About
Head out on an independent shore excursion from the La Spezia port to the towns of Florence and Pisa, breathing in the magical atmosphere that only Tuscany can offer. Your private driver will take you first to the historic center of Florence, where you can explore and appreciate its artistic and cultural treasures at your leisure. Then head to Pisa to see the Field of Miracles and be enchanted by its world-famous landmark, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Prefer to see Florence and Pisa with a guide? Upgrade to include a guide in addition to the driver, and receive a skip-the-line ticket to either the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery or the Museum of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence!

What to expect
  • Begin your excursion with pickup from your cruise port in La Spezia, where you’ll meet your private driver and take off through the Tuscan countryside. Arrive first in Florence, driving up the Viale dei Colli toward Piazzale Michelangelo, a stunning terrace featuring panoramic views over the Arno Valley. From here, follow your own itinerary with the help of your personal driver. Take a scenic stroll through the Boboli Gardens or admire the art collection inside the Pitti Palace, once home to the powerful Medici family. Head to the Piazza del Duomo for an up-close look at the city’s most iconic architecture. Gaze up at the Duomo, the accompanying Baptistery and Giotto's Bell Tower (admission fees at own expense). Consider walking over to the Piazza della Repubblica next, another bustling hub of shops and cafés. Admire the triumphal arch, or pause for an Italian espresso to relax and refuel. Afterward, hop back in the car for the 40-minute ride to Pisa. Head to the Piazza dei Miracoli, home to the Cathedral, Baptistery and the renowned Leaning Tower of Pisa. Afterward, opt for a trip to Piazza dei Cavalieri to see the historic Scuola Normale, before concluding your trip with transportation back to La Spezia. To upgrade your ticket to include guided tours in each city and skip-the-line museum tickets, see the Itinerary section below. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the La Spezia port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded.

Franchesco was amazing
Jul 2019 • Family
We began out cruise with Franchesco as our private guide for Florence and Pisa.

He set the bar super high and our other 5 guides simply couldn't compare. Fabulous tidbits about the sights we were visiting as well as the ones we were passing on our drive.

Great tour and way less expensive than the Shore Excursion from the ship.

Very Efficient & Fun
Aug 2018
I truly enjoyed this excursion. Pickup was quick and right outside the cruise ship. Although it is a long ride to Florence, we were given explicit instructions on how to maximize our time, deal with going to the restroom and when to start heading back. You won't have time to enter into any landmarks but you can take a quick tour of the city and really benefit from the beautiful landmarks. We then rode to Pisa and this was definitely worth the trip. You have enough time to take great pictures and there's not much else to do. The tour guides made the long ride fun by raffling off prizes. My only complaint is that it is much cheaper to purchase the tickets there than from online.

Best driver/guide we had!
Oct 2018 • Friends
While our group loved all the sites we experienced during our tour the day we visited Florence, our driver made the day extraordinary. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, and knew the out of the way places to get the best coffee, home made gellato, and more. We had several tour days that week with other companies, but none of them equaled our day with Julien! Thank you Julien for make our trip amazing!!

Fantastic Experience!
Aug 2018 • Family
This was the best excursion we did on our week long Mediterranean cruise. Our driver and guide, Alessio, was there waiting for use as soon as we pulled into port. He was super knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The entire family, including my parents and two teenage kids loved his commentary, willingness to answer questions and suggestions for lunch, gelato and sightseeing in both Florence and Pisa. Highly recommend Alessio and Prestige Rent - perfect excursion for families who want a personalized experience. Thank you Alessio!

Fantastic day trip and great tour guide!
Jul 2018 • Family
Our ship docked in La Spezia, and we spent the day mostly in Florence with a quick stop in Pisa. Our tour guide Francesco was tremendous! He was very knowledgeable about the area having lived in Florence his whole life. Very friendly, got us to the most beautiful places in Florence. Since we had to return to the ship we didn't have much time, and he made sure we saw the best of the area. Highly recommend this company and tour guide! Thank you Francesco!

Sightseeing in Luxury
May 2018 • Couples
We took the tour of Florence and Pisa with our wonderful tour guide Leo. He was the most courteous and gracious tour guide we had out of all the tours we took on our vacation to the Western Mediterranean. Plus he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. We arrived in the port of La Spezia and Leo met us at the port with a beautiful coach type mini bus. It was perfect for our group of 6. We traveled to Florence with Leo giving commentary and answering questions as we went along. Florence was beautiful but the highlight was Leo’s suggestion that we go into the Tuscan countryside for lunch at a little farm/bed and breakfast that produced their own wine and we were served fresh pasta with asparagus which was excellent along with wine and other delicious local foods. After lunch, we were on to Pisa for a look at the leaning tower and most importantly we were back in plenty of time to meet the ship and be on our way. I would not hesitate to recommend Prestige rent or Leo again!
