You will be in front of a unique panorama: Piazza dei Miracoli with its marble architecture and neat grass lawns. If the queue allows it, your guide will accompany you on your visit to the precious interiors of the Cathedral, an unchallenged masterpiece of Romanesque art. Once outside you can admire the Baptistery, the Monumental Graveyard and, finally, the world famous Leaning Tower, discovering all of its secrets.

Before we head back to Florence you will have free time for an ice cream and for the inevitable photo memories. Please note that the Cathedral of Pisa is now free and in the most crowded days, it might not be possible to visit its interior due to long queues.

Florence is an art and culture lover's paradise. However this charming Tuscan city offers so much more. You can pass an entire holiday in Florence without entering a museum and still go home fulfilled. The ochre or terracotta hue that the streets and rooves take when seen from the various panoramic view points above the city in the morning or evening light are unique. From our open top buses you will be a privileged observer of the narrow cobbled viuzze, tiny medieval streets, the enchanting artisan shops and the elegant boutiques and trendy individual shops. Our new bus route will bring you to Fiesole the Etruscan hill town just a few kilometres out of Florence which no trip to the city would be complete without visiting. As well as the stunning panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside the opportunity for cultural visits are well worth the trip. The Roman amphitheatre, the Cathedral, the Civic museum, to name just a few and of course the splendid paths and trails which lend themselves so well for trekking or strolling. This is an ideal itinerary for relaxing after the hustle and bustle of the city. Sit back and let your driver slowly take you along the winding country roads. Sunset is especially magical and quite romantic!
