Independent Florence Day Trip from Rome by High-Speed Train
How you spend your time in the city is up to you! Perhaps visit Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo’s David sculpture, or visit Florence Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori) to climb up Brunelleschi’s Dome. Relax in Boboli Gardens, stroll through bohemian Oltrarno or soak up the views from Piazzale Michelangelo. Entrance fees are at your own expense.
Your meeting point to return to Rome is Piazza del Duomo. Your host will show you the exact point to meet in the evening. At your arrival to the station, you will be transported to your city center hotel or the meeting point.
Alternatively, upgrade to include an 1-hour walking tour of Florence to see big-name sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Duomo (exterior), Porta Paradiso and learn about the city history. The upgrade option also includes a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the world-famous Uffizi Gallery with 1-hour guided tour. After the guided tour, use your free time to explore the art gallery independently, and see its Renaissance masterpieces including Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation. Lunch in a traditional restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce is also included in your upgrade. After lunch, enjoy approximately 2-hours of free time to continue exploring Florence.
Meet back up with your host at a prearranged time, and then travel from Florence Santa Maria Novella Railway Station to Rome by train. Your experience finishes at the original departure point.

Awesome tour!!!! Our guide was very knowledgeable. We did the independent tour as we wanted to go at our own pace as well as do things like climb the bell tower, see David, etc... It was cold and rainy all day in Florence, but still spectacular. No lines whatsoever - it was AWESOME. If you go in January, take rain boots. I just had tennis shoes on and i regretted it. My feet were soaked the entire time.

Another unforgettable trip with Viator! Our guide, Palmira, was friendly/informative and looked after as so well. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'high speed' train journey to Florence. A lovely 'touch' was the Italian breakfast when we arrived in Florence. We had a lot of free time in which to explore the beautiful city of Florence. One of the many high-lights of our 'Day in Florence' was our guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery - our guide's knowledge of the artworks was exceptional.
