Florence & Pisa
From the moment we meet you at the Port of Livorno our driver and guide will take care of you so that you can sit back and enjoy your day in Florence and Pisa. Any last minute adjustments, within reason, can be made if you have had a change of heart.
Our first stop is to see the Famous Leaning Tower of Pisa set in the impressive Campo of Miracles and that backdrop of the Cathedral and baptistry. Its more than just photo op as our guide will explain before we head off to Florence to avoid the stream of tourists.
In Florence our guide will take you on a journey through the markets, the Duomo Cathedral, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio and so much more. Florence is not just about art, the Medici family and history, but so much more and it takes our local knowledge to show you the other side of Florence which most tourists miss. The culture of cuisine and wine in Florence is different to other parts of Tuscany, and love to show you this other world.
Hidden from view in the back alleys we take you to a local Florentine Enoteca to try some typical local food and wine in the Florentina way and standing on the street sipping a glass as the world goes by.
Take a more off the beaten track approach to your day and relax through the squares and markets of Florence, enjoy a long Florentina lunch and glass of wine or explore some of the churches, works of art or grandeur Palaces. There is the magical world of the Officina Profumo di S.M Novella, the Gelato, Loggia and the stories behind the families who helped create this amazing city.
Lunch isn’t provided but depending on your tastes we have some of our favourite food locations we would love to share with you. We are foodies and wine lovers. How can we not be living in Italy?
Whichever way you prefer, we make it a day for you to experience Florence’s Real Experiences before returning you back to the port of Livorno in your luxury private transfer.
It’s your choice and freedom to make it your special day in Florence.
