Add To Plan

Your day commences with a one-and-a-half-hour journey by air-conditioned motor coach through the lovely Tuscan countryside. On arrival in Florence, visit Piazzale Michelangelo, a panoramic viewpoint that provides an excellent city view. Then, proceed through Florence passing Piazza della Signoria, a unique outdoor sculpture gallery, as well as a 14th-century bridge over the Arno River.

Upon arrival at the Uffizi Gallery, enjoy your approximate two-hour guided exploration of the world's finest collections of work by classic Florentine and Tuscan painters. The collection was born from the immense wealth of the Medici Family, who commissioned work from numerous Florentine masters. Here, you will admire the original pieces by artists such as Leonardo Di Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, as well as the famed Birth of Venus painting by Botticelli.

After your enlightening visit, proceed by foot to a local restaurant and enjoy a Florentine luncheon.

After lunch, view the Duomo of St. Maria del Fiore, known for its arched roof. One of the world's largest unsupported structures, the roof became a symbol of the city's great power in the 13th century. You will also see the Giotto's Bell Tower, as well as the Baptistery.

After your exploration, enjoy independent time to browse the many shops in Florence or explore on your own. Then re-board your motor coach for the scenic drive back to the pier.

Please note: As this excursion involves substantial walking for approximately two-and-a-half hours, as well as stair climbing at the Uffizi Gallery, it is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. It is recommended that guests wear flat, comfortable shoes. It is also recommended that guests dress conservatively for the church visits. Ladies must cover their knees and shoulders, while gentlemen must wear pants. The order of sights visited may vary.
