What to Expect
Your expert and knowledgeable guide will meet you at Livorno Port, and from there you will leave for Pisa. Upon arrival in Pisa, your first visit will be to the cathedral complex. The basilica is one of the largest churches in Italy, and until the modern era its dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed.
Your first visit upon arriving in Florence will be at Piazzale Michelangelo, which portrays the glorious panorama of the city. The Galleria dell' Academia is one of the top museums in Florence, and home to Michelangelo's David. The statue of David ranks amongst the top masterpieces of Italian Art. Reservations for your viewing of this statue will be booked by us in advance.
After visiting the Academy, you will stroll to the famous Duomo of St. Maria del Fiore. Its arched roof is one of the world's largest unsupported structures. You will see Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery and the Piazza della Signoria, before continuing to the enormous Piazza di Santa Croce. At the eastern boundary of the square is the famous Chiesa di Santa Croce, where frescoes painted by Giotto decorate the interiors.

Finally, enjoy the relaxing drive across the Tuscan region on your return to Livorno.
