Enough cannot be said about Florence, birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and home to many of the greatest artists of the era, from Michelangelo to Leonardo da Vinci. From the famous Duomo to the Uffizi, there is much to see in this storied city.

Excellent day out an the beautiful city of Florence. We booked a tour through NCL which included a coach tour, a walking tour and free tome to spend.

A quick stop off in a leather working factory for a demonstration and then Once in Florence, we got a great walking tour.

Long journey to Florence which included a visit to a high-end leather factory.

It was the Easy Florence tour. It provides freedom to roam around the historic center of Florence, but the time allowed is short because of port of call time allotment. Our bus stopped at a leather manufacturer for a demonstration of the manufacturing process and shopping. That was a waste of time and took away from seeing Florence. The stop was nothing more than a tourist trap. There was no real lesson how leather is produced from cowhide. It was just a demo about making purses from previously tanned leather. The prices there were also very high. Avoid this one. Read Less

Knowing how to disembark and get with our tour was more complicated than I thought it would be for a sponsored excursion. The first stop was at a leather factory that was basically a sponsored shopping stop, they gave a 2 minute talk about leather and then had us spend 30min shopping. I would have much rather just had that time in Florence itself. Our tour guide was interesting and full of knowledge though so that part went well! Our main goal was to not have to figure out how to get to Florence from the port, so it worked for us. Read Less

This was a Florence on your own tour where all we got was a return bus transfer from Livorno to Florence. It was great! Well organized, comfortable, and on time! We were able to see the famous duomo and actually climb all the way to the top. Amazing view, highly recommend if you are able to do it! We also saw the main squares, the ponte vecchio, and ate at a delicious little restaurant "Alimentary Uffizi", which had a delicious meat and cheese platter. Florence might be my new favourite city! Can't wait to return! Read Less
