Get the most out of Florence. A Day Trip


A perfect way to see and learn about Florence in one day. Learn about this great city & its history, with me, as we walk through the main squares of the city.
Meet your private English speaking driver at the port and he'll drive you to Pisa for a brief visit on your own of the leaning tower and Cathedral.
The drive to Florence is approx 1 hour and I will meet you in the magnificent square overlooking the city, Piazzale Michelangelo.
From here we'll drive down the hill through the tiny backstreets out onto the river & into the city.

We'll visit the Accademia gallery & see Michelangelo's David (closed on Mondays). After, on foot the main sites & monuments of Florence.
There will be time for a light lunch or if you wish you can take a longer break in one of the great restaurants in town. I can suggest a few.
Meeting time to return to the port is around 3 pm.

This is a customized tour so we can plan it together. Pisa can be substituted with Lucca. The Accademia gallery, with Santa Croce church for example.

Itinerary

You'll be met at the cruise ship by your driver, Gianni, who speaks excellent English. He will escort you in his air-conditioned minivan to Florence, stopping on the way in either Pisa or Lucca (both cities are 30 mins from the port).
The journey to Florence from there is approx 1 hour.
I will be waiting for you in Piazzale Michelangelo, a square which overlooks the city of Florence.
Then we'll go down into the city taking the more scenic route through the little streets, past the remains of the original medieval wall. The river with its bridges and the famous Old bridge. Past Santa Croce church and on to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's David. From here walk with me to the principal sites of the city: Cathedral square, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Repubblica.
There will be time for a light lunch or if you wish you can take a longer break in one of the great restaurants in town. I can suggest a few.

Meeting time to return to the port is around 3 pm.
The tour is customized & can be personalized.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our group of four had a wonderful time with Catherine. We had so much to see in a day and she managed to accomplish so much. She has such tremendous knowledge about Florence, the art and the history. We were so in awe of The David, so much more impressive in person. We managed to work in a visit to Piza as well, which was very important to one member of our group. A couple of us also wanted to shop for leather, before lunch and our inner city tour. She found the perfect place!
