Explore the Port of Livorno & Florence
Livorno offers numerous possibilities for full-day shore excursions. The most popular is Florence, but we also want to offer our clients (who may have already visited Florence) the possibility of visiting Lucca and Pisa.
Pick up at Livorno. Transfer with driver to Florence. Begin a half-day walking tour (with our special English-speaking guide) of Florence highlights including pre-set admissions to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo’s David. Alternatively clients may choose a three-hour visit to the Uffizi Museum and Santa Croce where Florence’s most famous citizens are buried. Lunch on own. Afternoon free for shopping, wandering and exploring before returning to Livorno.
The ultimate “shop till you drop” tour. Pick up and transfer from Livorno to the Mall, heaven for “Made in Italy” shoppers. This new shopping haven has all of the famous designer names—Valentino, Ferragamo, Gucci, etc. Proceed to Florence for lunch (on own). The afternoon will be dedicated to a tour of the “Artisan Workshops” (Oltrarno)—where Florentine artisans still work on antiques, mosaics, antique silk—escorted by an expert guide who will also point out the artistic and historical splendors on this side of the Arno. Return in late afternoon to Livorno.
LUCCA AND PISA
This tour visits two gems of Italy’s artistic history. Transfer to Lucca for a tour by an expert English-speaking guide of this charming, elegant walled Renaissance city—full of Renaissance and Gothic palaces and old shops. Lunch on own. We will provide a list of recommended restaurants. Then after a brief last-minute stroll through Lucca’s streets, transfer to Pisa for a brief tour (with an English-speaking guide) of the world famous twelfth-century Campo dei Miracoli, including the Duomo, the Baptistry and of course the Leaning Tower. Return to Livorno.
