Itinerary

In one day see as much as you can of these two gems of Tuscany. They both are UNESCO sites and, since Florence is bigger and offers more in terms of artistic beauties, I advise to dedicate more time to Florence, and on the way back to Livorno have a quick stop in Pisa.

Naturally the itinerary is fully customizable, and in case you were interested (for example) to climb the leaning tower, we will set up a different schedule of the day.

Meet your driver guide at the cruise facility in Livorno and depart to Florence, before visiting the historical center, don’t miss a quick stop in Piazzale Michelangelo. It is an esplanade that overlooks Florence: the perfect viewpoint from where take pictures of the Florence skyline.

Afterwards drive down to the center, your driver-guide will provide a map and information for reaching the main monuments on your own, remember that In Florence the main squares and monuments are near to each other: Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, or if you wish to go further he will take you by Santa Croce or Santa Marian Novella, or if you reserved the entrance to a museum like Uffizi or the Accademia, all necessary information to reach them will be provided.

Afterward, enjoy some time at leisure for a typical Florentine meal or for some shopping.

In the afternoon depart to Pisa, your personal driver-guide will drop you off near the leaning tower. It’s not only the tower, but even all other buildings are totally amazing: The Duomo, The Baptistery, The Cemetery, they were built about 900 years ago, and are still standing in all their beauty.

Afterward, meet your driver-guide and return to Livorno.
