Explore Historic Pisa
Upon picking you up from the La Spezia dock, our driver who may also double as your guide will take you on a 60 minute drive to the city of Pisa. Pisa is one of the most popular Tuscan cities in the world and is almost, if not just as popular as the Coliseum.
The origins of the city isn’t known as various groups have been suggested as the city’s founders –Ligurians, Etruscans, Greeks and the Pelasgi. Interestingly, a 1991 excavation of the Arena Garibaldi exposed an Etruscan necropolis (so maybe they founded the city).
One thing is clear, the city was very well exposed to incredible building technology as evidenced from the majestic architecture visible around the city.
Your first stop will be at the designated parking area from where you’ll proceed to the Field of Miracles where you can take lots of photos. Walking to and from the parking area is about 3 minutes each way. While in Pisa, you’ll get to see its most famous attractions like the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Torre Pendente di Pisa), the DUOMO CATHEDRAL, CAMPO SANTO, THE unusually round BAPTISTERY, and PIAZZA DEI CAVALIERI. Interested visitors who have already pre-booked, will have the opportunity to make the 30 minute climb to the top of the tower (note: some people find being in the tower a bit unsettling).
Experience Florence, the Cradle of Renaissance
After this, the driver and guide will then take you to Florence. The 1hr 20mins drive involves seeing the rolling and picturesque Tuscan countryside.
Your first stop at Florence will be the Michelangelo square which provides truly amazing views of the city. Make sure your phones and cameras are fully charged as you would want to shoot videos and take pictures here. After this, the guide will drive you downtown to the historical parts of Florence, whilst providing commentary about each place.
When you get there, you can go explore the area individually or in groups. Highlights of this area include by checking out the Brunellesci Dome, the San Lorenzo Market (one of the world’s most popular leather market), Santa Croce Square (you’ll find the gothic basilica where Machiavelli, Galileo and Michelangelo are buried alongside other Italian monarchs), Pizza Della Signoria, Palazzo Dei Pitti, Ponte Vecchio and the Accademia Museum. Please note that the Accademia Museum and Uffizi Gallery (tickets are not included in tour price) is often closed on Mondays, so you might wanto to schedule your trip for another day on the week if this is a must-do tour.
There’s a wide array of museums, churches and exquisite restaurants to check out and eat in if you like (cost of lunch is not included in tour price). Explore the city’s hidden gems, walking the alleyways and taking in the rich history of Florence.
You’ll have until 3:45pm to explore the city. Guests are expected back at the convergence point by 3.45pm. Once everyone is back, the driver will then take you back to the La Spezia dock.
