Full description
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 in advance (you must however, book the tour at least 30 days prior to gaurantee reservation).

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. Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Rossini and Galileo are all interred in this church.

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

Important information
Know before you go
• Please dress respectfully for visiting religious monuments; local custom requires covering knees and shoulder. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
• All tours can be personalized and/or combined on request.

One of the most wonderful trips

We booked our excursion with best Limousine in Rome and it was the best thing that we’ve ever done. David was our guide who was very informative, helpful and punctual; he did everything he could to suit us within our timed schedule and took us to so many places more than what we expected. We highly recommend him and sure would get his services if we get a chance with no hesitation.
