We took this excursion while staying in Lazise and the coach transfer was quite long with early start and late return due to drivers restricted driving hours. Our guide Fabio Rapana was excellent and gave us a locals insight into Italian life and the areas we were passing through. He was fluent in both English and German and ensured both nationalities were equally informed. The walking tour of Florence was very good taking in all the main sites but due to large queues we did not have time to go inside either cathedral or the museum. Fab it's recommendation of using the day trip as a "taster" to plan another visit was well advised. Booking of an early entrance to both midweek seems the best option to avoid the crowds of day trippers. The city itself is very walkable and felt safe. Less commercialised than Milan but still with a good range of shops. We did not eat with the group and found the prices of both food and drink in the local cafes very reasonable being only slightly dearer than our resort. Watch for "cover charges" for sitting down at a table which can be avoided if you wish by standing at the bar as the locals do. The smaller cafes and bars do not charge anything and with 35 degree heat we were glad of a cool seat inside. We liked Florence and will probably have a city break there to visit attractions we did not get to see.

Florence is not a biggest city in Italy but this city has a charm and charisma. The Golden Bridge in Florence is very beautiful and comfortable place to tourists and domestic population.
