So, you’re considering a Rome to Florence day trip. After hours of desperately trying to experience the Uffizi Gallery via the virtual reality tour available on their website, you’ve decided that a remote tour of Florence from Rome isn’t going to cut it. And now, you’ve turned your attention to figuring out the details of how to get up north. But, you’re not quite sure where to start. Don’t worry. We’re here to help.
