If you want to explore at bit further out of the city centre (which is recommend), do take this bus. If you don’t, you won’t get up to Fiesole in the Tuscan hills above Florence which is beautiful; you won’t get up to Piazzale di Michelangelo. Yes, it doesn’t go in the city centre but unless you’re extremely lazy you won’t need it to as everything is in walking distance. The company also provides a list of excursions in to the Tuscan countryside.

There are roadworks at the moment which means the Line B bus (the bigger of the two routes) has been diverted. This is not the bus company’s fault though.

Many parts of central Florence have been pedestrianised and the tour buses can no longer access many of the central areas. Whilst there is a timetable in reality service was very hit and miss. The price at 23 Euros is expensive for an unreliable service, we had to wait 45 minutes. The regular buses offer much better value without the commentary

It does not go through the main tourist spots and from the bus you can not see anything interesting and the tickets are quite expensive. The good thing is that it stops at Piazzale Michelangelo from where there is a nice view of the city.

The bus ride was a nice break from walking, but it doesn't go near the top tourist destinations of Florence. We are staying in the historic district and had to leave the area to catch a bus. The only real plus is it took us up to the top of Michelangelo park where the view of Florence is excellent.

We generally like hop on-hop off tours as they are a great way to get acclimated to the city and learn about the history. Also, it usually provides a convenient way to travel to points of interest. Unfortunately, this tour does a large circle around the outskirts of the city. Not worth the price in Florence.

I attached a map with the bus routes.

We always try and do a bus tour when visiting a new city, but although the actual tour was excellent we where disappointed by the winter timetable terminating the tours at 5 o'clock. Even more of a problem was the fact that the winter schedule was not shown on any information and we where left waiting at pick up stops for buses that never turned up!! When we investigated further it transpires that only half the buses were running but they still charged the same ticket price as the summer when the buses run until 11 o'clock, start earlier and are more frequent. This is obvious from the summer timetable we where supplied.
