Add To Plan

Enjoy a 2 hour air-conditioned coach ride to Florence, and then explore this fascinating city on your own, at your own pace. Before being picked up for the return trip, you will have approximately six hours to discover many of Florence's most revered treasures. With complete freedom to travel wherever you please, and a detailed map to facilitate your journey, you can easily concentrate on the areas that interest you the most. If you have already been to the famed Duomo, for instance, you might wander through the Uffizi, one of the world's great art galleries (the museum does require advance reservations). Another collection of amazing art is on display in the seven museums within the grand Palazzo Pitti, once owned by the Medici family. Don't miss the Boboli Gardens behind the palace, especially its popular Grotta del Buontalenti near the entrance.

Please note: Oceania recommends the Discovery Walks program as a great supplement to this tour. The historic center of Florence is pedestrian area. Please remember that suitable attire is required if planning to make visits to churches or the cathedral in Florence. On Mondays, most of the shops in Florence are closed between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm, as well as all the main museums. Comfortable shoes are highly recommended. No guided tour applies, only transportation to Florence. An official escort will be on the coach and will provide some information about Florence and places to visit. Maps are available on the coach. There is approximately 15-20 minute walk from the parking area to the meeting point.
