SHORE EXCURSION: TOUR OF FLORENCE & FIESOLE: 9 Hours
Includes: Services of your private “driving guide,” private transportation, taxes, tolls and parking.
Optional: Special licensed local guide for museums and churches.
A private transfer will pick you up from Livorno; on the way to Florence city center you will stop
in Piazza Michelangelo for a panoramic view of Florence and the Arno Valley. Once in Florence,
you will explore the city’s highlights with your tour escort, including the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio,
the Santa Croce basilica, and Mercato Centrale, Florence’s go-to market for fresh food. Your
guide will accompany you to lunch or you can have lunch on your own.
You can also visit museums on your own, if you
like. The Accademia, home to Michelangelo’s
Statue of David, is one museum easy to do without
a museum guide. The Uffizi is another must-see
for art aficionados; however you may want a guide
to this vast museum, containing 45 rooms of art.
We’ll secure reservations for a formal tour of
any of Florence’s museums and churches by a licensed
guide if you are interested. Supplemental
The trip to ancient Fiesole, founded in the
9th century BC, is worth it for the view alone
it offers of Florence on a clear day. Fiesole’s
Etruscan roots are apparent in the remnants of
its ancient walls you can you explore. While
there are many sights to see here, it’s also
just a chance to relax and enjoy the peace and
quiet of this small hilltop town.
