While you're there

Florence, the capital of Tuscany region, Italy

Florence (Firenze in Italian) is nestled within the Tuscan region of northern Italy and surrounded by rolling vineyards and olive groves. Visitors are just as beguiled by the beauty of the city itself as they are by the paintings and sculptures found in its many museums. The city was home to many well-known artists, writers, explorers, and scientists. Amongst its most famous residents were Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Galileo. Famous for its rich history and considered as the birthplace of Renaissance the city is nowadays a popular tourist destination and is ranked as a UNESCO World heritage site. Many of Florence’s churches are works of art in themselves. The most famous of the city’s churches is the Santa Maria del Fiore, known simply as the Duomo.


Start your visit from the historic city centre, Piazza del Duomo, where the Baptistery and the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore face each other. Built in the 13th century, the cathedral is a bold and majestic piece of architecture with a fantastic view over the city. It is Florence’s most recognisable symbol and glimpses of its majestic dome can be seen around nearly every corner of the city. On the façade side of the cathedral is the campanile of Giotto, which also has fine views of the city. In front of the Cathedral stands the older, Romanesque-style Baptistery of San Giovanni.

Walking along the lively Via dei Calzaiuoli, you will pass by Orsanmichele, a 14thcentury building that started out life as a granary. At the far end of Via dei Calzaiuoli you will arrive at the Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city. You can visit the museum in the Palazzo della Signoria, which is also home to the seat of Florence City Council. The interior courtyard has a magnificent fountain made by Verrocchio and its frescoes by Vasari. Near the Piazza della Signoria, is the imposing Uffizi Gallery. Designed by Vasari in the 16th century, it is now one of the most important museums in the world. The gallery contains paintings from early masters like Cimabue and Giotto. Continuing on from Ponte Vecchio, you will arrive to Piazza Pitti, which is dominated by the façade of the majestic Palazzo Pitti. Don’t miss the Accademia Gallery, to discover Michelangelo’s celebrated David.

The food in Florence is fresh and locally produced. Antipasto plates (before the meal) are the highlights, especially when served with a good Chianti (red Italian wine), and of course, pizza is served up in abundance as well.

Head towards Piazza Santo Spirito, where you can soak up the lively atmosphere of this corner of the city. The neighbourhood is packed with craft trades, and has a very authentic feel to it.

Customer reviews

  • "Florence to Venice"    
    It is easy to buy tickets from the kiosks.. Trip was smooth and easy. Bathroom was clean.  
  • "Great way to travel in Europe"    
    Comfortable seats, clean toilet and a great way to travel in Europe. Scenic view along the way, which made travelling enjoyable. Information is displayed at strategic spots so you can track your journey. Announcement is made at each station so you wont miss your destination.  
  • "Train travel at its best"    
    Train was on time. We easily found our booked seats which were very comfortable. The train was smart, clean, fast and absolutely punctual. On a month long holiday across 4 countries, this train trip was the best financial value of all our transport costs.  
  • "Good buy"    
    Recommend to book early for a comfortable ride  
  • "Pleasant journey "    
    Clean, nice and comfortable train and seats  
  • "Firenze to Venezia in two hour"    
    There is no better way to get to Venezia from Firenze than the train. Only a few stops and very quick. Seats in business are spacious and comfortable and don't believe what you read about baggage size. There is plenty of baggage storage overhead and oversized bags slide conveniently between the seats so you don't even have to lift the heavy ones  
  • "Fast and efficient"    
    I found the train trip to be well priced, fast and efficient. I particularly liked the service of a drink and biscuit!  
  • ".VENEZIA S. LUCIA - ROMA TERMI"    
    Limited choices/supply in food coach.  
  • "Convenience"    
    Excelent ! on time and extra comfortable value for money and time  
  • "No address for train"    
    It was very hard to find our train, since there was not a train that directly went to Firenze and there were two trains at 16.35. We tried to find the one which passes from Firenze and ended up in the wrong train. So in conclusion : There should me more information on the ticket ... Like the platform, or the terminal station... etc. However, an officer kindly changed our tickets and we had a very comfortable (and lucky) journey.  
  • "Very comfortable"    
    Even though there wasn't enough information on the ticket, we found the train and travelled without any problems. Train is quiet comfortable.  
  • "GOOD TRIP"    
    The coach was comfortable with glass panels to provide privacy and quiet time during the trip. Train was clean,but bins were full of rubbish of previous passengers.These should be emptied at each stop. There is also not enough adequate storage area for tourists with luggage.It is not possible to lift up heavy wheelie bags and store them in the overhead shelf.  
  • "Perfect Trip"    
    Our journey on an express train from Florence to Venice was superb on every count. The train was on time, the seats and amenities were perfect, the staff was very attentive, and the price was extremely affordable. This will be our preferred mode of transportation in the future.  
  • "from Swiss to Italy"    
    We were really enjoyed of using this train, the information regarding the train, the view and also comfortness of the train was very good.  
  • "Florence to Venice"    
    Great way to get to Venice at a affordable rate for 3 adults
