Tour Itinerary

One of Florence's most notable citizens, Dante Alighieri, was exiled from the city in the 1300s. Unlike Dante, you'll be welcomed to Florence with open arms! Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted by your one-of-a-kind Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, help arrange your activities, offer suggestions, and ensure your Florence trip runs smoothly. Florence has so much to offer—historical landmarks, world-class museums, spectacular cuisine and wine, an abundance of works of art, and much more—that we know it can be overwhelming. That's why we've arranged the services of a Local Host to assist you. Plus, on this Florence trip, we've also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing.Your Italy trip begins when you arrive in Florence. Your Local Host will greet you with a friendly smile and a set of materials to help familiarize you with the city. You can begin exploring immediately and the next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing of the must-see attractions. We'll take you to the Academy of Fine Arts to see Michelangelo's David. You'll hear inside stories as we take you for a walk through the city center to see Cathedral Square; sculpture-studded Piazza della Signoria, the center of the city's political life since the 14th century; and Santa Croce Square. And never fear… your inside visit includes VIP access, which means you get to skip the line! After all, why waste time waiting in line like all the other tourists when you can be up close and personal with the treasures inside the Academy of Fine Arts?You'll also have time to explore on your own. You may want to take a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world's most famous art museums with works by da Vinci, Botticelli, and Michelangelo. Perhaps shop at the famous designer houses or browse the shops on the medieval Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge that has housed stores since the 13th century. You may decide to take an excursion to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower; explore the secret passages of Palazzo Vecchio, constructed in 1299; or take a walking tour to visit some of the sights featured in Dan Brown's book Inferno. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions and can help arrange the activities you desire while vacationing in Florence. Florence is a city with a deep history and artistic heritage. It offers everything from mouth-watering cuisine to exciting museums and beautiful churches. We want to make it easy for you to travel here, which is why we've arranged your hotel reservations, guides, sightseeing, and breakfast. All you have to do is grab your camera and get ready for an exciting adventure. Add the comfort of knowing you'll have someone there throughout your stay, and you've got the perfect Florence vacation!

Our trip was wonderful. Everything that was offered was provided. The local hosts were great and professional.

By Damon C on Jun 18, 2019

The travel consultants are knowlegeable about tour details and do a great job matching customer needs with the right tour.

By Dean S on Apr 28, 2019

Monograms was just the right mix for us. City tours and transportation were great - but we enjoyed the flexibility of going out and seeing what we wanted to see at our own pace.

By Mark O on Apr 01, 2019

Outstanding service and organized. Would recommend to anyone.

By Andrea H on Nov 05, 2018

I wouldn't change a thing. From start to finish-professional advice and detailed explanation of what to expect-a great adventure!

By Linda S on Oct 29, 2018

The Monograms local host system worked like clockwork. They were there as scheduled and took the worry out of flight, hotel, and tour transfers.

By Morrisann W on Aug 11, 2018

A trip that I found to be a nightmare to try and plan on my own was made so easy by having Marianne take charge and make all of the arrangements. I had been searching on line, had met with a local travel agent, and was overwhelmed and really getting nowhere. I was ready to give up on my trip planning, stumbled across finding Marianne, and suddenly she made the seemingly impossible happen with no problems! Without her expertise guiding me along and handling the arrangements, I have no doubt that this trip would not have happened. As for the trip: Monograms did a superb job with putting their package together. It more than exceeded my expectations. this will undoubtedly rank as one of my best trips EVER.

By Trevor C on Jul 23, 2018

Monograms was fantastic. We were independant and did not use them for many of the excursions but they were very helpful for first day orientation, suggestions and were available throughout for any questions. The included half day tours were very good. If you wanted to have everything arranged for you instead of being independant there were many good excursions to choose from.

By Marisol S on Jun 28, 2018

Very well organized tour, knowledgeable guides. Have a wonderful time.

By Dana J on Jun 03, 2018

Monograms was wonderful! Everything was just as they promised. The travel was easy, there were no surprises, it was a stress-free vacation! Having the local host available was great. They were all valuable.

By Nancy W on Apr 08, 2018

This is our third trip booked with Trena through Affordable Tours using the Globus company. The trip went off without a single glitch from flights to airport transfers to hotel.

By Marianna F on Apr 03, 2018

Monograms, for the most part, was great We loved the "independent tour" format which gave us much more flexibility with our time in each place we visited. The local hosts were great-some better for us than others--but very helpful. The city tours which were provided varied in quality but usually gave a good overview of the city. A couple of our hotels were not as good as others (construction in progress, smaller rooms or breakfast not as comprehensive) but all were clean and adequate. Two of our flights were changed by the airlines, but the transportation contracted by Monograms did not get the change (schedule change occurred weeks before we left the US for our trip) so did not arrive to take us to the airport. Thank goodness for Uber!

By Chio S on Mar 29, 2018

The hotels were wonderful, I can't complain about that.

By Jo Ann C on Mar 08, 2018

Monograms tours was professional & efficient from start to finish. Getting us from location to location, professional staff located at a desk at each hotel available during the day & accessible by phone, amazing locations in each city (London, Paris, France) near landmarks...highly recommend.

By Jeffrey K on Sep 12, 2017

The trip was amazing, and we couldn't have done it without Affordable Tours' help.
