Return Details

Roma Termini, Piazza dei Cinquecento, 1, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
Your day trip from Rome to Florence starts at Termini Station, where you’ll board the high-speed train for the 1.5-hour trip north to Florence, in the region of Tuscany. Admire the Italian countryside from the window of your standard-class carriage along the way.

Upon arrival, enjoy walking tour of Florence to see big-name sights, beginning at the Duomo and continuing past the Ponte Vecchio, Via dei Cerretani, Piazza della Repubblica, and Piazza della Signoria, learning about the city's history as you go. You'll also enjoy a skip-the-line entry to the Uffizi Gallery to see Renaissance masterpieces including Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation.

Afterward, enjoy an included lunch in a traditional restaurant, followed by some free time to continue exploring Florence.

A few tips for your free time: check out the lovely views and landscapes in Piazzale Michelangelo and the Boboli Gardens, or if you’re into art, don't miss the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s David sculpture. And a walk through the city center isn’t complete without a stop at the Florence Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori) to climb up Brunelleschi’s Dome.

When your time in the city ends, meet up with the group at Piazza del Duomo for the return train ride to Rome Termini Station, where your day trip concludes.

Florence is beautifuland filled with art and history. The tour pointed our the hot spots. The highlights of the museum was great. We didn't get to spend much time in any one place. We just tried time see as much as possible in the short amount of time we had. We loan to return and stay a few days.

Florence day trip

We had a wonderful day visiting. Our tour guide could have been a bit more professional, it's okay to be relaxed with clients, however I felt she was on a quest for personal time while not with us. Would have been nice to have her give us more ins and outs of the region we were in.

Rome to florence by high speed train

Museum waste of time, definitely not worth the 24 euros. Having 2 languages to translate slowed down the tour. Should have taken us to see David and not the museum. Our main tour guide was great and the lunch was good. The leather factory was way too e expensive.

FLORENCE AUGUST TRIP

Pickup was on time. The high-speed train was an hour late both coming and going. Florence was beautiful! The lunch was just horrible! Poor service and the food was poor quality and the brisket looked like dog food and tasted the same. The tour guide was unorganized and if it was not for a passenger they would have left us in the bathroom. We payed extra to see David. It was worth it! It is better to skip the lunch and pay your own lunch.

The trip from Rome to Florence was great, we were handled well by our tour guide then handed off nicely to our guide while in Florence. It was informative and fun! Enjoyed lunch and the free time at the end of the day to do a little shopping.

Problems with Transportation

Trip would have been excellent if transportation to and from train station would have been as advertised We had to get to the train station by ourselves after we were told that the tour company would pick us up at our hotel. Then when we got to the train station after a long day in Florence our tour guide told us that we would be able to get a cab easily and left us on our own. We had a two hour wait at least if we wanted to get a cab so my wife myself and our handicap daughter had to walk to our hotel exhausted and unfamiliar with the route to our hotel We arrived at our hotel at 11:00 PM.We can not recommend Viator after this situation.

Florence really deserves more than one day. Our tour guides were excellent with a lot of side information. We had a delicious lunch and plenty of free time. It's just so much to see.

Horrible Customer Service

Worst tour experience ever encountered. We wanted to book the tour with hotel pick-up but there was no option to select for hotel pick-up in the Viator website. When we contacted the company via email to arrange pick-up, they refused and suggested we cancel the booking. WE SHOULD HAVE and this turned out to be a bad mistake. The tour guide assigned to lead the group from Rome to Florence was totally inexperienced. Did not give proper instructions. Just walked by herself ahead of the group with no flag or signs for us to follow. In the crowded train stations and in Florence, people in the back could not see her, and have no clue where she was going. She don't even turn around to check if her group is following behind her or if anyone is lagging behind. Lunch was more than an hour late because of extremely POOR booking arrangement. She blamed it on hotel when she could have better coordinated. STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO AVOID VIATOR AT ALL COST. Irresponsible company. We went with another tour agency on a Vatican City tour the next day, and it was the best experience of our trip.

If you can only do one day trip in...

If you can only do one day trip in Italy, make it this one! Francesca, our guide, was fantastic to our whole family. Her knowledge and kind demeanor was so welcome. The high speed train from Rome is definitely the way to go. Great way to see the countryside, and got us to Florence so much quicker so we could enjoy our day there. The Uffizi was specatcular and we really enjoyed the trip to the leather shop and an explanation of how they make their leather goods. Lunch was delicious and we had adequate time to do just about everything on our short list. We could honestly spend a lifetime in Florence...but if you only have a day book this trip.
