What To Expect

Meet your private driver and guide at the Livorno cruise terminal in the morning, and climb into a private vehicle with room for up to eight passengers. Pass through the rolling hills and olive grove of the Tuscan countryside on the drive to Florence, where your personal city guide awaits in the Piazza della Repubblica.

Set off by foot on a 3-hour walking tour of Florence’s historic heart, where the medieval streets are amazingly preserved and steeped in Renaissance lore. The itinerary can be customized to include the sites that most interest you, such as the Duomo Complex, Piazza Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and Ponte Vecchio. You can also visit the world-famous Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo's ‘David’ and other timeless works of Renaissance art (admission not included).

Get tips from your guide on where to enjoy an authentic Tuscan meal (own expense), and, after a 1-hour lunch break, reconnect with your driver for the journey to Pisa. On the way out of town, stop at a panoramic viewpoint to snap photos of Florence’s romantic, red-roofed skyline. In Pisa, enjoy 2.5 hours of independent time to explore the monuments of Piazza dei Miracoli, including the famous Leaning Tower, the cathedral, and the baptistery. Meet your driver at 5:30 for the return trip to Livorno, where you will be dropped off back at your waiting ship.

Great Tour!
Marge_G, Oct 2022
Teresa, our driver, met us as we got off the cruise ship. She drove us to Florence where we met our guide who took us through the city of Florence. We skipped the line to the Accademia Gallery to see Michaelangelo's David and other great works of art. We strolled the streets of Florence stopping at various focal points of interest including Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo. After we ate lunch at a great outdoor cafe, then went to Pisa. We only stayed a brief time in Pisa due to getting back to the ship.
Wonderful day, tailored for us to include Tuscany winery instead of Pisa!
Ronald_B, Sep 2022
Teresa was superb! Since two of our tours were going to include Pisa, she coordinated a stop at a beautiful Tuscan winery for a tasting and light lunch. She also connected with a guide Lara in Florence who provided a very nice overview of Florence and tour of the Accademia/David. Beautiful day and strongly recommend!
Excellent in every way! In spite of...
Otto K, May 2017
Excellent in every way! In spite of traveling to two different locations in one day, we still felt like we saw everything we could without ever feeling rushed. This is due to the tour design as well as our guide in Florence and our driver throughout the tour. The only disappointment was that given our timeframe, we were not able to climb the Tower of Pisa.
