Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

Livorno (Florence & Pisa)
Italy

The port of Livorno is located in the north-west of Italy. It is the port of call to visit Pisa, Florence or Cinque Terre. Livorno in itself has nothing to offer visitors.

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy where art and architecture are omnipresent. The Duomo, the dome of its cathedral, is one of the symbols of the city. It is also where one can see important works of art like Michelangelo’s statue of David.

It is impossible to see everything in one day. If you are lucky enough to spend a few days in Florence before or after your cruise, it is definitely worth it. It’s easy to reach Venice or Rome by train if your cruise starts or ends at one of these ports.
