This article is an analysis for tourists who originally arrived in Rome and appreciate the opportunity to set aside a day to visit Tuscany and / or its capital.

Florence does not need to be promoted on our website, it is definitely a city that must be visited. Our publication is analysis dedicated to the choice of the method of moving and has several tasks that it should help to choose our company, which deals with transfers and excursions in Italy, and at the same time for you.


1. To attract potential customers;

2. To discourage the interest in our service from those tourists who:


-  try to save on rest (without real saving) at the expense of their own comfort, forgetting that only a comfortable vacation can help to relax and rest;

- refuse to save their own time spent in Italy, which can be used to visit different, very interesting and unique places;

- agree to travel in cramped conditions, experience stress, get lost and be late.


3. To bring full information to all travelers (not only tourists) who are going to travel from Rome to Florence or from Florence to Rome to enable them to compare the advantages and disadvantages of traveling by train and our transfer, evaluating them in three ways:

- time (hours) spent on the road

- cost (€) per transfer and per tour

- comfort (*****)


So, let’s take into consideration the most common, average, judging by the basis of our orders, case, a family of 4, staying in the center of Rome, decides to set aside a day to visit Florence.

An approximate program of their journey using railway transport, provided that they have already ordered all the tickets and they will not have to waste time on the queue and the search will look like this:


1. Hotel -> railway travel

8:35 - a taxi call (it is better to book in advance so as not to miss the train) and a transfer from their hotel to the station.

You can also get to Rome Termini or Tiburtina train stations by public transport, but then you need to leave much earlier, therefore it is better to discard this option immediately (although daredevils who choose it can boast a cost close to zero ~ €3, but comfort can be estimated as zero too)


9:20 (this is the real time the train departure from Termini is taken as an example) after searching for the platform and the car, boarding and sending the train from the railway station.

To summarize this first stage:

Time will depend on where they live.

from 0.5 hours to 1 hour.

Minimum value. - 0.5 hours

The maximum value. - 1 hour

Average value ~ 0.75 hours


Cost -

from €8 if:

a) you met an honest taxi driver in a public taxi;

b) your hotel is not very far from the station;

up to €35 when ordering a car in the "Car service" - such as ours, with an escort service that takes you to the platform and helps with boarding the train.

Minimum value. - €8

Maximum value - €35

The average value is ~ €21.


Comfort -

from ** if they have to wait or look for a taxi - in case of ordering a municipal taxi, then run around the railway station in search of the platform and maybe worry a bit.

to **** if they take "Car service" with escort service.

Minimum value. *

The maximum value. ****

Average value ~ ***

2. Rome -> Florence travel

9:20-10:52 two main types of high-speed trains run between Rome and Florence - Eurostar and Italo

The main disadvantage of this transport is inconvenience if you have suitcases with you, there is nowhere to put them and you need to leave them unattended.

Time - on the schedule for everyone the same 1.5 hours (in fact, it’s not always like that)

Average value ~ 1.5 hours


Cost -

From €25 / person in a common economy class carriage

up to €93 / person ordering a coupe

Minimum value. - €25 / person. 4 = €100

Maximum value - €92 / pers. x4 = €372

Average value ~ €59 / pers. x4 = €236


Comfort -

From * in a common economy class carriage

to ***** ordering a coupe

Minimum value. - *

The maximum value. - *****

Average value ~ ***


3. Train station -> the center of Florence (usually the city cathedral of Florence) travel

 10:52 - arrival at the station, search for a taxi or public transport or a meeting with the driver waiting on the platform with a sign, if you ordered "Car service" with escort 

 11:22 - arrival in the center of Florence

Time

Minimum value. - 0.2 hours

The maximum value. - 0.5 hours

So, we can summarize the travel from a hotel in Rome to the center of Florence, if you are going to use the services of the Italian Railways, then the road will take you from 2 hours 12 minutes to 3 hours - one way

or from 4 hours 24 minutes to 6 hours (round trip)

However, you can:

-Travel without comfort for about €56 / person (if you most liked this optionl, you are definitely not our client !!!)

-Travel with relative comfort for €220 / person if this is the option that suits you do not waste time, order our transfer right now we guarantee the best service and save your money!!!

Time


Minimum value. - 0.5 hours + 1.5 hours + 0.2 hours = 2.2 hours x2 = 4.4

The maximum value. - 1 hour + 1.5 hours + 0.5 hours = 3 hours x2 = 6

Average value ~ 0.75 + 1.5 hours + 0.35 hours = 2.5 hours x2 = 5


For comparison, our transfer from the center of Rome to the center of Florence will last ~ 2 hours 50 minutes one way (according to the Google Maps), usually this time indicator is lower, since our cars use special, dedicated, "preferential" lanes to move around the city, which reduces time.


Cost - 

Minimum value.     -  8€+100€+7€=115€/4 ~ 28€/person х 2 = 56€/person

The maximum value.     - 35€+372€+35€=442€ ~110€/person x 2 = 220€/person

Average value                  ~21€+236€+21€=278€ ~ 69€/person х 2 = 138€/person


For comparison, our transfer definitely "*****" will save you from the need for transfers and expectations, and the comfortable Mercedes will be completely at your disposal, we will also add the opportunity to stop when you want and (attention!) - to smoke!
