Filippo picked us up at Livorno where our cruiseship was docked and first drove us to Pisa. There was 4 of us and we rode in a van. It was clean and comfortable and Filippo had a headset with microphone so that all us could hear him clearly while he drove. After Pisa we went to Florence.
We first went to Piazza Michelangelo, which has a beautiful overlook of Florence. On the way you pass by beautiful villas. He then drove us into Florence, and took us to all the important sites. He also reserved a time for us for the Academia gallery to see the David. We took our time in the museum and afterwards we had lunch at Osteria del Porcellino, which Filippo had recommended to us. We had Ribollita which is a Florentine soup and of course pasta!
After lunch, he showed us where the Duomo was and the surronding area that we could explore on our own. It was a great day and Filippo was professional, friendly and was totaly flexible. We returned to our ship on time as well.
With Livorno being so far from Florence and having only one day to see it, I think having a driver tour guide was well worth it in order to maximize our time. We didn't have to worry about finding our way or stand in any lines and he knew how long it would take to get back to the cruise ship.
Thank you Filippo!
