Florence Tours (Livorno)

1.  Pisa and Florence with Rome in Limo (from Kapitman) - sorry full!

Hi gang, 

I have just reserved an 8 passenger shore excursion for Livorno/Pisa/Florence. I have booked an 8 passenger for only two of us, so we have room for 6 more. If we get a total of 8 the cost will be 75 Euro per person. (Plus entry into Accademia to see David) Here is the site for the tour...it is the Pisa and Florence excursion. You can join the tour from the site. 

Choose port of Livorno - then Pisa and Florence

2.  Florence with Joe Banana (from Lisah101)

1-3 450€ "discounted price 420€" -  if 3 people, its either 150 E or 140 E if we book all 3 (Rome, Florence, Naples)
4-6 guests 500€ "discounted price 470€ if 6 pp, its either 83E or 78E if we book all 3
7-8 guests 550€ "discounted price 520€, if 8 pp, its either 69E or 65E if we book all 3 - thinking maybe we stick to no more than 8 people if interested?

Pick up time (suggested): 8.00am (according to your ship schedule)

We can customize this tour however we like, we just have to agree as a group!

As a group if we can figure what we want to see in Florence, give me 40 min to find a purse, good coffee and a gelato, then we can certainly do something in the countryside. I think that would be fantastic! I'm not really into Pointe Vecchio, but if someone else is, I understand.

Here is my list for Florence:
  • Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise (think this is near the Duomo) -
  • Academia (statue of David)
  • Leather goods
  • Basilica of Santa Croce - quick stop (burial place of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Foscolo, Gentile and Rossini) Really cool old church from 1295
  • Inside the Duomo
  • Ponte Vecchio
  • Photo stop in Pisa for the tower!
  • Winery tour (extra 10 euro per person for tour and tasting) www.fattoriamontecchio.com

4. Full Day Private Chianti - Pisa tour organized by Ballerine22
Full Day Private Chianti – Pisa Tour(duration 9 hours) price for 1 or 2 people 430 Euro and 35Euro for every other person you might wish to add to your group up to a maximum of 8 passengers total. The pickup will be at 8.00 a.m. right in front of the CARNIVAL SUNSHINE.
With this tour you will have the possibility to sightsee trough the splendid Chianti countryside dotted with beautiful vineyards and olive groves, quaint little, medieval villages and hamlets that are preserving still intact all the charm and beauty of the bygone days. Of course we won't miss the opportunity also to stop at a couple of my most preferred wineries for a private, guided visit of their cellars and to taste their great olive oil and wines and certainly I will not neglect to select a nice local “trattorie” where you will have the possibility to enjoy an authentic and genuine Tuscan lunch ! With regard to the wineries and places to visit I wish to reassure you that the places I normally visit are definitely off the beaten tracks of those horrible, big tour buses that usually “vomit out” hundreds of people wherever they stop. Finally, I’d like to point out that you will have my company for the whole day and I’ll do my very best to help you understand, and to learn as much as possible about wine in general and more specifically about the great Tuscan wines and the terrific extra virgin olive oil !
On the way back to the port we will do a little detour in order to stop in Pisa (about 30 – 40 minutes), in order to admire the world-wide famous LEANING TOWER !
The price for the tour includes: 1 luxury air conditioned van, English speaking driver / wine guide - sommelier , V.A.T. and highway tolls.
The price for the tour doesn't include: meals, gratuities and eventual tasting fees (usually 10 - 15 Euro per person, per winery).
Every extra hour costs 50 Euro.
The payment is intended CASH IN EURO, and can be made directly to me at the end of the tour.

With the sincere hope to having been of some help to you, I'm looking forward to read from you soon again,

All the best !

wine guide - sommelier
