A morning guided tour and free time in the afternoon to explore Florence at your own pace make this day trip to Florence from Rome by high-speed rail an ideal solution for independent travellers.


  • Experience Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance
  • Travel comfortably and sustainably – High-speed train cuts travel time to Florence in half!

Cut travel time to Florence in half when traveling by high-speed train and make the most of an unforgettable day exploring the cradle of the Renaissance and home to artistic geniuses such as Michelangelo, Dante, da Vinci, Machiavelli, and Galileo.

As you step off the train your local expert guide will greet you and embark on a walking tour to unveil the great beauty of Florence and its immensely rich history. Hear the true stories about Medici ambitions, greed, and power and about those who dared to conspire against them as you stroll through the charming streets. Stroll past famous landmarks like the Florence Duomo, Brunelleschi’s magnificent Dome, and the Baptistry of St. John, adorned with its famous “Gates of Paradise”. Next you’ll take in Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of Florence where an exact replica of Michelangelo’s world-renowned statue of David stands. Heading along towards the River Arno, we’ll stroll past the Uffizi Museum and view the famous Vasari Corridor, a 1km-long overpass designed to connect the elaborate Medici residence with the Uffizi. After a photo-op for some stunning pictures of the famous Ponte Vecchio, our walking tour of Florence comes to a conclusion.

Enjoy 5.5 hours of free time – have a leisurely lunch and then wander around magnificent Florence on your own before making your way to the station for your return journey to Rome. If available, book a visit to see Michelangelo’s most prized sculpture: the David located in the Accademia Museum.
