We have done a lot of these in other cities and this is not the best. Good way to see outskirts of city. Audio is limited...mostly music. When the information does come on it is often out of time with when you drive by the site. Late to start and early (14.30) is hardly 24hrs. Blue line is every hour... More

The start point of these tours is just down from the main railway station (look for a Bata shop and the bus stops are virtually outside). The company run two routes – the Blue Route (Line A) and the Red Route (Line B). Line A takes an hour and the buses go every hour (half hourly at weekends), while the... More

Caught bus opposite train station. Bought tickets from bus company, excellent value for money. Excellent way of getting to know Florence before exploring further on foot. Guide helpful and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend for those who have never been to Florence before.

We bought tickets from a kiosk on the street for €23 each. Got to say well worth the money! Easy way to get around Florence and many sights can be seen. Would definitely recommend.

Florence is a small city and at first we thought we could explore it all without going on this tour. However it turned out to be the most convenient way for us. With the map provided, we could do a lot more than trying to figure things out ourselves specially when travelling with kids. We did the full round then... More

This is probably the worst Hop On Hop Off tour I've been on. I waited at one of the stops for 2 hours with no success. I had to walk to another stop about 15 minutes away before I was able to hop on. One of the lines isn't even a double decker, so it's awkward when you're supposed to... More

Staff in the bus is worst. Non courteous. I was just standing about ten feet away from the pole at stop and waved at bus to stop but driver despite noticing me didn't stop. The helpers on buses r also rude .

Like other reviewers we now use the Sightseeing bus option whenever we get to a new city as they always provide a great way to cover all the main points of the city and allows you the time to explore the parts that are most interesting to you, and as always the trip was well planned , prompt and very...

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
