Day 4: Viareggio (1B)

No city can boast of such artistic richness as the romantic Renaissance city of Florence. Food, art, culture, and beautiful views put this outstanding Italian city in a field of its own. The list of things to see and do in Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside is unlimited, be it art, nature, architecture, history, or food and drink!

Additional Notes:
Please note that it is strongly advised to book tickets in advance for both the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries. The line-ups at these museums are always long and the time to visit them is limited due to the fact that Day 3 is a day trip to Florence. These tickets can be booked online from home before you leave at www.weekendafirenze.com or by phone (+39) 055 294883 from Monday to Friday 08:30-18.30, Saturday 08.30-12.30.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets we recommend that you do so once your G Adventure trip is confirmed (up to 2 months before if possible), especially for the ever-popular Uffizi, and for any time after 11:00 the day your tour visits Florence. For additional museum resources, refer to this website, www.firenzemusei.it, for more information to plan your day in Florence.
