This was my first trip to Florence and GoAhead did its usual excellent job of orienting me immediately so I could strike out and explore the city in depth.
Florence: The City Experience
Beautiful Italia
10/01/19 by 2nd-time traveler Anne
We spent three nights in each city...Venice, Florence and Rome. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful group of people traveling with us on tour. This tour is a 'must see' to believe. The people, the food. the cities and towns were everything we had looked forward to seeing.

This was our second tour to Italy w/ GoAhead Tours. The hotels selected in Florence and Rapallo were a nice upgrade from previous trip! Location and quality of accomodations were excellent. Thank you again for a great experience.

Travel tips for Florence trips

When is the best time of year to visit Florence?

Travelers on tours to Florence in the spring and fall will be treated to warm, pleasant temperatures, making these seasons ideal for touring the city’s historic sites and markets. On summer Florence tours, travelers will find much warmer temps and plenty of bright sunshine—plus peak-season crowds. Winter months can be cold for Florence tours, but that’s when crowds thin out and the city lights up with festive Christmas markets and decorations.

What are some interesting things to do on a trip to Florence?

In addition to being filled with incredible art and architecture, Florence is the capital of Tuscany, the Italian region known for its world-class wine. Here are a few ways to enjoy it all on our tours of Florence:

· Try the wine. Take a bottle of locally produced red (you can’t go wrong with Brunello di Montalcino) to Piazza Michelangelo, and sip it while savoring a golden sunset as staffer Gustavo suggests in The Go Ahead Travel Guide to Florence.

· Enjoy the view. Climb the 400-plus stairs to the top of the city’s iconic cathedral (a.k.a. the Duomo) or Giotto’s Bell Tower.

· Pay your respects to trailblazing Italians. Visit the Basilica of Santa Croce, where Galileo, Michelangelo, and other famous Italians are buried.

What are the top attractions to see in Florence?

Here are some of the top attractions to see on our Florence tours:

· Ponte Vecchio. This iconic bridge stretches across the Arno River and is a popular spot for strolling, shopping, and taking pictures. Experts believe its construction dates back to the 10th century.

· Piazzale Michelangelo. Designed in 1869 by Florentine architect Giuseppe Poggi, this terrace affords some of the best views of Florence.

· Uffizi Gallery. This famous Florentine gallery’s collection includes sculptures and paintings by Botticelli, Caravaggio, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Corregio, and other masters.

· Accademia Gallery. This gallery is most famous for housing Michelangelo’s giant marble sculpture of David.

· The Duomo. Florence’s cathedral is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city, thanks in part to its rust-colored dome, which Filippo Brunelleschi designed.

What should I pack for a tour in Florence?

Here are some essentials that travelers on tours to Florence will want to add to their suitcase:

· Comfortable walking shoes. Florence is a pedestrian-friendly city, and Florence tours typically include lots of walking. Keep your feet happy in a pair of comfortable, sturdy walking shoes.

· Pants, long skirts, and long-sleeve shirts. When you visit Florence, you’re likely to enter churches, cathedrals, and other houses of worship. Pack a few items of clothing that cover your shoulders and knees.

· A small backpack or tote. Tours to Florence often include stops at churches and museums that only permit guests to carry in small handbags. Believe us when we say that you don’t want to be turned away from any of Florence’s spectacular sites.

What are some common dishes to order in Florence?

Although you’ll find plenty of pasta in Florence, the city has some of its own signature dishes, too. Here are a few to try on tours of Florence:

· Bistecca alla Fiorentina. Steak might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Italian food, but in Florence, trying this bone-in, rare steak is a must.

· Ribollita. This traditional Tuscan bread-and-vegetable soup is simple, comforting, and packed with flavor.

· Schiacciata. Depending on where you try it in Florence, you might find this flatbread topped with ingredients like prosciutto and pecorino cheese.

See Tour Director Sabra’s favorite gelato spots in the city, and for more signature Florentine dishes, check out The Go Ahead Travel Guide to Florence.

What should I know before visiting Florence?

To snap some truly stunning panoramic photos during your Florence tour, consider skipping the climb to the top of the Duomo and take the 414 steps to the top of Giotto’s Campanile instead. You’ll still enjoy spectacular views of the city, but rather than shooting from the Duomo, the iconic cathedral will star in your photos.
