What people are saying about Emilia-Romagna

In addition to the fact that you can get on and off as many times as you want, it is the best way to get to know Florence when you have little time. Excellent attention; the times too and we listened to the explanations in Spanish without problems. I would take it again

Excellent experience. The bus foes around the outskirts of Florence and exposes you to a magnificent view of the city with all the landmarks showing their image. During the trip it shows areas of interest to visit by walk.

I enjoyed this class. Paola met me right on schedule. We walked through several market areas and back to her home. She was kind, gracious and knowledgeable. Her English was great. This was a wonderful experience.

Making the complete tour helps to determine which places will have priority in your visit, since you can return to them without paying again.

Elisabetta was a very knowledgable and amenable guide
