What can you do from a cruise ship arriving to the Port of Livorno, Tuscany?
Livorno is a large port city located on the western coast of Italy in the region of Tuscany. This beautiful coastline is known for its miles and miles of beaches with lots of wild, forested areas and canopy pines that end at the seashore. Arriving into Livorno Port, you have the possibility of going inland to reach some of the most important tourist destinations in Tuscany and Italy!
The town of Pisa is just thirty minutes away with its splendid Leaning Tower and portico covered streets. The charming medieval town of Lucca is just another 20 minutes beyond Pisa and offers a typical Tuscan feeling with beautiful churches and squares and a huge fortified wall that rings the entire town. Going further into the interior, about an hour and a half from the Port of Livorno, you will find Florence, the largest city in Tuscany and the heart of the Renaissance. It is brimming with art, history, and culture, as well as fun cooking classes and market walks.

Full day Florence and Pisa tour
The most requested tours we do from the Port of Livorno are the full day Florence shore excursion and one that combines both Florence and Pisa. These tours are sure to satisfy the desires of even the most diverse groups or families because there is something for everyone. Florence is the largest and most important city in the region of Tuscany and is the birthplace of the Renaissance, having given the world countless masters of art, architecture, and science and shaped our modern world. The cupola of the Duomo of Florence built by Brunelleschi in the 1400’s is a work of such mathematical and engineering genius that modern architects have not been able to recreate it. Florence is home to some of the world’s top museums including the Accademia with Michelangelo’s David and the Uffizi Gallery. If museums aren’t your thing, then why not enjoy the works of art and architecture on display in Florence’s piazzas, streets, and bridges? The historic city centre of Florence is flat and small making it the perfect place to enjoy on foot. You will be dazzled as you head across the Ponte Vecchio bridge full of historic gold stores, and then amazed by the Piazza della Signoria with the replica David statue and Loggia dei Lanzi statues, and finally awestruck by the famous golden doors of the Santa Maria del Fiore Baptistry and Giotto’s bell tower.
Florence also happens to be a foodie paradise, with fantastic small restaurants and gelateria shops to choose from and the wonderful San Lorenzo market, a bustling food market on the ground floor and tons of restaurants and even a cooking school on the upper floor. Make your tummy happy wandering the stalls and sampling prosciutto, pecorino, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and more, and then enjoy a casual lunch before continuing your sightseeing in Florence.
On your way back from Florence, we can provide a stop in Pisa to see the Leaning Tower and Piazza dei Miracoli or Miracle Square an architectural complex owned by the Catholic church featuring the main Pisa cathedral, baptistery, and monumental cemetery as well. During this shore excursion, there is literally something that will make every type of traveller happy!
Full day Bolgheri Super Tuscan wine tour
Wine lovers and those curious about food and wine will be happy to find out that Livorno Port is less than a one-hour drive from the Super Tuscan wine region in the countryside of Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci on the Tuscan coast. Enjoy views of the endless beaches and canopy pine forests as your private English-speaking driver with air-conditioned vehicle takes you south along the highway that follows the coast and the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. You will quickly reach the village of Bolgheri and its surrounding countryside lined with lush green vineyards. Here you can visit the very tiny town, home to just a few hundred people, but boasting some of the most famous wineries in Italy and incredible wines. Here international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot found the perfect climate and have been gaining fame since their “discovery” in 1974. Wines such as Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia, Tenuta di Ornellaia’s Ornellaia and Antinori’s Guado al Tasso are the cornerstones of this booming region. You will have a chance to visit a castle winery and enjoy a wine tasting of their Super Tuscan wine. Next, your driver will take you to the wonderful restaurant such as at Osteria Tenuta San Guido for a nice local meal or perhaps down to the seashore if you prefer to try local fish dishes. In the afternoon, you will head to a second winery, where you will be given a visit by the friendly winery staff and then try more Super Tuscan wines, perhaps some of the fresh local whites as well this time. In the afternoon, your driver will take you back to the Port of Livorno for departure. Be sure to leave room in your luggage for a few great bottles of Super Tuscan wine!
