What you will visit:

Florence (4-hours on your own)
Florence is one of Italy's most artistically significant cities and arguably the seat of the Renaissance. Take to the streets and absorb the culture. Sample the Florentine cafes. View the stunning art and architecture of other remarkable highlights including the Uffizi Museum and Gallery, one the Western world's oldest and most famous museums, and Pitti Palace. Or visit the Duomo where, upon entering, you can look up to view the dome's interior, adorned with a fresco of the Last Supper and beautiful stained glass. In the Cathedral Museum you'll see The Deposition, a famous pieta, created by Michelangelo at the age of 80. The face of Nicodemus in this pieta is widely considered to be a self-portrait of Michelangelo himself. Other can't miss attractions include the Piazza Della Signoria as well the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge and the St. Croce Square and Church - the final resting place of such notables as Galileo, Machiavelli and Michelangelo.

Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) (1-hour on your own)
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) is home of the famed Leaning Tower, which is actually the cathedral's bell tower, as well the duomo, the baptistery, the monumental cemetery and museums. Many people ask why it leans and what its original purpose was. The tower was meant to be the bell tower for the cathedral, but due to its faulty design and loose soil beneath it, it never fulfilled its purpose. The Leaning Tower of Pisa really is leaning! On the side where the tower is higher, it stands at 187.27 feet, and on the low side it stands at 186 feet.

What you will see along the way:
A relaxing ride through the countryside brings you to Pisa, one of Tuscany's most beautiful cities and the Leaning Tower. It is 90-minutes from Florence to Livorno on your return ride.

Lunch:
Enjoy lunch on your own at one of the may splendid dining establishments in Florence. Be sure to follow-up your meal with a refreshing gelato. You'll need Euros to pay for lunch, shopping and entry fees throughout your day. You can exchange currency onboard ship or at a local currency exchange.

The drive between Livorno and Florence is approximately 1.5 hours each way, subject to traffic conditions.
