Private Pisa and Florence Highlights Tour
During this Livorno excursion, enjoy dazzling views of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo, which sits on a hilltop on the south bank of the Arno river. A 10-minute drive will bring you into the city center, where you can visit Palazzo Vecchio, the grand town hall with it's soaring bell tower. Outside, in the Piazza della Signoria, you'll find the Fountain of Neptune surrounded by grinning satyrs and wild sea horses. The piazza also has a reproduction of Michaelangelo's David. And, of course, you can go see the David himself at Accademia di Belle Arti, or see Botticelli's The Birth of Venus at Uffizi Gallery. Florence is the home to many treasured pieces of art in its bevy of wonderful museums and galleries.
As the cradle of the Renaissance, and a true jewel of Tuscany, Florence is, of course, also a great place to eat and shop. Treat yourself to a wonderful lunch (not included) and some of Tuscany's finest wine, and search the stores for some handmade treasures or brand name clothing from Italy's top fashion houses, like Prada and Armani.
The return trip will bring you to Pisa, where you'll have free time to visit the iconic Leaning Tower and the Square of Miracles, where the Cathedral and Baptistery welcome thousands of visitors every year.

This was an incredible day in Pisa, Florence, and Tuscany. Our driver was on time and got us to Pisa before any of the other tours/busses. There were no crowds and we had a fantastic morning in Pisa. We then drove to Florence and the driver took us to a lookout for photos before taking us to the center of the city and providing us with a map and directions. We didn't spend too much time in Florence as our driver gave us the option to go to a Tuscany Vineyard. The driver booked the vineyard tour for us and it was incredible. I would highly recommend this tour. It is worth every single penny.

Leo was an amazing tour guide! This ended up being an entire day tour and we saw so much! He was very informative, and had a microphone so that even the people in the back seats could hear his descriptions. We saw some great shopping places, ate authentic meals and he also had us back at our ship right on time.
the agent is very knowledge, agenda just like description, I would recommend it

We wanted to go up the leaning tower so booked the private tour which gave us the time & flexibility to do so by pre-arranging with tour company. Our private tour guide Carlo was fantastic. Kids really enjoyed the tower & Florence was terrific.

Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable of the areas and we enjoyed our tour very much. Florence was just lovely and on our return to the ship we went through the countryside and it was absolutely stunning! We were very pleased with our driver and the entire day! Would recommend this tour.
