Private Tour from Marina di Carrara to Pisa and Florence
Our driver will pick up you and your group directly from the cruise port of Marina di Carrara with our comfortable minivan. We’ll wait for you just outside the Terminal Cruise. We start our Pisa, Florence and Uffizi Museum or Academy (David) – Private Tour from Marina di Carrara in direction of Pisa.
Main attractions in Pisa
We will stop at Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracle Square), where you will have time for pictures. This is the one of the most photographed squares in Italy because of the oustanding Leaning Tower (Torre di Pisa). Visitors usually have fun when taking pictures here and they pretend to support the tower from falling down. Today the tower leans at almost 4 degrees. Restoration works were done to stabilise it. But the Leaning Tower is part of a more important architectural complex in this square. Indeed, you will find here the Duomo and the Baptistry as well. The name Field of Miracles comes from the words of the famous poet Gabriele D’Annuzio after flying over the city. After that, we will drive to another beautiful square, Piazza Dei Cavalieri, with its stunning facade designed by Vasari. On our way, you will also see the picturesque Lungarno, the main street along the river Arno with its historic buildings and many shops.
Exclusive Experience in Florence on our Private Tour from Marina di Carrara
After Pisa, we will drive in direction of Florence. It will take approximatly 1 hour and 20 minutes and during the trip you can admire the typcal Tuscan countryside. Once we get closer to the city, we will drive up to the hills and pass in front of the old gate to the city, Porta Romana. You will also appreciate the view over Palazzo Pitti (Pitti Palace,). This was the former residence of the rich Medici family, but today it hosts several galleries and museums. Behind the palace, you can find the magnificient Boboli Gardens.
We will continue to learn about Florence’s rich cultural history during your sightseeing tour. You’ll see Piazza della Signoria with its impressive sculptures and imposing palaces. Among these, the Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore) with its colorful marble facade and the Giotto’s Bell Tower. Close to them you also find the Baptistry. This last building is famous for its bronze doors, that Michelangelo used to call “the Gates of Paradise”.
The Uffizi Gallery and the Academy (David): the heart of Florence
The Uffizi Galleries (skip the line option) are not far from Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge). In these museums, you can admire unique paintings of Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raffaello, Leonardo Da Vinci. In addition, you have the opportunity to visit the Accademia Gallery. This other important museum is very famous for housing the original David statue of Michelangelo.
If you want to have a nice view over the Old Bridge instead, we suggest you to walk along the river Arno. On Ponte Vecchio you find today many beautiful jewelry shops.
Another place you cannot miss is Piazzale Michelangelo, a big terrace square from where you can enjoy a complete view of the city of Florence with all its main attractions. It’s usually the first place we take you, here you can take some great pictures.
