Few structures in the world rival the beauty and elegance of the Duomo, the grand Cathedral of Florence with a dome that dominates the skyline of the renaissance city. It is often referred to as one of the largest cathedrals in the world. Florence is also home to a number of architectural masterpieces by renowned architects including Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, many of which can be found at the Uffizi Gallery - which is one of the oldest and most significant museums of art in the western world.

Florence’s most famous bridge, the Ponte Vecchio has been in place over the Arno River since 1345 is home to the gold and silver guilds and was also the only bridge in the entire city to survive the Second World War. Other popular sites in the city include the Palazzo Pitti, which is one of Europe’s best-preserved royal residences.

In terms of shopping, Florence has a rich mercantile history and is still often referred to as a shopping mecca. The Santa Croce area is home to some of the finest leather-shops within Italy and is also where the famous actress Grace Kelly had a handbag designed for her.

Pisa, Italy

No visit to Pisa would be complete without a visit to the field of miracles, which is where you will find the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Baptistery and the Cathedral. The leaning tower provides the perfect photo opportunity and is sometimes open for visitors to climb to the top.

When visiting Florence or Pisa by cruise, your cruise ship will most likely dock in the Port of Livorno, on the coast. From the cruise port, Florence is typically a ninety-minute drive away whilst Pisa and the famous tower are just a forty-five minute drive from Livorno.
