Tour Details

The day long journey of adventure begins as you leave the port at La Spezia for a scenic, comfortable 2 hour ride to Florence, widely considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

Once you have arrived, admire the terracotta-tiled dome of the Duomo cathedral and pop into the shops on the medieval Ponte Vecchio stone bridge. Art lovers will swoon at the chance to see such masterpieces as Michelangelo's David, da Vinci's Annunciation and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. Enjoy approximately 3 and a half hours of free time in this lovely Renaissance Italian city.

Continue to the city of Pisa, an approximately 70 minute ride from Florence, where you will find the iconic Leaning Tower as well as the famed Piazza dei Cavalieri which was once used as the headquarters of the Knights of Saint Stephen. While here be sure to eat some cecina, a delicious gluten-free bread made of chickpea flour, water, oil and spices. You'll have about 1 hour of free time to admire the sights in Pisa before making your way back to La Spezia, about 45 minutes away.

Throughout the day your tour assistant will share suggestions with you while on the bus as you make your way to each city. You will also receive a detailed map with notes about the monuments.

This all-day tour is perfect for those who want to see the sights independently yet don't have the time or want the stress of researching and planning. Sign up now and get ready to experience the classic cities of Florence and Pisa at your leisure and make memories of a lifetime.

Florence was fantastic, but time spent there too short. Pisa, not much there, wouldn't go there again. Excursion time too limited, not enough time to venture on your own.

4 StarsToo much to see in little timeAugust 13, 2018

Reviewer: steve
we were rushed through entire process and tour not much more than a bus drive

4 StarsA quick look at Florence and PisaAugust 06, 2018

Reviewer: Brent Bereska
This excursion did give you the opportunity to explore Pisa and Florence without being on a guided tour, however, it seemed like we spent more time on the tour bus than at the two cities. We were only in Florence for 3 hours and at Pisa for less than 1 hour. I would have liked to have the opportunity to visit just one of the two places and spend more time there.

Reviewer: Shana P
This was a great tour. We really just wanted transportation to Florence and time there to explore on our own. The bus ride was comfortable and the tour guide knowledgeable. Pisa was a fun stop too.

Bus was comfortable and Air conditioned. The amount of time at the locations and walking to the "meet-up" points was a little rushed. Guides were friendly.
