Florence Day Tour

Your day starts by meeting our representative at Termini Train Station bright and early (6.45am) ready for the 7.15am Eurostar train to Florence - no long bus journey or traffic. We can arrange a pick up from your hotel for the supplementary charge of 25Euro plus transportation costs depending on group size. Please send us an email after you have booked if you require a hotel pick up.

 

A representative from our office in the city centre will meet you off the train upon your arrival at Florence Station at 8.51 am, and will be available at all times to help with your trip in any way. You will be taken for a gentle stroll through the medieval city centre passing the famous Ponte Vecchio, before meeting your guide for the day at our city centre office.

 

At 11.00pm you will be introduced to one of the most important art galleries in the world. The Uffizi holds the largest collection of renaissance masterpieces around, and your two-hour tour of the gallery will showcase the Renaissance in all its beauty.

 

Afterwards, during your lunch break, you are free to choose a dining place that suits your budget and desires, as lunch is not included in the tour price, however our knowledgeable guides will be ready to offer you great advise on where to dine.

 

The walking tour of the city includes the medieval Ponte Vecchio, or “Old Bridge”, noted for it's shops and jewellers. You will visit Piazza della Signoria, the famous L-shaped square in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, and then visit Il Porcellino, the local Florentine bronze fountain of a boar. You will also see Palazzo Strozzi, and then the world-famous Duomo where your tour will jump the queue with its reserved access.

 

For those still hungry for unique experiences, for a supplement of 35 Euro per person, you can also enjoy the famous statue of David housed in the Accademia, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, which will be a one hour and 20 minutes extension to the tour.

 

You will then have some free time for some shopping, or relaxing, before our office representative will help you get back to Florence Train Station for the 6.08pm train that brings you back into Rome City Centre at 7.40pm.
