Our English-speaking chauffeur/guide will welcome you at the dock beside your cruise ship in Livorno at 8.00am (suggested time).
This excursion combines a brief visit to Pisa to admire “Piazza dei Miracoli” and the famous “Leaning Tower” via the modern highway to Florence. Your driver-guide will meet you at the ship to start your tour. Upon reaching the city, you will pause at Piazzale Michelangelo for a spectacular view of Florence, the entire Arno Valley, and the Ponte Vecchio crossing the Arno River. You’ll also visit the Church of Santa Croce where Michelangelo is buried.
You will have some free time for shopping before continuing to “Accademia Museum” (Possibility of booking on request; closed on Mondays) to visit the Statue of David by Michelangelo or to the “Uffizi Galery.” After the Museum, we will reach the main square of the city where you can see Santa Maria del Fiore, the Cathedral, the Giotto bell tower, and the Baptistery. After, you can take a stroll along narrows streets, visiting Palazzo Vecchio (residence of the Medici family), and Ponte Vecchio, which is famous for its “Gold market.” You can stop for an optional lunch to enjoy the traditional Italian cuisine. If we have enough time, we will visit Palazzo Pitti and the S. Lorenzo district, famous for its leather market. We will then return to the port of Livorno at the time you indicate.
This tour is conducted by an English-speaking chauffeur/guide that will not enter sites, but drive you around and show you places, pointing out things while explaining what they are, stopping at the places that require a visit and helping you access them.
