Explore Florence using these 'hop on, hop off' guided bus tours - set your own route and pace.
There are two distinct tour routes for Florence, one taking in the bulk of the sites both to the north and south of the river Arno (Line A, 18 stops, total time 60 minutes), the other concentrating on a slightly smaller, central section before heading out to Fiesole (an Etruscan hilltop village) and some of the finest views imaginable of the splendid city of Florence (Line B, 24 stops, total time 120 minutes). Line C is available from April - October with 24 stops, total time 120 minutes.
The routes criss-cross each other at multiple points, and you are free to switch from one route to the other as many times as you wish. Tickets are valid for 48 hours, and are also valid for travel with the two local bus companies, 'ATAF' and 'Linea'. The accompanying audio tour is available in 8 different languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese). The tours operate on a 'hop-on, hop-off' basis, meaning you may leave and subsequently rejoin the buses at indicated points as often as you like! You can download a (PDF) map showing the routes here.
