My wife and I took the last tour of the day which didn't allow us to do the hop on & hop off portions. The route taken gives you some very good sights but not much opportunity to take pictures.

Florence is too small a city for a sightseeing HoHo bus. Yes, the bus does cover outlying suburbs but you can always visit those places by buying transport pass. Book your tickets in advance for Tower climb and David, you will be fine

Used this service to get to some of the sights of Florence and Fiesole. The buses ran to schedule, we never had to wait more than few minutes for one, and also got a seat on the top deck.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
