When your cruise ship docks in Livorno and you have only a single day to see the surrounding Italian towns of Pisa and Florence, you’ll need a privately guided shore excursion to see the best of these picturesque cities. On this trip from Livorno, immerse yourself in Italian life, explore the historic streets of Florence and see the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa before returning to your cruise ship.
Your private driver will pick you up at your ship at Livorno port and take you to the university town of Pisa (approx 30 minutes), where you will have a brief stop and enjoy free time to see the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Baptistery and the Pisa Cathedral. Then, get back in the car for the relaxing drive through the Tuscan countryside to Florence (approximately one hour). As you approach Florence, you'll drive up the Viale dei Colli to the stunning terrace of Piazzale Michelangelo. Here, you can enjoy the most impressive views of the city before continuing down into its heart.You will head to Florence’s city center, where you can admire the Piazza Santa Croce and the pretty Santa Croce church. You’ll also see the impressive Piazza del Duomo (S. Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the Baptistery and Giotto's Bell tower), Piazza della Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio), Piazza della Repubblica and the elegant Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge). You’ll have free time to explore the many shops, watch the street performers, visit a museum or simply enjoy the views over the river. When you’ve finished exploring Florence, jump back in your luxury vehicle for your transfer back to your ship in Livorno.For even more Italian culture, upgrade your shore excursion to include a private guide for three hours in Florence, plus admission into one of Florence’s world-renowned art galleries – either the Accademia or the Uffizi. If you don’t upgrade, you’ll simply explore Pisa and Florence on your own. Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to the Livorno port for this activity.
