I no longer escort travelers on day trips to Rome, however I will be happy to assist you with
purchasing a train ticket from Florence (one and a half hour trip) and advise you about how to
use the hop-on-hop-off bus tours there. We can also set you up with a local tour guide in
Rome if you prefer. These options are easily managed and my travelers have had
no problem doing it on their own. Some have traveled to Rome to stay
a couple of days after joining me in Florence.
If there are other towns or cities you would like to visit on your own, I will work with you to
meet a tour guide or purchase train tickets and advise you. Some possibilities might be
Assisi, Cortona, Bologna, Cinque Terre Villages, Milan - all these can be done in a day.
