We at Stefano Rome Tours are glad to introduce you to one of our other tours outside Rome; a tour of Florence, a marvellous city which was once home to the Renaissance and is today one of Italy’s most precious tourist destinations.
If you are visiting Rome for a few days, then why not get that little extra out of your holiday and come with us to see the beautiful city of Florence !? It is only nine hours from the time of picking you up to dropping you off, so you will be back by around 5.00pm and in time for a siesta, before dining out at your favourite Roman restaurant and/or enjoying the capital’s sights.
After you are picked up from your accommodation or our meeting point, we will make our way to the Tuscan capital via the picturesque region of Umbria. On reaching Florence, or Firenze as it is called in Italian, we will initially stop off at Michelangelo Square (Piazzale Michelangelo), which offers probably the best view of the city and the surrounding Tuscan hills. This enticing panorama will give you a sweet taster of the good things to come on the tour.
Now from here, we will continue to the old part of the city, which is mainly pedestrianised and where most of the well-known sights are located.
As noted below in the ‘Tour Highlights’, we will be visiting all the major attractions that make Florence such a mecca for discerning tourists, such as the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio.
Furthermore, we will see works from some of Italy’s finest artists and architects, including Brunelleschi, Caravaggio, Da Vinci, Giotto, Michelangelo, Tintoretto and Vasari.
Our Tour of Florence really is an excursion not to be missed, and we always recommend that you book in advance to ensure you have a reserved place.
Please remember there is a dress code on entering churches in Italy, so please make sure that your shoulders and knees are all covered.
Michelangelo Square :: Church of Santa Crone :: Academia/Michelangelo ‘David’ :: Uffizi Gallery :: Duomo :: Ponte Vecchio
