City Sightseeing is known worldwide for its red hop-on/hop-off buses that not only travel through Rome, Naples and Verona - but also through Florence.

In high season, the red double-decker buses run daily on two routes through Florence. In fine weather, the upper deck is open and offers a magnificent view of the city. When it rains, the roof can be closed.
