one day in Livorno

by tinatel

We will be in Livorno one day on the Celebrity Equinox Ship. Are there any tour buses that will pick up at the cruise port and have tours to Pisa and Florence returning the same day?

Re: one day in Livorno

by leics

As far as I can see, tours which operate from Italian (and other) cruise ports are of the 'private tour' type. Most cruises organise their own excursions, so there would be no logic in tour buses hanging around on the off-chance of getting customers.

Private tours are not cheap, but if you google e.g. 'livorno florence tour' you will find some examples.

However, it is extremely easy for you to get to Pisa and/or Florence by yourself, if you choose. Walk, or take bus or taxi, to Livorno Centrale railway station. ticket machines have English language options, trains are safe amd frequent.

Train times, details and fares in English here:

http://www.trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html

Livorno > Florence Santa Maria Novella station (SMN) takes about 1.5 hours, one-way fare from 6.60 euro, no changes.

Livorno>Pisa Centrale takes lss than 2 minuts,, no changes, cots 1.80 eur.

You could go to Pisa, get bus number 4 from the station to the Campo dei Miracoli (or walk...takes about 20 minutes..or get a taxi), then return to the station and take the train to Florence (SMN is around 10 minutes walk from the Duomo in Florence, train journey takes around an hour) and return to Livorno from there.

All the stations have easy-to-use ticket machines with English language options.

Remember to validate (date-stamp) your tickets using the yellow machines on the platform before boarding the trains, and make sure you allow plenty of time to get back..ships do not wait.

Tuscanheart.com has tour guides that will pick you up. Daniel, who was our driver, was absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend him.. He has lots of suggestions for out of the way places to go to. We had him drive us around Tuscany for 7 days and we just loved him!

DON'T MISS THEIR DELICIOUS CINQUE E CINQUE!

by randychiara about Da Gagarin

ohhhhh
this is an all the time favourite for the local people!

They only make Cinque e Cinque, the chick peas pie
but it's sooooooo good

they also have this spuma bionda which tastes like guaranà, my fave brasilian drink! the owners are very rude ( in funny way) to each other and friendly with the customers, they yell at each other all the time
they are hilarious
i have so much fun when i go there
this is open from the morning till about 8pm

very close to the mountain too

by randychiara

Livorno is a perfect city to live in Italy.
It has a very good climate the whole year round, something like Los Angeles, it's on the beach but it's also very close to the mountains (2 hours drive) and very close to important cities like Pisa ( 20minutes by car or train), Florence (50 minutes by car or train), Siena (40 minutes by car), San Gimignano and so on
Most young people, like me, usually go snowboarding on these mountains, they usually get a lot of snow and there are even snowparks

Chiesa di San Jacopo in Acquaviva

by maykal

At the end of the Terrazza Mascagni, a piazza opens up, ending with the church of San Jacopo in Acquaviva. Not the most attractive church in the world, it's not particularly ugly either...but the church and the adjoining old houses do stand out a bit, surrounded by the modern buildings across the piazza.

On the sea side of the square, you can get a good view of those sunning themselves on the rocks in the private bathing complex. Just as we were walking past, we noticed two girls posing in their designer beachwear and a rogue wave fast approaching. We stopped to watch the carnage ensue, and snorted as they screamed and checked their makeup.

Our Fourth Port of Call - Livorno Italy

by Suzze

"A trip out to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa"

We had a half day trip on this one as we had been out all day the day before and would be out all day the next day. So a welcomed lie in was in order and a late breakfast before we descended on Pisa for the afternoon.

The foundations of the Leaning Tower of Pisa began to subside when the builders reached it's fourth storey, and each year it was said to lean a little more. A band around the tower prevented further lean, and the tower is now in the same condition as it was in 1810.

"The Baptistry"

Building was begun in 1153 and was not finished untill 1278, with Gothic additions in the 14th century, and it is built entirely of white marble.
