One Day Group Tour of Florence by High Speed Train

5 / 5 total 48 reviews
Duration: 1 days
Tour ID: 3426
Overview

Enjoy a one-day round-trip excursion from Rome to the so-called Cradle of the Renaissance: Florence. The high-speed train you will catch from the Capital will grant you a fast and relaxing journey. You will not even realise having travelled from region to region.

Touched by the Arno and small like a gem set in the heart of the Italian peninsula, Florence is romantic, charismatic and full of history.

The city's urban fabric has changed very little since the Renaissance. Its streets and alleys tell a thousand stories, some true, some legendary. Food and wine are entire to indulge in too during a stay here because they are of world-class quality. From the vineyards and the wine-rich hills surrounding Florence come some of the most famous and appreciable wines on the Globe.

Florence is also known worldwide for its architecture and art. Despite its modest size, there are plenty of sights of interest and things to do. Galleria degli Uffizi is home to the world's most complete collection of Renaissance art. Palazzo Vecchio is a fortress palace now the seat of the mayor's office. Brunelleschi designed Palazzo Pitti, bought by the Medici and then donated to the State by the Savoys. Today it hosts fascinating museums.

The most iconic monument is without a doubt the Duomo characterized by a neo-Gothic facade and a dome that uniquely stands out in the cityscape. The Galleria dell'Accademia houses Michelangelo's David and therefore is worth visiting. Corridoio Vasariano is a 1 km long arched passageway that connects Palazzo Vecchio with Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti.

The walking tour included in this guided activity is organised so that you will be sure to cover the highlights of the city during a relaxing yet comprehensive visit led by a qualified guide. It will start from the breathtaking Duomo and will take you to the magic Ponte Vecchio going past via dei Cerretani, Piazza Della Repubblica and Piazza Della Signoria. By 11:15 you will access the Uffizi Gallery.

After two hours spent unveiling the museum's beauties, some time will be dedicated to admire Piazza della Signoria; after that, you will head to a typical local restaurant for a well-deserved delicious lunch included in the rate. Before meeting your guide again at Santa Maria Novella Station by 6:30 pm to catch the train that will take you back to Rome, you will have the whole afternoon to continue the visit on your own or conveniently go shopping for souvenirs.

I had an extra day in Italy and opted for a day trip to Florence. I booked with privatetour.com and they were very professional and punctual. I was picked up at my hotel and taken to their main office and from there the group boarded the high-speed train to Florence. I was a solo traveller while the others were couples from Spain, Brazil and Australia. There was one other solo traveller form Lithuania. As we were a Spanish and English speaking group, our guide translated throughout the entire trip.

This was a great tour! Very organized from the early pick up at our hotel until we arrived back to the Terminal. Florence was wonderful. We left the tour during the museum portion and met back up with them at lunch. Lunch was good - there were about 50 of us so it was quite a large group. Lunch was good - consisted of pasta and roast beef. The high-speed train was fun! The two tour guides were very informative and managed to keep everyone together and informed!

A good way to see Florence in a day. The train ride was fast, but trains are configured with seats facing each other, so not a lot of leg room and be prepared to look at your seatmates the whole time. Tour guides were informative and friendly. Got to see sights we hadn't in past. Included a very nice lunch and had plenty of time on our own. Would recommend this tour if staying in Rome and want to include a short trip to Florence.

This trip was awesome - a great way to see Florence in a day. The guides were excellent, there were 3 or 4 of them on the train ride with us, they were attentive and helpful. we did the upgraded tour of Florence with lunch - that was well worth it! We saw all the key points of Florence, had a wonderful lunch and had 2 hours of free time to shop and do what we want. Long day, tiring, but well worth it!

It was a great one-day tour. Our tour guide in Florence knew every detail of the area and all its history. He took us around town briefly pointing out significant details here and there. His tour of the Uffizi gallery was a masterpiece of pacing, hitting all the right highlights to provide exposure to the most representative and important art. We felt enlightened while having great fun, because all the details were taken care of. And we were not exhausted at the end of the long day. I think this is because the pacing was so masterful. We saw so much without feeling rushed to pushed to see it all. The train is the way to go, and this tour does it right.

Another unforgettable trip with privatetour.com.Our guide was friendly/informative and looked after us so well. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'high speed' train journey to Florence. A lovely 'touch' was the Italian breakfast when we arrived in Florence. We had a lot of free time in which to explore the beautiful city of Florence. One of the many high-lights of our 'Day in Florence' was our guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery - our guide's knowledge of the artworks was exceptional.
