Practical Info

This Private Shore-Excursion will depart from Livorno Port. Your driver will be holding a sing with your name on as soon as you disembark where all private tours depart from.

Leisure Italy recommends to start from Pisa first and  then go to Florence to avoid Florence traffic jam in the morning. However you can decide with your driver on tour what do you prefer.

Pisa

From Livorno to Pisa it takes about half an hour: you shall enter the “Piazza dei Miracoli” before it gets crowded. It is a true “Miracle” with its four shining marble buildings dating back to the middle-ages: the Leaning Tower, the Baptistery, the Cathedral and the Old Cemetery. If you like Leisure Italy can book a private guided tour for an introduction to Pisa; if you would like to climb up the Leaning Tower it is certainly  recommended  a reservation. Don’t miss a visit to the Baptistery: be there on the half hour, close your eyes and experience the amazing acoustics of the building….

Time for lunch will be decided according to your needs (however we suggest waiting to get to Florence, where you have lots of choices).

Florence – optional guided walking tour

The  walking part of the itinerary  in Florence you find below involves the optional Private Guided Tour. Therefore the following is just an example – or a suggestion!

Starting from “Ponte Vecchio”, where jewellery 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, which is traditionally the place 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 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 in Florence

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.

Your driver will meet you to bring you back to Livorno’s harbour.
