Our flagship all-inclusive day trip to Florence from Rome by high-speed rail allows you to explore Florence with a local guide followed by wine tasting and lunch at a Boutique Tuscan winery. Cap off your adventure with a visit to the medieval town of San Gimignano!


  • Visit the magical city of Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance
  • Travel comfortably and sustainably – High-speed train cuts travel time to Florence in half!
  • Wine tasting and light lunch in a prized local winery
  • Free time to explore the unforgettable medieval town of San Gimignano


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.

After the Florence walking tour, sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery while cruising through the perfectly manicured hills of Tuscany and arrive at an independent winery overlooking the medieval towers of San Gimignano. See how age-old winemaking traditions have been incorporated into the modern production of today’s highly prized wines. You’ll even learn a bit of wine “lingo” such as what the initials DOCG mean and what classifies a wine as “Super-Tuscan” and learn the fascinating history of this family-run winery during an intimate tasting experience. Each wine will be paired with local cured meats, cheeses, breads, and of course extra virgin olive oil produced on the grounds. The wine and food pairing will conclude with a first course.

Last but not least on this Tuscan getaway is a visit to the enchanting town of San Gimignano. Your guide will allow you free time to admire the 14 remaining medieval towers, quintessential Tuscan cobblestone side streets, artisanal shops and gelaterias.  From San Gimignano you’ll make your way back to the Florence train station in time to depart for Rome!
