    This is the perfect full-day tour for all those who have visited Florence before, or feel independent enough to explore it without the assistance of a local guide.

    A city of many layers, Florence is at once an overrun tourist magnet and a living, breathing Medieval city that is home to proud Florentines. The former home to Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Dante and Machiavelli, Florence's cultural importance can't be overstated. It is also home to three of the world's most renowned museums, the Uffizi, Galleria dell'Accademia and Bargello. Florence also boasts an incredible number of important churches, which house equally important master works. The Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens, Pitti Palace and spectacular Duomo are but a few of the city's many desirable sites offering wonderful photo opportunities.

    A walker's city, the center of Florence is a compact labyrinth of alleys and piazzas. While en route on the coach, your tour leader will provide you with historical and practical information about Florence, and a detailed map of its center to make it easy to move around on your own. Once in town, you'll be accompanied to Piazza Santa Croce, which will be your meeting point for the drive back to the port of Livorno.

    Please note: Walking on this tour is at the guests' discretion. You will have between 5 and 6 hours to explore the city , shop, and eat lunch on your own before returning to the meeting place to take the coach back to Livorno and the ship. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Suitable attire is required to enter churches/monasteries. The historic center of Florence is accessible only to pedestrian traffic. If you choose to purchase this transfer, it is advisable to purchase a good guide book to the city before leaving home. On Mondays, most of the shops in Florence are closed between 9:00am and 3:30pm, and all the main museums are closed. No guided tour applies, only transportation to and from Florence. An official escort will be on the bus and will provide some information about Florence and places to visit. Maps are available on the bus. There is approximately a 15-20 minute walk from the parking area to the meeting point.
