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.

It is hard to find enough adjectives to describe how much our group of six enjoyed the experience with Love Amalfi Tours. Giavani was our driver and we too feel like we made a new friend. We took two tours and it was hard to say goodby to him after our second tour. He is warm, funny, smart, and very informative and creative in the ways he takes you on the excursion you sign up for. We all have travelled a lot and taken many different tours and all six of us agreed that this was the best experience we have ever had. We continue to talk about how much fun we had and how incredibly beautiful the places we went with Giavani were. We also had Lina as our guide for Pompeii and Herculean and she was vey informative and adeptly helped us get through the crowds at Pompeii while giving us a full understanding of the history there. Don't even look elsewhere for another tour company. There is no question that the way this company is run that it is the very best. We would use them again for all of our tour and transportation needs. We hope to return and must thank Giaviani for making our trip to the Amalfi Coast so very special and so much fun!

We spent a week at a Villa in Positano and booked two tours through Lovely Amalfi Tou poprs. Our driver was Giovanni. He was professional, pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. On our tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum we also booked a guide for each sight. Lina was our guide and clearly knew the history. We would not have known what we were looking at had we not had Lina guiding us. What is amazing about Lovely Amalfi Tours is that all the drivers and guides are employees. They do not use third party companies to manage their tours. I couldn't have been happier with this choice. I would use them again and would not hesitate recommending them to family and friends.

Our trip to Amalfi coast was made heavenly because of Lovely Amalfi Tours and Giovanni. The service provided was excellent and efficient. Customer service of Melania was fabulous. Gio made sure we saw every inch of Amalfi and his lunch suggestions were fabulous. My most favourite memory is Gio singing to beautiful classics driving along the beautiful coastline of Positano. Best experience ever!

Enrico was our wonderful guide who went out of his way to assure we enjoyed our day! He is very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful restaurant in Positano! Enrico is an exceptional guide with a pretty good singing voice too!

from Titusville

Our day visiting the towns along the Amalfi Coast with Gio was an experience never to be forgotten. Every place was beautiful and seeing them with Gio and listening to him singing happily as he drove us safely along the winding roads was a fabulous day. We feel like we have a new friend in Italy! Wish we could do it all over again tomorrow!

My wife and I selected Giovanni for a day trip around Naples, visiting Pompeii and Vesuvius. What a great day. Giovanni put together a really nice itinerary including lunch and wine tasting - but he was also really great fun to be with. We would strongly recommend him for your future tours.
