Tour Duration: 9 hours
When your cruise ship docks in La Spezia, you will meet your personal driver at the port. In an hour, in the comfort of a luxury vehicle, you will reach Florence and set off exploring the most ancient and fascinating places in the city.
You will see the city’s historical area, that is predominantly pedestrian and admire Piazza del Duomo. The Duomo (Cathedral), dedicated to Santa Maria del Fiore and designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, is a typical example of the Italian Gothic architecture. Its dome, originally unfinished and then completed in 1436, is the most distinguishing feature of the Florentine skyline, symbolizing a great cultural tradition and the city’s civic awareness. You will also see the outside of the Baptistery adjacent to the Duomo.
The Tour continues in Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of the city from the Middle Ages to the present day. The piazza is named after the most important monument there, Palazzo della Signoria, designed in 1298-99 venue of the Republican government and later of the Gonfalonier of Justice and the Priors of the Arts.
Close by the Piazza della Signoria you will visit Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), the oldest bridge that crosses the river Arno at its widest point. It dates back to Roman times and has been re-built on several occasions. After the flooding of 1333, it was re-constructed with a double row of shops, passing from a defensive type of architecture to the current one. In 1565 the east-facing Vasariano Corridor above the shops was built and the back-shops were added in the 17th century, giving the bridge its modern-day structure.
Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant in the piazza and then visit the elegant Ponte Vecchio, where you will find boutiques and jewelery shops. After lunch and shopping you will depart for La Spezia. If you’d like to try some of the italian’s best ice cream, your driver will make a stop along the way! Return to the ship by 5:00 pm.
