Itinerary

Pick up from La Spezia Port

The transfer time from La Spezia is approximately 2.5 hours to 3 hours to Florence (Depending on traffic)

Arrive into Florence to experience a breathtaking walking tour with 1 hours free time

Depart from Florence to head back to La Spezia port

​You'll be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your

air-conditioned transportation, ready to start your tour.

Our driver then takes us through the beautiful Tuscan countryside (approximately 2 hours) to the fascinating city of Florence. Built on both sides of the Arno River, Florence has had a significant impact not only on the culture of Italy, but on that of Europe as well. We drive up the Viale dei Colli to the amazing terrace of Piazzale Michelangelo. Here you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city, whilst our guide tells us about some of the churches, palaces and bridges we can see from our vantage point. Heading into Florence’s city centre we’ll see sights including:

The Piazza Santa Croce

Santa Croce Church

Piazza del Duomo and Giotto’s Bell Tower

Piazza della Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio)

Piazza della Republica

The elegant Ponte Vecchio (The Old Bridge)

There'll be free time to explore the narrow streets full of shops, café bars and trattorias – or to simply relax and admire the beautiful views across the river.

We recommend wearing comfortable shoes on this tour as there will be a lot of walking involved. After a fascinating day discovering and exploring this corner of Tuscany, we return to La Spezia in plenty of time to join your cruise ship.
