Additional info

Lines to visit some monuments can take precious time. If you choose a guide option we can make reservation for you for the followings sites: Uffizi Gallery and Accademia in Florence. Or we can advise you on how to book it yourself.

This Private Shore-Excursion will depart from Livorno Port. Your English speaking professional driver-guide will welcome you, as soon as you disembark, in the area where all private tours depart from. He will be holding a sign with your name on.


Your English Speaking Driver-Guide will give you some hints about Tuscany on the way to Florence.

The first stop of your private Shore-Excursion to Florence shall take place at the Piazzale Michelangelo, to dominate Florence at a glance, the Arno river and the massive mole of Brunelleschi Dome.

Then your Private Tour will reach the old town. This area is mostly pedestrian, so you will agree on a meeting place with your driver to go back to  Livorno later on.

Optional Florence walking tour:

To make the best of your experience we recommend  you take our private guided walking tour with our experienced local guides.

The following itinerary is an example of our private walking tour:

Crossing the river on the “Ponte Vecchio”, where jewelry stores are still shining since 1400, you will enter the town square, Piazza della Signoria. Here you can see Palazzo Vecchio, The Uffizi Gallery and the Loggia with all its antiques and renaissance statues. Hence you will go to Santa Croce Square, which is traditionally the area where you find all the leather production in Florence. Then you walk to Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, to admire one of the greatest achievements of the architecture of all time: this is Brunelleschi Dome. Opposite the Cathedral you shall not miss the Gate of Paradise (one of the Baptistery entrances) with Ghiberti masterpieces.

Free time

During your free time you could take a chance to go to the Central Market, where Florentines buy their groceries. This place also offers some simple but authentic lunch opportunities.

If you feel like bargaining for leather, San Lorenzo is your place. However to find genuine leather Leisure Italy recommends the area of Santa Croce.

Optional Museum reservations

If you are interested in visiting the two major museums in town, Leisure Italy can provide you with a reservation for the Accademia to see the David by Michelangelo, or for the Uffizi Painting Gallery. This is the only way to skip the long lines. Upon your request, you can keep your private guide for the entire day. Please be aware that tickets are limited and linked to admission time. The visit must be planned in advance.

 At last, meet your driver and make your way back to Livorno.
