We first encountered the "On-Off Buses" in Barcelona, Spain and we are SOLD on this simple and very effective tourist experience.
The Verona On-Off Bus can be boarded at several stops all over Verona, but across from the main train station is the best location. We purchased a two day pass for about $30 Euro and had a ball!
The buses are double-decker with stairs that are easy to climb. Great shooting platforms for photographers. You climb aboard, get a pair of ear buds handed to you, find a seat and then plug your buds into the guided tour audio player by selecting the flag of your country or language. Easy!
In each city there is a minimum of two different routes and anywhere between 10-15 stops along the way. The best way to do it we found is to ride an entire route without getting off so you can learn about the history of the city. Then take a second trip and jump off at the stops you circled during your first trip around the city. The buses are great about picking you up every 15-30 mins. You just have to look at the bus schedule to know when.
In Florence, make sure that you take the two different routes (Red and Blue) that take you along the Arno River and then the longer route that takes you out into the Verona neighborhoods.
The On-Off Buses are one of the most interesting and informative attractions in any city where you find them. Cheap, efficient, educational, fun and kid friendly. Enjoy! Ciao.
