Small-Group Tour: Florence and Pisa Day Trip from Rome
From US$181.97
Overview
Take a break from the bustle of Rome to visit the famous cities of Tuscany on a full-day tour to Florence and Pisa. In Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, admire artistic masterpieces like Michelangelo’s ‘David’ at the Accademia Gallery and walk beneath Brunelleschi’s famous dome. Don’t miss the stately marble treasures of Pisa’s Piazza dei Miracoli, including the iconic Leaning Tower. Travel through the picturesque Tuscan countryside in a comfortable minivan, and enjoy the personalized attention of a small-group tour.
What to Expect

Leave your central Rome hotel in a Small Group max 12 people (only 6 passenger per minivan), and relax on the journey north to Tuscany, a region known as the “cradle of the Renaissance.” Cross the green valley around the River Tiber to the slopes of the Apennines to reach your first stop of the day: Pisa.

Hop out of your minivan for a stroll around Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa’s monument-filled central square. Stand before the Leaning Tower of Pisa for photos and learn about the Baptistery and Pisa Duomo, both resplendent in the local white marble. 

Continue to Florence and enjoy free time for lunch at your own expense. Later, meet back up with your guide for a walking tour. Discover medieval streets and craftsmen’s workshops as you stroll with tales of the powerful Florentine Medici family ringing in your ears. Then, head inside the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo’s sculpture of ‘David’ alongside other influential Renaissance art by the likes of Da Vinci and Botticelli.

If time permits, visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore to swoon at Brunelleschi’s dome, check out the baptistery, and admire Giotto’s Bell Tower. Finish with a quick trip up to Piazzale Michelangelo where a stunning city vista awaits. Cast your gaze over the Ponte Vecchio, River Arno, and Florence Duomo, then return to your minibus for the journey back to Rome. Your day ends with a hotel drop-off.

There wasn’t a lot of time for shopping. We where the only ones in the van and it would have easily fit five.
