Itinerary

Design an itinerary to explore at your own pace, but you may wish to visit:

Uffizi Gallery
Accademia Gallery
Florence's markets
The Piazza Santa Croce
Santa Croce Church
Piazza del Duomo and Giotto’s Bell Tower
Piazza della Signoria
Piazza della Republica

​You'll be met at the port of La Spezia by a Cruising Excursions representative who will guide you to your air conditioned transportation, ready to start the transfer to the City of Florence.

This excursion allows you to explore this beautiful city by yourself, enabling you to take in the many galleries, historical sites and numerous street markets. There's so much to see in Florence - here are just a few ideas:

  • Uffizi Gallery
  • Accademia Gallery (the famous statue of Michael Angelo's 'David' is in this Gallery)
  • Florence Markets offering an array of leather goods, souvenirs and local produce
  • Designer shops
  • The Piazza Santa Croce
  • Santa Croce Church
  • Piazza del Duomo and Giotto’s Bell Tower
  • Piazza della Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio)
  • Piazza della Republica
  • The elegant Ponte Vecchio (The Old Bridge)

Our guide/escort will be on hand to give you as much information and recommendations as you need.  They will be able to assist you with directions and show you the meeting point in Florence and also perhaps give you recommendations of restaurants and shops.

If you'd like to pre-book your tickets for the Uffizi or Accademia Gallery, we can do that for you. You'll be able to design your own itinerary in order to enjoy your day in the wonderful city of Florence.

The meeting point for your tour will be the parking area at La Spezia Port. The driver/escort will then explain the meeting point and time for your return journey back to the port.

Note: Most of the religious communities require ladies to cover their shoulders and knees as a sign of respect when entering religious sites, such as cathedrals and churches. Please ensure shoulders and knees are covered if the tour has the opportunity to enter the Duomo. As coaches are not allowed into the centre of Florence, there will be a 20-minute walk to the coach park at the end of the tour. Additionally, this tour involves a lot of walking on steep, uneven ground and is NOT suitable for guests with walking difficulties or clients in wheelchairs.
