Traveling by train or by private car on a Florence day trip from Rome makes it easy for you to see the highlights of one of Italy’s most popular and fascinating destinations. Through an immersive Florence tour, an expert local guide will make you discover the rich cultural and artistic heritage of the Cradle of the Renaissance.

  • Admire the Basilica of Santa Croce in the square of the same name, one of the largest Franciscan churches and one of the greatest achievements of Gothic in Italy. It represents the meeting place of the greatest artists, theologians, religious, writers, humanists and politicians, who determined, in good times and bad, the identity of the late medieval and Renaissance city.
