Just a ride there and back

This tour is simply a ride to Florence and back. Drops you off at the bus station and picks you back up at a designated time. Went smoothly. Back to the boat way before we had to be, however.

This is a walking tour!!!!! My husband has some mobility issues so was uncomfortable. Florence was an interesting city with lots of history. Would have been better with a guide because we got lost a lot especially trying to find the bus pickup area.
