Description

This is a private tour through the beautiful Tuscan countryside and of Florence, the cradle of the renaissance.
 
The tour begins from your ship at the port of Livorno in the morning at 09:00 AM.  It is a 1.5 hour through the lovely Tuscan countryside and reach Florence.  
 
As an introduction to this Renaissance city you first stop at the Piazzale Michelangelo to enjoy the glorious panorama of the city.
 
Next you are brought down to the city centre where you have approximately  6 hours guided tour of Florence. You will visit the Cathedral complex in the heart of Florence which includes the gothic Duomo (the dome designed by Brunellesci is a real marvel), Giotto's bell tower and the Baptistery, with its bronze doors commonly referred to as the Gates of Paradise. 
 
Proceed to Piazza della Signoria to see a copy of Michelangelo's David in the outdoor setting for which it was originally designed.  
 
You'll also see the 14th-century Loggia, which houses several famous sculptures and the grand Palazzo Vecchio (Florence's most famous and imposing palazzo, once home to the reigning Medici family).
 
Your walking tour will continue to the famous Ponte Vecchio, built in 1220. This bridge crossing the Arno River is lined with shops that traditionally sell gold and silver. 
 
Your tour is far from over! Proceed to the 14th-century Santa Croce Church, which holds the tombs of great Florentines including Michelangelo, Machiavelli, the composer Rossini, as well as a memorial to Dante.  
 
Also, if you are interested in shopping for leather on your trip, Florence is the ideal city for it.  There are many quality leather shops near Santa Croce. 
 
In the later afternoon, to have you back at the ship in time we will depart at approximately 5:00 PM to head back to the port.

Client Testimonials

This company really knows their stuff and recommended our family to stay longer in each location. We didn't listen to them, but wished we had in every single place we went. They recommended Sestri Levante over the Cinque Terre which was our favourite destination on our entire trip. We visited Rome where we stayed in the outstanding Hotel Locorno where they know the owner there, like in every place we went. It made a difference in Italy when they knew who had arranged our trip, like they gave us special treatment or something.

We are planning on going back to Italy in 2020 and definitely having the IVS team organize everything!
