Full description
Enjoy a full-day private shore excursion of Pisa and Florence from Livorno Port and discover the cradle of the Renaissance, one of the most important periods for art and architecture in history. Sit back and relax as you drive through the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. As you approach Florence, drive up the Viale dei Colli to Piazzale Michelangelo for the most impressive views of the city. Follow an uphill road, bordered by ancient walls, to Forte Belvedere, built by the Grand-Duke Ferdinand to protect his Medici villas. Enter the city via the Porta Romana to Pitti Palace, home to the Gallery of Modern Art, Costume Gallery, Palatine Gallery, Royal Apartments, Coach Museum, and Silver and Porcelain Museums, as well as the magnificent Boboli Gardens. The next stop is the Piazza della Repubblica, surrounded by historical literary cafés. Following the Via De'Calzaiuoli, admire masterpieces of Renaissance architecture around the Duomo. Your driver is completely at your disposal and will be happy to take you to Piazza Santa Croce to visit the Santa Croce Church to see where many famous Italians are buried. Cross the elegant Ponte Vecchio, still home to gold and jewelry vendors. For shopping hounds and hungry souls, explore the stores and trattorias of the city center, and sample a scrumptious plate of pasta or grab a smart new leather jacket. The most important street for shopping is Via De' Tornabuoni, with designer boutiques like Prada, Gucci, Armani, Cartier, and much more. You can also discover local crafts in small workshops in the Santa Croce or Santo Spirito neighborhoods. Or practice your bargaining skills at the San Lorenzo outdoor market. In the afternoon, you will drive to Pisa and explore the gentle town as it recalls the days of the Pisan Republic. See the astonishing Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), home to the medieval Duomo, Baptistery, and legendary Leaning Tower.

Massimo provided a wonderful tour of Florence and Pisa. They met our cruise ship, were on time and got us to Pisa before all the cruise ship busses showed up. Next they took us to Florence were we saw all the major locations followed by a pickup and quick return to our cruise ship. I would use them again as well as possibly use them for a land tour in the future.

Laura picked us up on time in a prestige clean SUV and drove us safely all day with the most extraordinary dialogue. What she does no know about Tuscany is not worth knowing. Showed us all the usual tourist places and some not so well known. Offered water and sweets to suck on if we needed and dropped us back at the Port in time for us to sail. Highly recommend.

Wonderful tour, we enjoyed every moment of it. Our driver was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We arrived in Pisa early in the morning before the large tour groups and had the place practically to ourselves to enjoy and explore. Florence was beautiful and our driver was extremely knowledgeable and showed us the most amazing sites; he even recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch that we would not have been able to find and enjoy without his help!
