We’re on an upcoming BOE21 day tour and have a question regarding booking additional sightseeing. Under the “Pre-Tour Planning – Sightseeing on Your Own” section it mentions suggestions for sightseeing in Florence that we will not do as a group. Then in the instructions it states, for instance, for Giotto’s Bell Tower … “We recommend booking tickets for Day 11 from opening until 1:00 p.m. or after 6:00 p.m.”
Does that mean we would need to be back to meet our group at 1:00 p.m.? And/or does that mean we are done as a group at 6:00 p.m.? So I could book it for exactly 6:00 p.m.? Or should we allow an hour (or more?) buffer from these times to allow for traveling to/from the attraction?
Thanks for any clarification and advice!
