Full description
Depart Rome and drive through the Italian countryside towards the rolling hills of Tuscany. Upon arrival in Florence, journey through the "Cradle of the Renaissance" starting at Piazzale Michelangelo, where you can take in an amazing panorama of the entire city. Then, go to the covered Ponte Vecchio across the River Arno to see the city from a different perspective. Stroll the enchanting streets to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and look at its stunning dome by Brunelleschi. Admire the marble monuments of the Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower. Next, enter Piazza della Signoria to get a well-rounded view of the political and artistic heritage of the city. The L-shaped square is home to the fortress-like Palazzo Vecchio and a copy of Michelangelo's David along with the gallery of statues in the adjacent Loggia dei Lanzi. After lunch (not included), take a walk through the outdoor market of San Lorenzo and find high quality leather jackets and other clothes at affordable prices. Depart Florence at around 2:30 PM and head to Pisa for a guided tour of the spectacular Piazza dei Miracoli. See the legendary Leaning Tower of Pisa and the marble façades of the Baptistery and Duomo. Leave Pisa at approximately 5:00 PM for the journey back to Rome.

This is not a guided tour. It is transportation only. You get picked up in a mini van. Our driver, Stefano, is a really nice guy! You can definitely do this trip by train and spend some more time in the destinations but the convenience of having a direct ride to and from on such a hot day was worth it.

This is NOT a tour in the traditional sense and that was not clear to our party nor the others on this experience. Please make additional plans (tours) for once you arrive. Our driver, albeit incredibly nice and respectful, spoke very little English (even though I only book English tours) and so we struggled significantly with communicating. He dropped us off and said see you in 3 hours. I’m very organized and like structure so I thought this was more structured and felt lost trying to figure out how to maximize my time in Florence. Because of that we lost an hour and really didn’t see much in Florence because we were unprepared. Beyond that, the drive was smooth and on time and pick up at hotel was GREAT!

To begin with, it's not a guided tour. The driver leaves you at the city center in Florence and then you have 3 hours to explore. Luckily we had internet and we went and see around the city. Almost everything was within walking distance. You get an hour in Pisa which is more than enough. We enjoyed our time equally in Florence and Pisa.
