Your driver will meet you at your port of call, Livorno (Leghorn) and drive you to the city of Florence, (Firenze), taking about an hour.   Along the drive, your chauffeur will make sure that you are taken care of and answer all your questions that you may wish to ask.

 

 first stop - Piazzale Michelangelo, where you may admire an overall view of the town.  From here, we take a short trip, gently winding our way down the magnificent boulevade into the city, taking in the beautiful villas and greenery. 

When you arrive in the city of Florence, head first to Santa Croce Church, where Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Rossini are all buried.  Here is also the Leather School where you may see an artisan at work.  Then your driver will park in the Piazza del Duomo for you to survey the baptistry, Giotto's Tower and the superb cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the second largest church in the world,

You are now in the center of the walking area, only five minutes from the best shopping area of the town, the Piazza della Signoria, with Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Museums, the Porceliino and Ponte Vecchio, the famous 14th century covered bridge, home of Florence's gold shops!  Wander through the fashionable boutiques or sample a bit of Tuscan cuisine.

Remember that the driver is always at your total disposal to show you any place you wish - for example, the Accademia Gallery, home to the original statue of Michelangelo's David, or the huge Pitti Palace, a large, mainly Renaissance palace located on the south side of the Arno, a short distance from the Ponte Vecchio.
 

When you have seen enough of Florence we will then we will return to the port of Livorno.
