Enjoy the private shore excursion “Best Florence tour” starting directly from your ship in Livorno. Our trained driver will pick you up in a luxury vehicle and take you to visit the very best highlights of Florence. Your visit will start from Michelangelo Square, a beautiful terrace overlooking the city center from where you can enjoy one of the best view of Florence. Here you will have also the chance to see the two copies of the famous statue of David. Nearby you will stop to see the white and green marble façade of the San Miniato al Monte church – one of the purest examples of the Florentine Romanesque style. Leaving the church, following an uphill road bordered by the ancient city walls, you reach Forte Belvedere, built around 1590 by the Grand-Duke Ferdinand to protect the Medici Villas. Driving down from the Fort, passing the old gate of Costa San Giorgio, you will arrive in Santa Croce Square to visit the Santa Croce church, where many famous Italians (Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli) are buried (If you are interested in the Accademia Gallery and/or the Uffizi Gallery, please ask us in advance when you book, so we can provide you the skip the line tickets in order to avoid waiting in lines and maximize your time). Last but not least you will admire the imposing Pitti Palace, which was formerly the residence of the grand-dukes of Tuscany and later of the king of Italy. Today Palazzo Pitti houses many galleries and museums (Gallery of Modern Art, Costume Gallery, Palatine Gallery, Royal Apartments, Silver and Porcelain museums, etc) and a magnificent park called the Boboli Gardens. On the way back to the port, you will be driven through the rolling Chianti hills, lush with vineyards and olive orchards. If you like, we’ll stop at a winery so you can taste a bit of the charming Chianti!
