Full description
If you are based in Rome for your holiday but don’t want to miss out on the beauty of Florence, this full-day trip to Florence from Rome is the perfect choice for you. Travel in a comfortable bus to Florence, where you will meet your local guide and make your way to the the Accademia Gallery for the first highlight of your tour. Your skip-the-line access to the Accademia Gallery will provide you with the opportunity to jump the queue and marvel at Michelangelo’s statues of the "Slaves" and his magnificent 17 foot marble masterpiece, "David." Then, walk towards the astounding Florence Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, from where Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the skyline of Florence and never ceases to impress. Gaze at the Baptistry doors by Ghiberti, coined the “Gates of Paradise” by Michelangelo and observe the Duomo up close. During the walking tour, learn about the fascinating history of Florence as you visit the heart of the Renaissance civic and political center, famous for its ancient statues and glorious fountains. Rub the nose of the legendary boar, “il Porcellino” to ensure a return to Florence and visit Piazza della Repubblica, once the ancient forum, now a popular meeting place for famous writers, artists and locals. Then, enjoy some time at leisure to discover the city at your own pace. Your guide will be available to offer recommendation for restaurants, so you can try a delicious local meal in what is one of the world’s most renowned destinations for food and wine.

bad, very bad, the guide had a very good way of telling us the interesting facts of the tour, but it cost us a lot of work to understand the language, unfortunately, the tour does not give it in different languages, only English and that is why I put a terrible and disastrous Or zero.
