Know More about this tour

Meet your private driver-guide as close as possible to your ship for the short drive to the 11th century powerful maritime republic of Pisa. Enjoy a driving tour of the city which will lead you to the heart of one of the most important monuments in Italy ... the breathtaking Piazza dei Miracoli with its Baptistry, Cathedral, Campo Santo cemetery and of course the Leaning Tower of Pisa. You are at leisure to explore some of the city on foot before meeting up with your driver for the journey to Florence, approaching the city through vineyards on the outskirts of the Chianti region and arriving into Piazzale Michelangelo which offers beautiful views across the Ponte Vecchio, Duomo and Giotto's Tower.

Once in the city centre discover the city's prominent landmarks without too much walking as your driver gives you historic and cultural background information. Visit the splendid Gothic church of Santa Croce with the tombs of famous artists and writers such as Michelangelo, Galileo and Dante as well as as its renowned leather school. Enjoy a stroll around the lively and colourful market of San Lorenzo where you will also find the Medici Chapels and the Loggia dei Mercanti. Discover splendid piazzas like Piazza del Duomo with the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Tower, Piazza della repubblica - a lively shopping area, beautiful Piazza della Signoria and the Palazzo Vecchio with a copy of Michelangelo's David. If you wish to visit the Accademia museum to see the real Michelangelo David we can pre-book your tickets (at around 16euro per person) so you won't have to waste any time standing in long lines. Wander past the huge Uffizi museum and across the Ponte Vecchio with its exquisite jewellery stores towards Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. Break for lunch (at your own expense) - your driver will make suggestions and point you in the right direction. You may be tempted to taste your way around the authentic central food market overflowing with cheeses, salami, proscuitto, bread, pasta, olive oil, wine. At around 15:30pm your minivan will be waiting for you to take you on the relaxing and comfortable journey back to your ship in the port of Livorno with arrival at around 1700.

    I must say, this was an excellent tour for my husband and I. Our tour guide was Alessandro, and he was absolutely delightful. He picked us up from the cruise terminal and had a sign with our name. The vehicle was a beautiful, clean Mercedes van. It was raining that day, but Alessandro provided umbrellas to make sure we stayed dry and comfortable. After our time in Pisa, we went to Florence where the tickets for the Uffizi Gallery and the Galleria dell'Accademia were waiting. The beauty was breathtaking. Alessandro was very informative, polite, and so charming and kind. He also took us to the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and Santa Croce Square. We also went to Michelangelo’s Square Lookout. Our pictures are beautiful and our memories will live with us forever. Thank you, Alessandro and Lucca Limo for making our day one that we will remember for years to come!

    We booked this tour for our family of 8 for a port stop in Livorno. From beginning to end, Luccalimo tours exceeded our expectation. We received an email confirmation immediately with an informational guide about Pisa and Florence and the company worked with us via email to develop a customized tour that fit our interests. They also helped us make advance reservations for entry to L'Accademia which was extremely helpful. We received a final confirmation the day before the tour with the name of our wonderful driver/guide, Roberto, and instructions on where to meet him. Roberto was on time and waiting for us when we got off the ship and had a car seat ready as per our request. He had incredible knowledge of Pisa and Florence which he shared with us in each area we visited. Roberto had a wealth of practical and helpful suggestions to make our visits to Pisa and Florence more efficient and economical. We took the suggestion of the company to enter Florence by driving through the mountains and Chianti vineyards which afforded lovely views of the Tuscan countryside (as opposed to just freeway views). Roberto would take us to each place we were interested in seeing and give us free time to explore on our own, while keeping in contact with us through text or WhatsApp, and he would be waiting for us at the agreed spot when we were ready to move on. Roberto had a wonderful recommendation for lunch as well. The best part was that Roberto shared some of his own personal olive oil pressed from his olive trees--a special souvenir to take home and remember our perfect day in Florence and Pisa! We really couldn't have asked for an easier or better experience.

    Our guide covered a large territory to allow us to get the most of the one port day in Florence. He even recommended a local place for lunch that was great.

    Alessandro was our guide for a full-day tour to Pisa and Florence. He was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The tour was wonderful and a true joy because of the quality of the guide. He was also punctual and very helpful with my dad and my aunt who are mobility-challenged. Our van was comfortable and clean and new. I highly recommend.

    This was an awesome tour and our guide was prepared with tickets for us to enter attractions/museums even if we were not. He also made recommendations for a lunch restaurant which turned out to be delicious. It was a very enjoyable day.

    Fantastic tour with Giovanni who was very knowledgeable and took us to see the main highlights of Pisa and Florence! His English is exceptional given that he used to live in the US. It felt like he was part of our group as we toured the cities together! Very friendly and easy-going, allowing us to do things at our own pace! Highly recommended!

    Recommend LuccaLimo without any hesitation. My family and I had a wonderful time touring Pisa and Florence. One day was not enough time to visit all of the historic sights, but our guide Valter, who spoke perfect English, did an awesome job to take us to as many places as possible and he provided historical context so that we were able to appreciate the places we visited. We booked a private tour which did not cost much more than a group tour, and boy, was it worth it. Thank you Valter.

    Mauro picked us up at the dock and we headed off for a great day. We first stopped in Pisa and saw the leaning tower, taking the usual pictures pretending to hold it up. We then traveled to Florence, making a quick stop at a small business that makes wine and olive oil. We got to see the equipment and process which was really cool. We bought a small bottle of their olive oil to bring home with us. We arrived in Florence and drove up to a high observation area that looks down over this amazing place! We spent the next couple of hours visiting the museum and the famous bridge along with doing a little shopping. Mauro was amazing and told us so many interesting things about the cities and country. This is a great way to get a lot in when you have only one day!
