What You Can Expect

When your cruise ship docks at the port of Livorno, meet your guide and step aboard your transport for the journey to Pisa. After 30 minute drive stop at Piazza dei Miracoli to see the city’s three key sights: the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Duomo and Baptistery. Make the most of an hour of free time here to sightsee independently, and perhaps strike a pose for the perfect photo by the Leaning Tower of Pisa.


Proceed to Florence ( 1,5 hour drive), passing through stretches of scenic Italian terrain, arrive in the Tuscan capital for your tour.


Admire the Renaissance architecture that flanks the picture-perfect streets, and stretch your legs on a stroll around Piazza del Duomo. The square is home to Florence Duomo, aka the Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori, so turn your attention to its colorful marble exterior and its crowning glory: the terracotta cupola, aka Brunelleschi's Dome. 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.

Recently we had a tour of Florence and Pisa conducted by Stephania. The tour could not have been improved upon. Stephania not only knew of the history of the city and it's people, she also knew the history of each building and showed a thoroughly comprehensive knowledge of her country. We could not be happier with Viator and have yet to be disappointed with any of their tours.

Great tour! We were picked up right by the exit from the cruise ship terminal. The guide provided great information on the trip to Pisa. We were allowed just enough free time at Pisa to explore the area. The guided tour of Florence was informative with a break to grab lunch.

This tour was excellent. We traveled in an 8-passenger van which was able to access the city streets and put us in short walking distance to the Florence highlights. Additionally, our driver Marco allowed us sufficient time to do some shopping as well as sightseeing. He also brought us to a local restaurant for lunch and before departing Florence, he brought us to a gellato shop for delicious dessert! Marco was very knowledgeable and a good driver. If you only have one day to see Florence and Pisa this is the way to go!

A fantastic day out, well organised and guided with much enjoyment by Stephanie who made the day with all her information and stories. She tried to make sure we saw as much as possible in the time allowed. Our only worry came at the end of the trip when, due to traffic, we thought we might not make it back to ship on time but our driver negotiated the traffic well and got us back with 2 minutes to spare.

Our tour was the best, it was everything we wanted and more. Half the price of what we would have paid for a tour booked on our cruise.

An excellent tour led by fabulous Marco and his colleague in the blue suit whose name I fortunately do not recall. Marco was a subject matter expert in all things Pisa and Florence and indulged our group's many curiosities about everyday Italian life as well. He and blue suit sorry! were also very kind in advising my daughter about a fair price for a leather jacket she purchased in Florence. Anyone can recite the history of these places as they guide a group, but an excellent, lively, and knowledgable guide like Marco is what takes a tour from four stars to five. THANKS MARCO!

Our tour guide, Stefania was superb and professional. She has a sense of humour and was always caring about her team, making sure nobody went astray. Her passion on the job is very much appreciated. She is second to none!

Absolutely fantastic tour. Stepania was just the perfect tour guide. A great mix of local history and humour. We managed to see just about everything. Well organised and all very much on time. Highly rated tour and for a fraction of the cruise operators costs
