Florence (Livorno) Firenze Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

Embark on a walking tour through Firenze to enjoy its plethora of artistic masterpieces, breathtaking architecture and scenic views to get the most out of your time spent in Florence's port.

A lot of people were trying to squeeze in both Pisa and Florence on this stop. We just decided to head to Florence. We booked the NCL bus to the train station (small charge, but I can't recall now), and it was easy get the train into Florence. We met our walking tour guide (organised independently), and had a fantastic walking tour around Florence. The guided walk only cost 14 pounds each and was just brilliant. I would highly recommend this. It was easy then walk to the train station and then get the train back to Livorno where the NCL buses were waiting to take us back to the ship. Read Less

This was actually' Florence on your own' which we took as it looked to be the easiest option. Livorno port requires you to buy a ticket into town, then you need another bus to the railway station, and then you have to change to get to Florence! Bus dropped off near Santa Croce. Bit of selling as encouraged to meet near some leather retailer. Could use their toilets though! Had booked online a few days earlier for the Uffizi Gallery. So that worked out fine. Other sites are in compact area so a quick walk sees them all from outside. Read Less

We visited the Accademia Museum to see the statue of David. It is a long wait for 1 room. Then we had a pasta and turkey dinner. Delicious. We then went to the Uffizi Museum to see paintings. Spectacular. On the way we saw the Ponte Vecchio which was very crowded. Then we walked along the shore of the Arno river to the Uffizi Museum. After that we went to Santa Croce where we had free time. Read Less

Our Celebrity sponsored tour guide was Anna Lisa and she was excellent. We took the waling tour for 2 hours and then on our own for 3 hours. The walking tour showed us what we might want to go back to and we did go back for the Domo Basilica to tour it after having lunch on the San Lorenzo Square at Rist. Finisterrae -- again what else pizza and soda. The domo was built with no scaffolding which was incredible as it took over 400 steps to reach the top. We purchased leather purses form the outdoor shops that line the street near the square. We checked out the Leather School behind the Basilica but found prices high and not worth the trip back there. Oh for gelati near the Domo try Guma -- all natural ingredients and great. We took many pictures and enjoyed walking the streets. Read Less

Oh my goodness!! They need to change the description of this tour to let the tourist know that the 15 minute walk they talk about from the bus to the Leaning Tower of Pisa is a mile and a quarter one way. Then the walk from the bus to the shopping plaza in Florence is probably another mile one way. That's way too much walking for someone who needs a mild to moderate activity level tour. I would not have taken this tour if I'd known how much walking was involved. I reread my description when I got back to the ship and all it said was a 15 minute walk. That's deceptive. Read Less
