9 HRS – LUCCA & FLORENCE TOUR
One of our English speaking drivers will meet you at the gangway of your port in Livorno with the vehicle requested to begin the drive towards Lucca and then to Florence. Lucca, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy (not known by many). Like most cities in Italy it still shows Roman roots and style. Lucca’s defensive walls are perfectly preserved and once you’ve entered you’ll feel that you’ve returned to the past. Lucca is a city that MUST be seen and visit with it’s many characteristic shops and restaurants. After our visit of Lucca we’ll head back to the ship to arrive around 5-5.30 pm.
After the visit of Lucca we can start our drive toward Florence.
Florence has Etruscan-Roman origins and flourished during the Middle Ages as a free community. It became furtherly refined by the Renaissance Art and became enriched by the Medici family ruling and soon became the cradle of the Italian language.
The city is located on both banks of the Arno river and surrounded by the Appenine hills. Among the most famous, Florence is the home of Dante, Machiavelli, Michelangelo and the Medici Family.
As we approach the city, we will stop for a beautiful view of Florence from Piazzale Michelangelo from where you will admire the tile roofs, steeples and domes.
We will then begin our descent into the central downtown area of Florence to visit the Academy (the “David” and other masterpieces), the Duomo, the Baptistry, Giotto’s bell tower and Piazza della Signoria. We will proceed either on foot (we’ll be in the downtown walking area) to visit the other important monuments and the shopping areas.
For those who love art and painting we can also plan to visit the Uffizi gallery that home paintings of Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci, etc. in 44 rooms full of spectacular works of art.
Your driver will take you to a local trattoria where you can enjoy a traditional Italian meal, pizza or salad.
