(NB! this is a busy itinerary, if you split the route to only do some of the things then that is OK too.)

We assume you will arrive in Florence by plane or train, and your journey will start from there (Florence center), in the morning of the first day. If it is a weekend trip, this will be on a Saturday. If you are landing in other parts of Italy, you can take a high-speed train to Florence in the evening. However, remember that high-speed trains stop running around midnight, so you need to schedule your arrival accordingly. This is why we suggest starting your journey in the morning of the first day affter arrival (f. eks. friday). We also have to mention that this tour fits well with the 5 day itinerary.

Day 1 in Florence:

– Early morning, the first stop is the Dumo group. It includes the beautiful Baptistry doors and even a climb up to the cupola.
– The next stop should be the Piazza della Signoria, famous for its incredible sculptures on display.
– From there, head over to the Piazza del Vecchio, which features a town-hall style building.
– As you head down to the river, don’t forget to check out the Ponte Vecchio, a historic bridge with jewelry shops.
– After lunch, explore the Boboli Garden, which is a beautiful garden filled with sculptures and fountains.
– Be sure to stop by the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery with its collection of art that includes Botticelli’s famous “La Primavera” and “The Birth of Venus.”

Day 2:

– Start your day by visiting the Santa Croce, a beautiful and religious site containing the tombs of famous Renaissance artists and writers.
– Next stop should be the Ill Bargello, which is home to incredible sculptures and is one of the oldest buildings in Florence.
– Later in the afternoon, visit the Church of Santa Maria Novella, which is famous for its artwork and beautifully painted frescoes.
– To cap off your two-day trip, hop on the bus number 12 from the railway station(S.M.N) to see the San Miniato al Monte with its scenic views of Florence and a marble horoscope.
