Florence, biking tour Begin your Italian bicycling vacation with two magical days in Florence, the art lover’s paradise. The Italian province of Tuscany boasts more classified historical monuments than any other region in the world, and the most dazzling are in Florence. The Renaissance began here, and the period’s great works of art are on display throughout the city. Florence also has delightful cafés for relaxing and people-watching. A city that is fun to explore on foot, Florence has many attractions concentrated in the relatively small historic center stretching from Piazza del Duomo south to the Arno River.

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $145

Day 1 - Depart U.S. / Fly overnight to Florence

Depart the U.S. for Italy. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Day 2 - Arrive in Florence / Begin your Trip Extension

Upon arrival at the Florence airport, a VBT local representative meets you outside the customs area and helps you transfer to your hotel. The representative will be holding a VBT sign. If you arrive early, your room may not be ready until 2:00 pm. You may store your luggage with the reception desk. If you are going to be delayed meeting our transfer representative for more than 15 minutes due to delayed or lost luggage, please have airport staff page our driver with your last name so they may be notified of your delay. You may also contact our One Call travel assistance to advise of your delay and they will contact our transfer service. Our drivers are only able to wait for up to 45 minutes from the time your flight lands after which you would be responsible for your own transfer.

At the hotel our local expert will be available at a set time to answer your questions and offer an optional private guided walk to make the most of the city. You have the rest of the day free to explore the city with our VBT City Information included in your Final Travel Booklet as your guide.  Please note: to visit the Uffizi Gallery, you must make reservations in advance. To reserve online, go to www.florence-museum.com. For information on all Florence museums, go to www.italy-museum.com.
 
NOTE: Italian museums are closed on Mondays. 

Day 3 - Independent exploration of Florence

After breakfast, you may wish to explore the city's most famous museum, the Uffizi Gallery (advance tickets required). Or stroll along the shop-lined promenades of the Via Tornabuoni, then cross the river Arno in search of antiques or handicrafts in the Piazza del Duomo.

Day 4 - Independent exploration of Florence / Join VBT Air Package guests

Spend the morning exploring the city on your own. VBT Air Package guests arrive throughout the day.
