Your breathtaking stay in Florence officially begins at the famous here, an L shaped square located right in the heart of Florence known for notable statues which give a feel of being in an open air museum.
Once you get acquainted with your LivItaly tour guide, you will make your way into one of the most important museums in all of Italy – the Uffizi Gallery which houses 45 rooms of artwork, spanning 8,0000 square meters of space. See master works by some of the greatest Renaissance artists such as Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Michelangelo and countless more great artists who have left an ever lasting influence on the art world to date. Learn about the political and social power of the Medici family who once owned this patrimony of art as their very own private collection, which later opened to the public as one of the first public museums of a private collection in 1765. This is an absolute must see museum for any art lover as it holds some of the world’s treasures, making it one of the most popular museums in the world with over 2 million visitors per year.
Your tour guide will stop you off at one of the local restaurants of Florence so you can have a quick bite to eat before you head off to some of the more major museum stops. Florence is internationally known for its cuisine thanks to the splendid geographical abundance the Tuscan area supplies. Try some a ffettati misti (sliced cured meats) with cheese, a dish of pasta or if you are craving something a bit more substantial – the famous bisteca alla Fiorentina (T-bone steak) all of which are famous for the region. And of course you cannot have a Tuscan lunch without a glass of Chianti or Brunello to accompany your meal.
WALKING TOUR WITH MICHELANGELO’S DAVID & DUOMO
Once you have feasted on some of Florence’s finest fare, you will meet your tour guide again for the next portion of your Full Day Tour
where you will get to see one of the world’s most renowned pieces of sculpture by one of the greatest artists in history. Your afternoon will begin with a walk around the beautiful art city of Florence so you can get an idea of the size and scope of the beautiful
Gothic, Romanesque and Renaissance architecture which has intrigued tourists for centuries, making Florence one of the first official tourist cities in Europe.
Admire the Ponte Vecchio Bridge, the oldest bridge in Florence which overlooks the Arno River and the only bridge which survived Nazi bombings during WWII. The colorful cityscape it offers the city only adds to its innate charm. You will also get to see Fillipo
Brunelleschi’s Dome from the outside – the largest duomo in Italy and learn how the architect’s rival Lorenzo Ghiberti was seething when he lost the bid to complete the dome himself. Marvel at the dome that perfectly frames Florence and all the many pictures taken of this picturesque city. Learn about the famous Baptistry bronze doors and the history and legends they have left as behind.
Your final stop will be one worth having waited for – a trip inside the
Galleria dell’Accademia which houses the magnificent 17-foot marble sculpture of David by Michelangelo. Sculpted between 1501 and 1504, when Michelangelo was only 29 years old, the David statue has transcended both time and culture to become one of the world’s most recognized and admired pieces of art. It was originally created to embody the David from the Bible’s first book of Samuel, but today, anyone and everyone appreciates the miraculous ode to the human body, a craft that Michelangelo was known for.
Now that your day in Florence has come to an end, you will be accompanied back to the train station where you will hop back into premium class and make your way back to Rome.

ABOUT OUR 6 PEOPLE SMALL GROUP POLICY
When you book a LivItaly Small Group Tour, you are guaranteed one tour guide per group of 6 people. Please bear in mind though that in order to accommodate traveling families and friends, we do on rare occasion make the exception of adding an additional one to two guests in order not to split groups who are traveling together. On that same note, you may find yourself on tour with less than six people. As we accept bookings in multiples of six, math doesn’t always work in our favor to help accommodate individual travelers and their families when on the same tour, so we hope you understand and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
PLEASE NOTE: *Once train tickets are purchased, they are non-refundable and do not fall within the refund criteria of our cancellation policy. If you choose to change the time of your return ticket, you must contact our customer service team at least 2 hours before the end of the tour. This cost will be at your own expense.
*We cannot guarantee that all travelers will sit together, especially for last minute bookings.
