Meet your private driver and guide at the Livorno cruise terminal in the morning, and climb into a private vehicle with room for up to eight passengers. Pass through the rolling hills and olive grove of the Tuscan countryside on the drive to Florence, where your personal city guide awaits in the Piazza della Repubblica.
Set off by foot on a 3-hour walking tour of Florence’s historic heart, where the medieval streets are amazingly preserved and steeped in Renaissance lore. The itinerary can be customized to include the sites that most interest you, such as the Duomo Complex, Piazza Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and Ponte Vecchio. You can also visit the world-famous Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo's ‘David’ and other timeless works of Renaissance art (admission not included).
Get tips from your guide on where to enjoy an authentic Tuscan meal (own expense), and, after a 1-hour lunch break, reconnect with your driver for the journey to Pisa. On the way out of town, stop at a panoramic viewpoint to snap photos of Florence’s romantic, red-roofed skyline. In Pisa, enjoy 2.5 hours of independent time to explore the monuments of Piazza dei Miracoli, including the famous Leaning Tower, the cathedral, and the baptistery. Meet your driver at 5:30 for the return trip to Livorno, where you will be dropped off back at your waiting ship.
