Florence and Pisa Shore Excursion from Livorno
From Pisa then head to Florence, about 1 hour drive; stop first at Piazzale Michelangelo, a top hill panoramic terrace, then to the city center to see the highlights: Duomo, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Paklazzo Pitti etc. A visit at Uffizi and Accademia can be added and the driver can book the tickets (16 euros p.p.). You will stay about 3-4 hours in Florence.
On the way back to the port we can detour in the countryside to visit an estate and taste some local produce like wine, olive oil, salami, cheese etc; the visit is lead by a local guide in English and lasts 1 hour. The drive from the estate to the port will be 45 minutes or an hour from Florence if we go directly to the port.

Our driver was at the pier with our name on a placard and was on time when we came out from the ship,the car was a nice Mercedes,very comfortable.We went straight to the leaning tower of Pisa and took lots of photos and he was very good in telling us the history of the area,we were there for about forty five minutes to an hour exploring the cathedrals and so on,when by the time we finished about 10 bus loads of tourists arrived.WE were gone and the next stop was Florence ,he took us on a walking tour at a casual pace no hurry what so ever,we walked through the town and did a bit of shopping he gave a good history lesson on the area,it was great in a way knowing what you were looking at,and took visual in your mind that you were looking at buildings that were thousands of years old.After that we went on a scenic drive and stopped for lunch in a big square and took more photos.I recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Livorno.
This excursion was for 8 hours on a nine-passenger van. Highly recommend if you are group of eight. Our tour guide was punctual, first took us to Livorno to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. If you have time, go up the tower but you won't have time to to that on this excursion, as we still had to go to Florence. Our guide, Simone was awesome she speaks good English! She drove us through the countryside on our way to Florence, and that was really good as the views were amazing! Florence was for shopping, but if shopping is not on your list, you can ask the tour guide to personalize your tour e.g., winery/wine tasting as it was pre-offered to us, but we didn't do it.
Our driver Leonardo was a professional and very knowledgeable.
