Learn how the iconic cupola was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, a 13th-century architect, and took some 170 years to complete.

Your next stop is Piazza dell Signoria, home to a copy of 'David,' the celebrated statue by Michelangelo. Amble through Loggia dei Lanzi, an open-air area of sculptures to see examples of Florentine art in the great outdoors.

Walk onward to the Ponte Vecchio, the age-old bridge that has become of the city’s most iconic sights. Pose for photos, and then stop by the strikingly beautiful Basilica of Santa Croce.

Lunch at your own expense in Florence.

In the afternoon, return to your vehicle for the ride back to port.

Marco was an excellent tour guide, he was very informative, jovial and made the day one to remember. The tour content was good and as described and we had plenty of free time to wander round at both venues. The size of the tour was fine and the size of bus limited the walking to and from the bus. Overall a memorable tour made more so be Marco and the driver.

We enjoyed this tour very much and were quite impressed with our tour guide Stephania who was very knowledgeable being from Florence. She had a great sense of humour and she kept the group well organized. Learned from that Canada was actually the producer of Genoa salami We started at Pisa in the morning to avoid the larger crowds arriving later. We were given about an hour to go around the Pisa square etc.,as well as walk down adjoining streets. We continued late morning to Florence and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk through the streets of Florence seeing the amazing architecture and sculptures. We also had time to dine on our own at the Galleria which had many fine shops and small vendors. A future trip to stay longer in Florence would be suggested to see more of this beautiful city.

Stefania was our guide and she was a total champion. Her knowledge and passion for the region was on display. We learned so much about Tuscany, Pisa, and Florence, and had such a great time in the process! One of our other guides made a comment that telling stories and sharing knowledge is the easy part of a tour, and that keeping track of everyone is the real challenge. That is very true and I admire and appreciate how determined and organized Stefania was! We got a late start when a couple arrived almost an hour after our scheduled start time, claiming they were prevented from disembarking from our ship (they were consistently late/got lost/disappeared all day so it's more likely they just got a late start and told a lame lie instead of being adults about it), but Stefania promised she would have us back to our ship in time, and she did! Also, when the aforementioned couple disappeared on our way to our bus in Pisa, it was pouring rain and Stefania walked back and managed to find them so we could get on our way to Florence. She went above and beyond to keep everyone together. Thank you Stefania, it was a pleasure spending the day with you!

Stephanie our tour guide was AMAZING on Sept 19, 2019. She made everyone feel like she was giving them a private personal tour. She remembered names, answered every question, had great insight on what to do, gave us enough time and was one of the best tour guides I've every had. I was in a group of ten and we LOVED her and everyone wants to recommend her again and again.

A great day with Katia in Florence and Pisa
Leslie C
, Sep 2019
This was the first stop on our cruise and was our daughter's birthday. She had been wanting to go to Florence for a long time and the tour did not disappoint. From the very beginning of the tour, things were very well organized. The company had representatives at the ship to direct us to the correct shuttle bus to reach our tour guide (much less stressful meeting point than some of our other tours). Our tour guide was Katia and she was fantastic! The tour group consisted of about 25 people and she did a great job managing the large group, making it feel much smaller and intimate. She provided incredible insight into Italian history and culture during the bus ride to both Pisa and Florence, making the time go by quickly. She was very well organized, utilizing headsets so that everyone could hear her as we toured the busy streets of Pisa and Florence. I appreciated that she gave us as much free time as she could in each location and made great recommendations for lunch, gelato, and shopping in Florence! Definitely a tour we would highly recommend!

Our guide Stephanie was great, knowledgeable and was with us the entire time and gave us ample free time in Florence for lunch and shopping. We were given clear instructions on where to meet once we got off the cruise and the drop off was right by the cruise. Would recommend for those on a cruise looking to explore both Pisa and Florence in one day!
