explore Florence in the most comfortable way possible, and then return to Rome on the same day.

Florence is not very close to Rome, that’s why we believe that the best way of reaching it is by using the fast-trains, which will allow you to get to Florence in only an hour and a half (a car ride would last at least three hours). In this way, you can spend more time exploring the city, and have more time for sightseeing, eating, shopping or tasting wine.

A tour assistant will pick you up at the hotel; then, you’ll take a cab to the train station and you’ll go to Florence together by fast train. Your tour assistant will be with you for the whole day: he will provide information about the beautiful landscapes you’ll see on your way to Florence, talk about Italian culture, food, wine. He’ll be there for the whole time to help you, and make sure you are enjoying every moment of your tour.

An expert local guide will wait for you in the Florence train station, where you’ll start your tour of the city center: you’ll visit Piazza della Signoria, the Duomo and the Battistero (from outside), Ponte Vecchio and many other famous sights. The highlight of your tour will be the Accademia, where you’ll admire Michelangelo’s David. We’ll provide skip-the-line tickets so you won’t have to wait in line. After the city walk you’ll have some free time (about 3 hours) that you can use to relax at a local restaurant, trying some of the most famous Tuscan dishes, do some shopping in the city center or continue the exploration of Florence with your tour assistant.

After your free time you will go back to the train station, and you’ll take the fast train back to Rome together with your tour assistant. Your tour will end at Termini train station, where your tour assistant will help you get a taxi to reach your hotel, or recommend a restaurant for dinner in case you’re still hungry.

Even if you have not planned to visit Florence, don’t miss the chance to discover this wonderful city with our VIP Florence day trip from Rome. In only one day you will enrich your vacation with an unforgettable experience, see some of the most beautiful artworks and landscapes in the world, and try some of the best dishes and wines.
