Full Description

Visit Florence in this one day trip from Rome. Take a high speed train and reach the renaissance city of Florence. Enjoy a guided tour of the Accademia Gallery and marvel at the masterpieces by Michelangelo and others. After a lunch break you’ll head out on a guided walking tour of Florence.

Depart early in the morning from Rome - Stazione Termini. Take the high speed train and in just 1h 30 minutes you’ll reach Florence. Upon arrival reach the center and meet our local guide that will lead you to discover the famous Accademia where with our knowledgeable guide you will learn why the David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time. How did the genius of Michelangelo meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a being and fixing it forever in time in the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks? You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist. After the guided tour you will have some free time to wander around on your own and some free time to have lunch (not included). The second part of the tour starts after a lunch break (not included) with a walking tour in which you will enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who want to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history, from the city’s Roman origins to a 15th century palace, including the Ponte Vecchio, the famous Uffizi courtyard, and the wonders of the architecture of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery golden ‘Gates of Paradise’. Then, in late afternoon take the high speed train and enjoy a relaxing ride before arriving back to Rome where the tour will end

    I would have given this tour a five star but the meeting point that it gives is not the actual meeting point the address to the academic guided tour is not included nor the directions back to the train. Other than that our guide was very knowledgeable about the area she answered all questions. Enough time was given for use to get lost in the area and find our way back to the train station.
