The meeting point of the Florence tours from Livorno is the Livorno port, where you will meet your guide and you'll be ready to start this adventure: destination ... Florence!
- Once in Florence from Livorno, you will drive along the romantic Viale dei Colli, a road system built in the second half of the 19th century by the Tuscan architect Giuseppe Poggi. The Avenue - even today considered a model in the history of the development of Italian cities - offers a breath-taking view of Florence and the surrounding landscape.
Continuing with the Florence tours from Livorno, we will drive up to one of the main landmarks of Florence, Piazzale Michelangelo, where you will make your first stop. Also made by Giuseppe Poggi in 1869, it stands on a hill just south of the old town and is one of the most famous vantage points of the city skyline. Leaning out to this beautiful balcony, you can admire the Arno River and the city of Florence in all its glory.
From here you can also admire the Abbey of San Miniato al Monte, a splendid Romanesque cathedral built between the 11th and 13th centuries, characterized by green and white marble on the outside and inside by three naves with a beautiful marble floor. Behind the 'Chapel of the Crucifix' is the crypt, decorated with frescoes by Taddeo Gaddi. The monumental burial chamber houses the remains of many famous people such as, for example, the author of 'Pinocchio' Carlo Lorenzini, known by all under the name of Collodi.
- The Florence tours from Livorno continue through the streets of the Old Town – a listed UNESCO World Heritage site since 1982 - where the most important monuments of the city are located. An interesting guided tour (on the outside),will introduce you to the famous Cathedral Complex, consisting of the Cathedral with its majestic dome by Brunelleschi, the Giotto Bell Tower, considered the most beautiful in Italy, and the Baptistery of St. John, built on an octagonal base.
- A short walk through the heart of the city will take you to two the most important museums in Florence, the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery, which you can access by skip the line (optional entrance).
The Uffizi Gallery, known and appreciated all over the world, is home to masterpieces such as 'The Spring' by Botticelli, 'Venus of Urbino' by Titian, 'The Annunciation' by Leonardo da Vinci and other valuable works of the likes of Bellini, Giotto, Mantegna and Gentile da Fabriano.
It is worth mentioning also 'The Cabinet of Drawings and Prints', one of the most important graphic exhibitions in the world. The collection, started by Cardinal de 'Medici in the mid-17th century, has been expanded over the centuries and today has more than 150,000 pieces.
The Accademia Gallery, second only to the Uffizi numbers of visitors, contains the largest collection in the world of sculptures by Michelangelo: besides the famous' David ', one can also admire 'The Prisons', the 'Pietà of Palestrina' and 'San Matteo'.
The museum also hosts some musical instruments that belonged to Stradivari, Cristofori and other famous musicians, as well as numerous religious-themed paintings made by great Florentine painters, valuable gold-ground paintings and a number of valuable Russian icons.
