Meet your expert guide at Livorno’s port, then board your air-conditioned transfer vehicle and relax on the scenic journey to Pisa. As you travel, gaze out of the window and take in views of the idyllic Italian countryside. After approximately 30 minute drive, arrive in Pisa and visit the Field of Dreams (Piazza dei Miracoli), a verdant expanse that is home to the city’s three most important sights: the Baptistery, the Duomo and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Here, enjoy around an hour of free time to get up close to these incredible landmarks and perfect your Leaning Tower poses.

Marvel at the intricacy of the pink, white and green marble that blankets the exterior. Then, turn your attention to the cupola, which dominates Florence’s iconic skyline. Hear how the showstopper, designed by 13th-century architect Arnolfo di Cambio, took 170 years to complete.Next, head for Piazza della Signoria. Pause for photos by the replica of Michelangelo’s famous David. Then, wander through the Loggia dei Lanzi, the open-air gallery that contains a collection of beautiful sculptures.Continue to Ponte Vecchio, an ancient bridge that is as much a symbol of Florence as the Duomo’s striking red cupola.
