Spend a day in Florence on this independent day trip from Rome by high-speed train! After starting the experience with a hotel pickup, travel from Rome Tiburtina Station to Florence Santa Maria Novella Railway Station in roughly 1.5 hours. Then, explore the city independently to see the Florence attractions and sights that you want to see before returning to Rome. If you would like to learn about the city, upgrade to include a 1-hour walking tour, lunch and a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the impressive Uffizi Gallery — home to a wealth of Renaissance artwork.
Leave your Rome hotel by air-conditioned coach or meet your host at the meeting point to travel to Rome Tiburtina Station. Your host will board the high speed train to Florence with you for your morning departure. Sit back and relax in your comfortable, standard-class carriage for the duration of your 1.5-hour journey to Florence, Italy’s second city. Steeped in history and art, Florence embodies the romance of Italy and is home to many of the world’s greatest architectural treasures.

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.

The high speed train to Florence was wonderful, climbing Doma was unbelieveable, as with all of Roman and Italian history, you wonder how they did it!!!

Just a little confusing regarding were to meet our tour guild. Note there are sever other groups at the same drop off place. Just have to wait for your guide to come a get you. That was the only draw back. After we were on the bus we were on our way. The train ride was great and the area heading to Florence was fantastic and fast!!!. Florence was unbelievable.. My eyes could not take in all of the old history and churches on our way to the museum. We were met with another tour guild who gave us a brief description of the are and the Art museum we were to visit. Note the tickets were included in the package. First time, this is the way to go. We also visit a leather factory after lunch then back to the train station for Rome. Great Trip!!!
