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. 

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.

from Los Angeles

We just finished our day tour of Positano, Sorrento & Pompeii. Giovanni was our driver & we feel so lucky to have had him! He was incredible and super friendly. Gió shared so much information about the region & his own personal experiences and recommendations of each place. You could tell that he was a proud Napolitano and we had so much fun! The Amalfi coast is so beautiful & although it is currently winter, there was something truly special about being one of the only tourists walking through Positano. It felt like we had the whole town to ourselves. We won't forget it! Grazie mille Giovanni!

from Boston

We booked a private car tour from Positano to Sorrento - but we got so much more! Vincenzo picked us up right on time from our hotel in Positano - and he was delightful! Not only did he drive us to Sorrento, he told us great stories of the areas as we drove through them. He stopped at all the best look out points so we could get the best views/photos of the Amalfi coast. He took the time to ask us what we were interested in seeing and doing in Sorrento so that he could customize the tour to what we wanted. It was perfect!! He dropped us in the city center for 2 hours so that we could shop and sightsee... and even made great recommendations for restaurants - and where to get the best Limoncello. We had a lovely day in Sorrento and it was all thanks to Vincenzo!

from Cincinnati US

By far the best full-day tour we had during our 2017 Mediterranean Cruise. Sal picked us up very punctually from the Port of Napoli and the fun began from there. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Sal was very informative and entertained our group throughout the day. Pickups at Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Sorrento were all right on time and seamless. Highly recommended!!

from Montreal

We booked day tour with Enrico for 2 in May 2017 and he was the highlight of our 3 week Italy trip! He picked us up at our hotel and wanted to start the day off with coffee so he took us to his favorite coffee bar for cappuccino and Neapolitan pastries. They had the best sfogliatella! Then we continued on our way to the Amalfi Coast, stopping in Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi. He knew the best places to stop and take pictures and even bought us lemon sorbet twice! He pointed out important places in the history of Naples and would talk about each town before stopping to let us stroll through on our own for an hour or so. He also took us the to most amazing seaside lunch place that's only accessible by boat! It was a perfect way to end our vacation. I will definitely be back to take another day trip with Enrico! Grazie Mille Enrico for an unforgettable day in paradise! Oh, and he has the best pizza place recommendations! You must go visit his suggestions!

from New York

Amalfi was our fourth stop after Rome, Firenze and Cinque Terre and we had been on many tours in those cities; but I would say the Amalfi Coast private day tour by Lovely Amalfi Tours was by far the best one! Thanks to our excellent guide Giovanni! ☺️He was an absolute pleasure to travel with-we were one couple with a friend of ours and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest! Giovanni was helpful, vivacious, always ready to take pictures, fill us in on the beauty and history of the gorgeous Amalfi coast, great music selection and just the right spots to visit! I'd 100% recommend this tour with Giovanni to anyone who is planning to tour the Amalfi coast in one day anytime soon

from DENTON

We had a wonderful time with Enrico, Giovanni and Lina on our tours of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Amalfi Coast and we highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours! We not only learned a lot but we also consider our 3 guides as our friends and we hope they will contact us if they ever visit the US. Happy Holidays to everyone at Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours!

from CYPRESS

We visited the Amalfi Coast with our guide Enrico in early Oct. 2017. Enrico showed such a passion he has for the Amalfi Coast, He was fun, talkative, and Informative about the area of the world he lives. He knew the best spots for photos, and recommended the most beautiful spot for a lunch I have ever seen. Thanks to Enrico for providing us such an amazing start to our vacation. Will request him again when we return to that most beautiful part of the world.
