La Spezia Private Shore Excursion of Pisa and Florence

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your driver at the exit from La Spezia cruise port for morning departure, then relax on the drive to Florence in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. As you enter the historic center of the city, your driver shares a bit about Florence’s grand past and vibrant culture, then drive past city highlights, stopping at your leisure to explore the sights independently.

    See the Gothic Basilica di Santa Croce where Michelangelo, Galileo, and Dante are buried, and soak up the atmosphere on the Piazza del Duomo. Other favorite stops include the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto’s Tower, and the Piazza della Repubblica, and you have the option to visit the Accademia Gallery (own expense), which houses Michelangelo’s David, as well as a remarkable collection of Renaissance paintings.

    After a break for lunch, leave the city on the road to Pisa, an 11th-century port city with beautifully-preserved architecture. Learn about the city as you enjoy a driving tour of top Pisa landmarks, from the Piazza dei Miracoli to the Campo Santo cemetery and the famed leaning tower.

    Following the driving tour of Pisa, enjoy time on your own to keep exploring the city on foot, then meet back up with the driver for the return trip to La Spezia, where this full-day tour concludes.
