What to expect

If you are based in Rome for your holiday but don’t want to miss out on the beauty of Florence, this full day trip to Florence from Rome is the perfect choice for you! Travel by bus and enjoy commentaries from your tour leader from Rome, arrive in Florence where you will meet your local guide and make your way to the the Accademia Gallery for the first highlight of your guided tour.

Thanks to your skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery, you'll marvel at Michelangelo’s statues of the Slaves and his magnificent 17-foot marble masterpiece, the David.

You'll then walk towards the astounding Duomo Square where you can gaze at the Baptistry Doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo, and the Florence Cathedral which your guide will explain in detail from the outside. The Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the skyline of Florence. Your guide will explain you all about the building techniques Brunelleschi used to create this masterpiece.

The entrance to the Duomo is free and you can visit independently during your free time if you wish, as the guide provided you with a full explanation of its inside and outside features.

During the walking tour, you will learn about the fascinating history of Florence as you visit the heart of the Renaissance Civic and Political Center, famous for its ancient statues and glorious fountains, like the famous Piazza della Repubblica, once the Ancient Forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists and locals.

Rub the nose of the legendary boar, “il Porcellino” to ensure a return to Florence and visit Piazza della Repubblica, once the Ancient Forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists, and locals.

You'll then enjoy some time at leisure to discover the city at your own pace.

Your guide will be available to offer recommendation for restaurants for your 3 hours of free time. There will also be plenty of time for shopping in Florence’s fashionable boutiques and in the market stalls, famous for their handmade leather goods. Otherwise just take your time to wander and take in the beauty of the city.
