We used this "tour" really as a transfer to get to Florence as quickly as possible from our Norwegian cruise ship, to visit the Uffizi Art Museum. The only misgiving was that we could have used more time in Florence to see at least one other art museum, but there was simply no time -- driven purely by the ship's schedule. But it was a beautiful day and what we saw of Florence in our high-speed walk from the bus stop to the Uffizi and back looked wonderful.
