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 Clermont

My husband booked a tour of Positano, Sorrento, & Pompeii with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours after finding them on Trip Advisor. This was our first tour on a week long cruise, so we weren't sure what to expect. Our drivers were Giovanni and Gaetano, who were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and made our day truly special. It was a national holiday the day we went and Giovanni and Gaetano arranged the day so we never got stuck in traffic. It seemed that every location we went to was not crowded when we arrived, but was very crowded when we were leaving. This made our day and experience, all more enjoyable. One example, they arranged for us to have lunch at a nice location in Sorrento. Our table was all set when we arrived and we were treated like royalty. They stopped along the way to allow us to take photos of scenic routes and recommended a great place to buy limoncello. I would highly recommend this company as this was the best part of our trip. It made us want to return to the Amalfi Coast one day.

from Des Moines

Had a fabulous day with Giovanni as our driver/guide. Promptly picked us up at Naples train station and provided an informative day with us..never a dull moment and he new all the great spots to see.in the Amalfi area including Pompei. Took us to a fabulous place in Sorrento for lunch and was very accommodating in every way. There were 6 of us and the van was very comfortable for everyone. Once our full day was done he had us back to the Naples train station and made sure everything was all ok for our return trip to Rome. "Gio" is quite the character and would highly recommend him and this fine company for their tour. It is one of a kind and a great value. This was our 1st tour when we arrived in Italy and what a great way to start out our vacation!!!

from West Seneca, New York

An amazing tour with a fabulous guide! Giovani showed us Ravello, Amalfi and Positano. They made the initial inquiries; the booking and the actual tour so easy! They were delightful to work with. We hope we get to book another tour with them someday. Giovanni was amazing!!!

from Tinley Park

From start to finish our wonderful day touring the Amalfi coast with Giovanni as our guide and driver was fantastic. Arranging the tour was easy to do on the website and Melania emailed us promptly with answers to all of our questions. Despite the rainy weather, Giovanni's sunny disposition and gracious hospitality made the tour a very memorable and enjoyable day for us. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Italy to book a day with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and to ask for Giovanni!!

from Murray

The Amalfi Coast is a MUST SEE for anyone visiting Italy - and the tour through Lovely Amalfi Tours is a great way to see it! Be sure to request Giovanni as your driver, he has us laughing the whole tour. Another quick tip for this tour, be sure to ask to stop for lunch at the restaurant "Da Costantino" outside of Positano. The food and the view from this restaurant completely enhanced this tour. The Amalfi Coast tour was worth every penny!
