About the ride
Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Rome. After a quick introduction, you will board your private ride and begin your 275 km journey from Rome to Florence - the birthplace of Renaissance.
The relaxing drive will take you through the picturesque and rustic countryside of Rome, allowing you to enjoy the various landscapes.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the A Day in Florence tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding the experience.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
Do I need to be in a good physical shape?
The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. In addition, please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.
BOOK YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE
We strongly recommend booking your tickets for the Colosseum in advance. You can ask your Welcome driver about prices, times and general information on tickets.
BE AWARE OF THE SUMMER HEAT
In the summer months be sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and perhaps a hat, to shield yourself from the sun. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout the tour with the water provided.
Bring cash in the form of local currency (Euros), as many of the local vendors don’t accept card payments.
SPECIAL NEEDS & ACCESSIBILITY
Please let us know if anyone in your group has special needs, or specific accessibility requirements, and we will be sure to accommodate your needs and tailor the tour accordingly.
