Day Trip From Rome To Florence Tour Description
No vacation to Italy would really be complete without visiting Florence at least once, and given that it is only 1.5 hours away by fast train, our day trip tour is the perfect way to see the best of the city even if your accommodation is in Rome.
Florence has so much to offer: Art, history, architecture, and culture. We will take care of everything, train tickets, entrance tickets into the museums, and a local licensed guide – all you need to do is enjoy the day!
During this day you will explore the following sites:
The Historical Center of Florence:
Arriving at the Piazza del Duomo and laying eyes on the spectacular architecture of the Duomo, the bell tower, and the Baptistery will be a memory you cherish for a lifetime. After that, we will take you on a stroll over the Arno river, via the Ponte Vecchio bridge which used to be more like a market for fresh food and especially meat but is now transferred into a jewelry hotspot.
Orsanmichele Church & Porcellino Pig:
Take a tour of the stunningly beautiful, yet lesser-known Orsanmichele Church with your private guide before visiting the famous Porcellino Pig, a bronze statue of a boar with origins dating back to the 1600s. Your guide will make sure that you don’t forgo the opportunity to take part in the local ritual involving touching the hog’s snout to bring some good luck!
The highlight of the Accademia is without a doubt THE masterpiece of Michelangelo; the statue of David. First, however, your private guide will explain to you and more importantly be able to show you how Michelangelo prepared for this amazing project, by showing you his unfinished marble statues.
The Uffizi Gallery is located next to the Arno river and while you are browsing through it don’t forget to look outside the windows from time to time for some amazing views! Inside the Gallery, you will be able to admire many artworks, most of them gifted to the city by the famous Medici family. Your guide will point out the sometimes very well-hidden treasures inside the paintings done by Botticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and many more.
Day Trip From Rome To Florence Itinerary Details:
This tour will last the entire day, but the time spent with your private guide is about 7 hours. The guide will welcome you at the Santa Maria Novella station in Florence.
