From La Spezia Cruise Port you will enjoy a drive through Tuscany’s legendary countryside to your first destination, Pisa.
Pisa is more than just one of Italy’s most iconic cities well recognized for its “Leaning Tower of Pisa”, it’s also a proud city rich in history, architecture and culture. Pisa’s history is so extensive that ancient Romans referred to Pisa as “ancient”. According to one popular legend, Pisa was founded by the mythical king of Pylos after the fall of Troy.
In Pisa you will visit Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles). This awe inspiring square possesses the city’s most significant architectural monuments, witness to its past wealth and power: Pisa’s imposing Cathedral, its iconic “Leaning Tower”, the Baptistery and Camposanto (Holy Field monumental cemetery). Recognized as one of the leading centers for medieval art Piazza dei Miracoli is also a UNESCO Heritage Site.
Your shore excursion from La Spezia journey continues to Florence, the capital of Tuscany.
Also known as the cradle of Renaissance, Florence is a treasure trove of the most priceless works of art ever created. The historical, cultural, artistic, and scientific impact of Florence upon the world is unparalleled. During your visit in Florence you will have the opportunity to see and visit some of the the city’s finest monuments, squares, churches, and museums.
A short drive through the historic center will take you to the Basilica of Santa Croce - also regarded as the Temple of the Italian Glories as it houses the impressive funerary tombs of some of Florence’s most illustrious figures including Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Niccolo Machiavelli. Significant frescoes inside the basilica were created by many of the great masters such as Giotto, Cimabue, Donatello, and Giorgio Vasari among many others.
Piazza del Duomo is the most famous square in Florence boasting three religious monuments with exteriors beautifully decorated with polychrome horizontal strips of stunning green, white and pink marble: Florence’s Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral), Giotto’s Bell Tower, and the Baptistery of Saint John.
The cathedral is one of Italy’s largest churches crowned with the largest brick dome ever constructed. The square with its three religious monuments is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Piazza della Signoria is a lively square brimming with impressive sculptures making it an ideal place to enjoy a lovely lunch at any of the restaurants. In the warm months outdoor seating offers a delightful experience.
Overlooking the square is the imposing Palazzo Vecchio with a replica of Michelangelo’s David statue standing at the entrance.
The arched Loggia dei Lanzi is a open sculpture gallery featuring remarkable classical and Renaissance sculptures. Considering all the magnificent sculptures that can be admired in this square, it’s no wonder it’s considered an open air museum!
Nearby is the famous Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge). With its unique jewelbox gold shops built right on the bridge itself and breathtaking views of the Arno River flanked by aged ochre colored buildings, Ponte Vecchio is one of the most picturesque settings in Florence.
Accademia Gallery of Florence is most famous for housing the original David sculpture by Michelangelo since 1873, and it’s one of the principal art museums of Florence featuring other masterpieces by Michelangelo, and Renaissance era paintings by the great artists of the era such as Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghiarlando, and more.
