Florence: Bus Tours
City of Stone
Bus tours of Florence are an excellent option if you want to see a different side of the city. You can't drive a double-decker down the narrow medieval streets, so it is a good way to see the other parts, further out. Bus tours in Florence even run up to Fiesole, for the best views of the area. The modern double-decker buses, with an open top deck, are an entertaining way to tour the city, and should appeal particularly to families with children. They offer commentaries (through headphones) in several languages, including English, and sightseeing on the top deck you'll enjoy sweeping views.
Bus tours in Florence do cost more than normal public transport, but you'll be able to sit down in comfort, learn as you travel and take as many photographs as you like. City Sightseeing run two routes, which visit some interesting spots, such as San Miniato and Fiesole. Tickets are valid for 24 hours, so you get the freedom to travel around and take your time while you are having fun.
