I enjoyed being able to see so much of the city from the bus. The views from Michael Angelo's square are breathtaking. Blue line is much better than the red line. Staff is not very friendly. One employee in particular was extremely rude. When I asked where to get the red line she told me to look her in the eyes and listen.

There were no instructions provided on how to access the buses. The Headout app provided no clarity. Once we finally figured out how to catch a bus, it was an overall good experience.

It was a great day, we had lunch, visited the Roman ruins and the museum on the red route in Fiesole. Both are well worth a look. We intended to only spend 1hr there but stayed for over two. It was nice to be out of the hussel and bussel of Firenze for a while. The rest of the tour is also well worth the money even if it's just to get a background of what to see and do. That how we use the HOHO buses

The "red" route to green Florence with a stop in Fiesole was particularly beautiful. And of course the stop at Michelangelo with the great view of Florence. A great way to get a first impression of the city.
