We only had a long weekend to do the city and so your tour really helped us get our bearings. There's just so much to see there! I know we only scraped the surface but it worked really well for us.

This was a great tour that took you everywhere you needed to go. Particularly liked the walk through of the mosaic frescoes on the front of the Basilica. We had a great time in Venice, made all the more special by this evocative guide. Like the speaker's voice too - one of the best I've listened to.

FLORENCE CITY GUIDE: It's known as the cradle of the Renaissance but Florence is also where football, paving stones and spectacles were all invented - so the city claims. With our guide to Florence you'll learn not just about the art and architecture of this famous city as you see it, but about why it all happened in Florence.
FLORENCE CITY INFORMATION:
Getting in from Florence Airport:
Flying from Pisa: the train goes direct from the airport to Florence Santa Maria Novella railway station and takes about an hour to an hour and half. There is also a coach service which takes just
over an hour. Both cost about EURO 15. Increasingly flights are coming into the city's own airport Amerigo Vespucci, also as known Peretola. The bus takes about 30 to 45 minutes and arrives at the bus station which is near the railway station. It costs EURO 4. A taxi takes about 20 to 30 minutes and costs about EURO 20.
Getting around Florence:
By Bus: You can walk around the centre of Florence very easily but the bus can be useful. Bus tickets are
available from tabacchi, newsstands and bars and cost EURO 1. Stamp them in the machine on the bus. You can also get a ticket which is valid for unlimited travel over 24 hours called a biglietto venitquattro ore for EURO 4.50 For more information visit www.ataf.net and click 'English version' in the top left hand corner.
By Taxi: Taxis are not easy to find and can be expensive. There are ranks in the Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Santa Maria Novella and Piazza del Duomo amongst other places. The best bet is to ask
