Pisa and its Leaning Tower

Did you know Pisa is the hometown of Galileo? In addition, the town is home to one of the most memorable Italian monuments, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Located in the Square of Miracles, this remarkable tower took almost 200 years to construct and is famed for it's notable lean (almost four degrees to be exact!). In addition to the leaning bell tower, the Square of Miracles is also home to the Pisa Cathedral, or Duomo di Pisa, and the Pisa Baptistery.

 

Despite how it looks, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is completely safe to climb as itsstructural integrity is monitored on a constant basis. In fact, so many visitors to Pisa are eager to check off climbing the tower from their bucket list, reserving a ticket is a challenge. But don’t worry - we take care of your skip the line Leaning Tower of Pisa tickets!

Florence - Michelangelo’s David Statue

After you’ve finished climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa, jump back into your private vehicle and head to the Cradle of the Renaissance (Florence), where your personal English-speaking tour guides awaits you. Quickly pause for lunch before heading to the first stop on this private walking tour - the Accademia Gallery. This gallery is home to one of the most famous statues in the world, Michelangelo's David.

 

Michelangelo was the only artist in Florence able to work with this huge block of marble, and he turned it into his masterpiece. Behind the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia is the most visited museum in Florence. Luckily for you, we buy your skip the line tickets ahead of time so you don’t have to stand any long lines. Tickets are included in the tour price.

Brunelleschi’s Duomo and The Gates of Paradise

The iconic Duomo is Florence's most recognized landmark. Towering over the city, Filippo Brunelleschi’s dome is a Renaissance treasure. From outside the Duomo cathedral, learn about the amazing piece of architecture as your guide explains its history. A few steps away you’ll see the renowned bronze Baptistry Doors which have been praised by generations of artists and art historians for their compelling portrayal of scenes from the Old Testament. These famous doors are not to be missed!

Piazza della Signoria

Filled with statues, fountains and beautiful architecture, the Piazza della Signoria is more of an outdoor art gallery rather than just a piazza. Florence’s city hall, the Palazzo Vecchio, is the square’s most prominent feature. Although you won’t enter the Palazzo Vecchio on this tour, walk through the beautiful exterior corridors of the Uffizi Museum and learn about the deep influence that the Medici Family had on the city of Florence.

The Uffizi Gallery

Filled with artwork from the most renowned Italian Renaissance artists, The Uffizi is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Florence. But with over a million visitors every year - during the high season, waiting times can last as long as five hours! This private Florence walking tour includes skip the line Uffizi tickets so you don't have to spend your trip to Florence waiting in a queue. Led by your own personal guide, witness the renown works of art by the likes of Michelangelo, Leonardo, Caravaggio and Botticelli

The Oldest Bridge in Florence

Ponte Vecchio literally means “Old Bridge” in Italian. Since the 13th century, built-in shops have lined this medieval bridge. While there are now mostly jewelers on the bridge, originally there were many types of shops, including fishmongers, butchers and tanners. This all changed in 1593, when Ferdinand I proclaimed that only jewelers were allowed to set up shop on the bridge. These days, the bridge is also a popular spot for musicians and other entertainer to set up.

Arrivederci!

After a full day of sightseeing in Pisa and Florence, take the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic ride back to the port of Livorno. And since we handle all the details, we'll make sure you're back in time to set sail and get to the next incredible destination on your cruise itinerary.
