Best of Pisa and Florence

The tour will begin after you meet your private driver who will be easily recognizable due to the sign on which will be written your name and our agency logo at Livorno port, where your cruise ship will be docked. After a brief presentation your private driver will accompany you at the luxurious vehicle where and will offer you every comfort you need. Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

Our first step is Pisa, an important city of the Tuscany region. Once a Roman Empire’s colony, then an important commercial port, the city of Pisa is better known for hosting one of the symbol of Italy abroad: “La torre pendente di Pisa” (The leaning tower of Pisa). Opened to the public in 1371, the pending structure was originally the bell tower of the Cathedral, today it is more famous than the original building thanks to its leaning-on-a-side characteristic, due to the not uniformal soil on which the tower stands. But don't worry it is not dangerous at all, you can even go up to the top.

The Leaning Tower is located in the so-called “Campo dei miracoli”, a wide plaza where you can find other sites too, such as the Cathedral, the cemetery and the baptistery. A magical place that definitely does worth a visit. Don’t miss the chance to take a traditional picture of you holding the tower, or get creative, don’t forget to show us your pictures.

After the marvelous city of Pisa we will go straight to Florence, undoubtedly one of the most important and famous italian city in italy and abroad.  

Our first stop here is an art gallery known as “L’Accademia”, one of the most famous museum in Italy along with the “Uffizi”. In “Accademia art gallery”, we will see hundreds of paintings and statues, one of the most famous the “David” by Michelangelo. An iconic e best known Italian statue. In the museum other amazing masterships such as the “Third Pietà and prisoners” by Michelangelo, and other artists’ art such as Giotto and Bernini. Inside you can even visit the “Museo della Musica”, a museum that keeps track of the history of the music and where you can visit the ancient musical instruments.

Out next destination is the giant “Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore”, huge cathedral with its gothic, neo-gothic and rinascimental architectural styles. Once the biggest church in the world, is today the third one in Europe. Situated in the centre of Florence, it is adorned with plays of the best artists, the cupola created by the famous Brunelleschi, Michelangelo and Donatello whose incredible plays and paintings decorates the churches halls, Giotto’s belfry, or the golden bronze doors by Ghiberti.

From here our next destination, “Piazza della Signoria” and “Loggia dei Lanzi”, where you can find the “Fountain of Neptune” and the “Perseo of Cellini”. After that a quick lunch, try the traditional tuscanian food in a nice restaurant or a quick street food like the schiacciata or the “lampredotto”.

Before finishing our nicest day tour one last visit: the “Ponte Vecchio” (Old Bridge) . A bridge, one of the symbol of the city long 95 meters and built in the 970. On the of the bridge shops and artisanal workshops, at the centre two panoramic balconies and a statue, tribute to Benvenuto Cellini, famous sculpting artist and goldsmith.

Traveling internationally can feel overwhelming. With a special destination like Italy, you hope everything goes perfectly. Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours helped make our travels to Italy wonderful experiences. (We booked with them in 2019 and 2022 and hope to again soon!). Transfers are on time, professional, safe and reliable. Tours are fun and interesting and the destinations are beautiful. Professional, knowledgeable drivers like Marco and Carlo allow you to relax and enjoy while they take care of the rest! After a 9 hour flight, we appreciated a reliable, comfortable transfer from the airport to our hotel in Florence. Lovely Amalfi Coast happily accommodated our request to stop in Montepulciano for lunch and wine. Two days later we took private Tuscany Coutryside tour with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours. Beautiful scenery with a friendly, knowledgeable driver with stops in Siena, San Gimignano and lunch and wine tasting. An experience that should not be missed! Thank you Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours team! We hope to visit again soon.

from WEST PALM BEACH

We had an amazing day with Stefano. It was our first time in Italy and we learned soo much from him. Ive always believe it is such a different experience when you have a private driver rather than being on a bus with 50 other people. We shopped and drank wine and had an amazing lunch at one of the Watch Towers along the Amalfi Coast. TRULY AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY!. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE!!!!

from Sydney

What can we say Vincenzo was the perfect host for the day, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and his passion for the Amalfi coast is so heart warming and infectious. Taking us to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, he was an amazing g guide for the whole trip. Recommending and taking us to Lunch, by boat, to “da Teresa” was definitely a highlight of the day. Would totally recommend Lovely Amalfi tours, and Vincenzo as your guide. Just a fantastic day, check it out @ziosime72 . Mille Grazie Vediamo fra pocco

from Taunton UK

What a fab day with Giovanni touring the Amalfi Coast. He was knowledgeable, funny, prompt and accommodating. We learnt about the history of his country and traditions of family life. Giovanni’s vocals accompanying Andrea Bocelli in the car was a bonus. Giovanni made the day for us and I can’t rate the tour highly enough. You won’t find a better guide to show you the highlights of this beautiful region. We plan to stay in touch.

from Vancouver, BC, Canada

The best private tour experience ever! I booked the Naples-Pompeii-Lunch in Positano-Amalfi Coast experience so that it’s easier to get from Naples to Amalfi with my two friends. Melania (admin) was very prompt in answering my questions and made it super easy to book the tour. Our tour guide, Giovanni, was really courteous, friendly, informative and passionate about history! We learned so much about Italian culture and even made friends outside of the tour, through Giovanni! Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide and entertaining car ride! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

from London

We went on a tour with Gio 6 years ago and have returned with our children to do some more of his tours! So informative and an amazing personality, takes the time to get to know his guests, could not recommend this more. We have been on the Private Amalfi Coast Tour, visiting Positano & Ravello today and had a great time. We are looking forward to our trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius next week. Hopefully the serenading continues!
