Day 1

It is a city rich in places to discover but its area and dimensions are actually quite small.If i compare it with Mumbai it is as good as Andheri. If time is short, 1 or 2 days are enough to explore a large part of the city's marvels.A three days tour is highly recommended.

Network of trains and buses are the highly recommend mode of transportation within the city. People may take Campania pass to explore all the art gallery and other associated places. In Florence the cost of Campania pass is more as compared to other Italian cities. But the best part is that it gives access to all 72 historical places of Florence. The campania pass can or tourist short duration tour itinerary can be obtained at the Florence tourism center located next to the Florence main station.
