Our English speaking driver will meet you at the dock beside your cruise ship at 8.00am (suggested time) or at any time you decide to start your shore excursion from Livorno.
In the morning, you’ll drive through Pisa to admire “Piazza dei Miracoli” and the famous “Leaning Tower”. Then, you’ll go to Florence, stopping on the way at Piazzale Michelangelo for a spectacular view of Florence, the entire Arno Valley, and the Ponte Vecchio crossing the Arno River. After, you will drive right into the historical center of the city where one of our expert, local guides will be waiting to introduce you to the city. As you walk through the streets and piazzas of Florence, we’ll discuss the ideas of the Renaissance, the lives of many famous artists, the Medici family who showered Florence with countless masterpieces, and how life changed forever during this period in the history of Florence.
Ideal for the first time visitor, this tour includes visits to Brunelleschi’s Duomo, the Church of Santa Croce, Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio. You will enjoy a casual lunch at a local Trattoria after a visit to the original marble statue of David housed in the Accademia museum of Florence. As we will pre-arrange reservations in order to make the most of your time with our guide in the city of Florence, we guarantee no standing-in-line at the Accademia Museum to view Michelangelo’s David. You will return to your ship around 5.30pm.
Please note that the Uffizzi Gallery & the Accademia museum are closed every Monday.
