Plenty of free time and comfortable ride. The guides were very accomodating. We accidently left our bag at a restaurant and asked if we could go back late in the afternoon miles away... the guide was happy to call the restaurant on our behalf and went back to pick it up before heading back to Rome. Great service!

Day trip from Rome worth the time and money

The tour included pickup from our hotel. Our group was small, 5 total. It was ~6hrs in the van and ~6hrs for the tour/sightseeing and lunch. Guides were very helpful and friendly. The drive from Rome to Florence/Pisa were very scenic. We saw a couple of ancient village and countless fields of yellow sun flower (June/July). Long drive and a long day but it was worth it. Highly recommended.
