Those who are just passing through Tuscany and are looking for
a shore excursion to Florence and Pisa from the ports of the
region can find a proposal here but for other ideas or
itineraries, they can contact me directly. The shore excursion
to Florence and Pisa is an opportunity for those who are on a
cruise and want to visit the two cities independently, in
complete relaxation: they must get off the ship and be
accompanied throughout the day by a professional driver and by
an expert guide.
The shore excursion to Florence and Pisa usually includes a car available all day with a professional driver, a guided tour of Florence conducted by a qualified guide and a stop in Pisa to admire the Piazza dei Miracoli always accompanied by the tour guide. You will spend a day in complete relaxation, without having to worry about timetables, appointments, just you and your family or friends. The shore excursion to Florence and Pisa is, in fact, a service for small groups, private and exclusive. VIP treatment.
If you choose to take a shore excursion with me to Florence and Pisa, you will find my trusted driver at the port who will drive you directly to Florence with a car or minivan. I will wait for you in Florence and here I will lead you to discover the city.
Usually, we have a guided walking tour of the historic center lasting about 3 hours: we visit the historic center of Florence with particular attention to the religious center (Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower).
Then, we continue toward the medieval and the 19th-century districts, in the political center (Piazza della Signoria with the Palazzo Vecchio and the Piazzale degli Uffizi), we stroll on Ponte Vecchio. At the end of the tour, you will have free time to try the delicious Florentine cuisine or for shopping.
The shore excursion to Florence and Pisa will then continue
towards Pisa: our driver will drive us to Pisa where we will have
time to admire the Piazza del Miracoli with the wonderful
Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Monumental Cemetery and of course
the Leaning Tower. At the end of the day, the driver will drive
you back to the port at the time you set.
If you prefer, for example, to dedicate all day in Florence visiting also museums, you can think of a day to spend in Florence with your private tour guide. In this case, the shore excursion program in Florence and Pisa would be modified by eliminating the stop in Pisa and adding a visit to a museum in Florence or free time. There are various options: you can plan a visit to the city with a half-day guided tour and a visit to the Accademia Gallery or a visit to the city in the morning and the Uffizi Gallery in the afternoon before leaving for the port. There are many options to enjoy a day in complete relaxation during your cruise and a shore excursion to Florence and Pisa is perhaps the one that best suits your needs. I am available for information and quotes.
The advantages of a private shore excursion in Florence and Pisa are many: we decide the schedules together, you are not obliged to stay with a group of 50 strangers and you can take advantage of the time at your disposal as you prefer; the car drives you to the city center and you don't have to walk long distances to start the guided tour; usually guided tours for groups last less than half of a private guided tour, you don't even have time to understand where you are and it's already over; no one will take you to tourist shops or restaurants but, on request, the guide can advise you; we can decide together how to organize the shore excursion to Florence and Pisa because there is nothing pre-established in advance.
Tuscany is not only an Italian region, it’s a place of the heart
