Florence (Livorno) Florence & Pisa Tour Excursion Reviews

There is no shortage of amazing things to see in Florence—from the famous Duomo to the Uffizi Gallery—and adding Pisa to the mix you're sure to have a packed day.

We booked an independent tour and shared with others on the ship. It couldn't decide if it was a tour or just transportation, so didn't accomplish either well. Enjoyed Pisa and glad we beat the crowds so that we could get good pictures. Florence was crazy busy, but we got a good authentic lunch and shopped at a market. Read Less

Celia was informative regarding wines of the region. She acted as driver and guide combo. She spent the majority of time with her headset in and messing with her ipad in her lap as she drove. She stated she had a one hour lunch. After which she seemed very sleepy at the wheel. All other tours the guide took their break while we were touring sites or eating ourselves. We paid for 8-9 hours.... This was our second tour with this company. Both experiences were poor. Would NOT recommend this company. Read Less

Tour bus met us at the terminal forgthe drive to Pisa through the Tuscan countryside. Our guide Stefania was knowledgeable about the area and her pride in being a daughter of Tuscany was engaging. The stop in Pisa was worth the side trip if onky oncevin a lifetime. The square where the tower, cathedral and the baptisery are is stunning. It is unfortunate that very little of the old town has been preserved other than this square. The drive to Florence was a good interlude befire beginning the walking tour in this beautiful and magical city. We were enchanted by the historical area Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio, where we had time for a quick lunch and some shopping. The last stop on the tour wasthe square of Santa Croce. We are hoping to return to Florence for a more in depth visit to the Ufizzi Museum and other sites. Read Less

Florence is about 1.5 hour away from the port of Livorno. It is a busy city of Italy with a lot of old architectures, statue of David, Michael Angelo, etc. A lot of big name shops in there, and that means a lot of tourist and visitors. You have to spare a lot of time if you want to shop and may have to give up eating depending on much time you decide to stay in Florence. We also visit Pisa's leaning tower after leaving Florence. There aren't much to do in Pisa, the Leaning tower will sure make you take tons of photo, but not an attraction with tons to see, but a must go if you arriving the port of Livorno. Read Less

The trip to Florence and Pisa was on a bus with free time at each place. Florence was so crowded but the things to see were awesome. Not enough time to go into the buildings but the outsides were awesome. Pisa , ok, you need to see the tower which was awesome and again only time to see outside. Lots and lots of stalls outside for souvenirs and decent prices. My main complaint was time back. The last shuttle from ship to center Livorno was 6 pm. At 5:30 we were in a traffic jam in Pisa and after much complaining and worry from the 30 people on the bus they did take us right to ship. I felt this was a worry we didn't need on vacation Read Less

Full day tour of Florence and Pisa, did not see Livorno at all. Definitely get advance tickets to see Accademia for David, the walk-in lineups were very long. Our walking guide in Florence, Virginia from Italy Day Tours, was great and very informative. on our own time, we ate gelato (@ perche no), I Fratelli sandwich shops (3 euro sammies) and bought some leather souvenirs at the shop adjacent to it, all adjacent to Orsanemichelle Church. In time to meet our guides at La Rinescente in town. I would definitely come back to Florence on our own. Read Less
