Start with a guided tour of the incredible Accademia Gallery, seeing Michelangelo’s ‘David’ and Botticelli’s ‘Madonna and Child,’ and then explore the city on a comprehensive walking tour.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Led by a local guide
  • All entrance fees included
  • Lunch included
Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel, or alternatively, hop aboard your coach in the center of town, near Rome Termini Station. Leave Rome and travel north to the picture-perfect region of Tuscany, passing through the green valley surrounding Tevere River and hills blanketed with olive groves and vineyards. Your destination of the day is beautiful Florence – the region’s equally charming capital.

First stop in the city is the world-famous Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia ), home to Michelangelo’s original David sculpture, which, of course, you will see on your tour! Head inside to see the Accademia’s highlights with your expert guide, learning about Michelangelo’s unfinished Quattro Prigioni – a sculpture of prisoners trying to free themselves from the marble in which they are carved – and see Botticelli’s Madonna and Child among other noteworthy works.

Leave the museum and set off on your walking tour to see top city attractions like Florence Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore). Admire the cathedral’s distinctive orange dome, designed by Renaissance supremo Fillipo Brunelleschi, and then admire Giotto’s Bell Tower – another Renaissance masterpiece.

Stop near Piazza della Signoria to enjoy lunch in a typical Florentine restaurant, and then continue your walking tour to the Basilica of Santa Croce to see where Michelangelo is buried. Finally, visit one of Florence’s famous leather-making schools, where you’ll also learn about other ancient Tuscan crafts such as gold metal work and mosaic making.

Return to your coach with your guide and return to Rome, finishing your tour back at your hotel. Alternatively, you can finish your tour with a drop off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

The tour was great in every way.

Reviewed by: David S, June 2016

The tour started with pickup right at our rental apartment in Rome. We were met by our guide and driver at 6:45 as instructed. We picked up one other couple and were then on our way. The trip to Pompeii was about an hour and a half. We were then setup with a professional tour guide whom walked us around Pompeii and spoke to us in English about the city, the culture, my Vessuvious, and other important hi lights. From there we drove down to the Amalfi coast, first stopping in Positana We stopped in three or four coastal towns for shopping, sightseeing, and lunch. The driver and guide were very accommodating to our wants and needs and allowed us to tailor our stops as we so chose. We were then driven home and dropped off directly at our apartment. This is a great tour for history buffs or folks looking to see the beautiful southern coast of Italy. It is well worth a day out of your vacation
