Day Trips to Surrounding Towns

From the 2 star Hotel Stella Mary Florence there are several exciting day trips from Florence.


Known worldwide for its famous Bell Tower, Pisa is easily accessible from Florence. In a little over an hour by train this small city on the right bank of the Arno River makes an ideal day trip. The main sight is of course the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Situated in Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) construction began in 1173. The tower began to lean after construction of the third level due to a poorly laid foundation. Completed in 1372 the tower underwent strengthening works in 1999-2000.

Other sights in Pisa include the Duomo with its stunning mosaics and bronze doors. The Baptistery dedicated to St. John the Baptist is the largest Baptistery in Italy. The Camposanto is said to be the most beautiful cemetery in the world. Bombed in 1944 by allied aircraft it has now been restored to its former glory.


Declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Siena is a one hour bus ride away from Florence. This beautiful walled medieval city has been perfectly preserved over the centuries. The main square, Piazza del Campo, is unique for its shell shape and uneven ground. Housing many public offices, shops, restaurants and bars, this square is one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Twice a year the famous Palio horse race takes place around the edges of the square and leads to days of celebratory parties for the winner.

The Duomo constructed in the 12th century was intended to be the biggest cathedral in the world. However, after funds ran out, construction was quickly completed. Many famous works can be found inside including the Gothic octagonal pulpit by Pisano.

San Gimignano

The walled town of San Gimignano is best reached by car from Florence. Famous for its medieval architecture and its bell towers, this glorious town can be explored in one day. In the 4 main squares, 14 Bell Towers out of 72 still remain today.

Visible from several kilometres away, the surrounding countryside is breathtaking. Take the tourist path around the walls for incomparable views. There are several important churches including Sant’Agostino with a wide variety of works by Renaissance Artists.
