What people are saying about Porta Romana
The bus tour was a great compliment to walking around the city for an average of 8 miles, 13 kilometers, a day (using my Fitbit watch to measure). Finding the bus stops was easy after we obtained a map on the bus, but the first time we had to hunt and peck locations using maps.google.com. Our ticket was initially printed on the bus scanning the code on the mobile app. The buses were frequent, on time and dependable!
The only disappointment was that our original tickets were for the day when a student climate protest paralyzed Florence. We were not able to get to the bus and when we finally had time to use the tickets, they had expired. Had to purchase new tickets. We enjoyed the ride but the money that we lost because of tickets that we could not use due to local civil unrest has left a bad taste.
Massimo provided a wonderful tour of Florence and Pisa. They met our cruise ship, were on time and got us to Pisa before all the cruise ship busses showed up. Next they took us to Florence were we saw all the major locations followed by a pickup and quick return to our cruise ship. I would use them again as well as possibly use them for a land tour in the future.
Although most of the bus stops are a short walk away from the main attractions, the Hop-on/Hop-off bus shows you a side to Florence you may not have seen otherwise. My favorite parts of the tour were Piazzale Michelangelo and Fiesole. These locations offered views of the city I never would have seen on foot.
Do it to get your Florentine history and to go to Piazzale Michelangelo at sunset (most beautiful sunset going down reflecting over the Arno River!). Also, Line B goes to the mountain Etruscan village of Fiesole, which overlooks Florence and is a nice place to have lunch.
