Choose our A day in Florence from Rome tour and we will organize for you a fantastic trip to the amazing city of Florence. One of our licensed English-speaking drivers will pick you up at your hotel in Rome with a VIP car or minivan and you will drive north to reach the enchanting region of Tuscany.
Once arrived in Florence the driver will escort you to a professional, English-speaking guide who will accompany you through the treasures of Florence for 3 hours. Thanks to our pre-booked tickets you will head inside the Academy Gallery skipping the line and admire its incredible treasures and works of art, such as the world-famous statue of David by Michelangelo. Once you exit from the Gallery the guide will walk with you to the Duomo of Florence, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower, with its amazing bell tower and the adjacent baptistery. You’ll also explore the Duomo from the inside, admiring the amazing dome painted by Brunelleschi and the stunning marble work on the cathedral floor, while your guide will be able to explain and reply to your questions.
From the religious heart of Florence you will move to the place that represented the political centre, Signoria Square. Palazzo Vecchio, the other landmark of Florence, stands on one side of the square, next to an exact replica of the David by Michelangelo, once housed inside the building. The last part of the walking tour will take you to the Straw Market, where you will admire a popular pig statue. It is believed that stroking the statue’s nose will bring good luck, in fact the pig’s nose is so shiny: everybody touches it!
Finally, you will reach the picturesque Old Bridge, the perfect place to take a quick snap to remember your day trip of Florence forever!
After three hours you will say goodbye to the guide, but you will still have some free time to explore Florence before you hop into your car/minivan and head back to Rome.
