Visit Florence on day trip from Rome and see its top attractions with an expert guide at your side! Start with a guided tour of the incredible Accademia Gallery, seeing Michelangelo’s ‘David’ and Botticelli’s ‘Madonna and Child,’ and then explore the city on a comprehensive walking tour. Gaze in awe at Brunelleschi’s Dome at Florence Duomo and then finish your time in Florence with a visit to one of its legendary leather-making schools to see a time-honored craft in action.


  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Led by a local guide
  • All entrance fees included
  • Lunch included

Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel, or alternatively, hop aboard your coach in the center of town, near Rome Termini Station. Leave Rome and travel north to the picture-perfect region of Tuscany, passing through the green valley surrounding Tevere River and hills blanketed with olive groves and vineyards. Your destination of the day is beautiful Florence – the region’s equally charming capital.

First stop in the city is the world-famous Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia ), home to Michelangelo’s original David sculpture, which, of course, you will see on your tour! Head inside to see the Accademia’s highlights with your expert guide, learning about Michelangelo’s unfinished Quattro Prigioni – a sculpture of prisoners trying to free themselves from the marble in which they are carved – and see Botticelli’s Madonna and Child among other noteworthy works.

Leave the museum and set off on your walking tour to see top city attractions like Florence Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore). Admire the cathedral’s distinctive orange dome, designed by Renaissance supremo Fillipo Brunelleschi, and then admire Giotto’s Bell Tower – another Renaissance masterpiece.

Stop near Piazza della Signoria to enjoy lunch in a typical Florentine restaurant, and then continue your walking tour to the Basilica of Santa Croce to see where Michelangelo is buried. Finally, visit one of Florence’s famous leather-making schools, where you’ll also learn about other ancient Tuscan crafts such as gold metal work and mosaic making.

Return to your coach with your guide and return to Rome, finishing your tour back at your hotel. Alternatively, you can finish your tour with a drop off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

This bus trip was well worth it. The bus ride through the Italian countryside was awesome. The tour guide on the bus was pleasant and informative. The tour guide in Florence was knowledgeable and got us into the Academia Museum quick and there were not a lot of people. The walking tour of Florence was informative and pleasant. The lunch we had was perfect and was at a small family owned restaurant. We do have one issue we stay at ABNB's when we travel, we like having bigger accommodations with full kitchens. We paid for being picked up and being dropped off. When we tried to arrange this, the tour operator said they only went to hotels. We were under the impression that they picked up and dropped off at larger hotels. We had to find our way to the tour operators office in the morning. Then they dropped us off at a Metro station, 4 stopped from Cipro. instead of somewhere close to the flat we were renting. Our flat was close to the Vatican by the Metro station Cipro. 3 Other guests were dropped off prior to us being dropped off at the Metro. What annoyed us was the 3 people being dropped off were at small hotels located in more remote locations then where we were staying. When it came to the drop off we felt like second class guests. We paid for a service we did not receive and were treated as if it was a burden to drop us off.
