Ports

  • Porto Livorno, 57123 Livorno, Province of Livorno, Italy


Your shore excursion will begin with pickup from your port in Livorno, where you’ll meet your private driver and hop aboard your coach.

 

After a scenic, 2-hour drive through the Tuscan countryside, arrive in Siena. Home to the Palio di Siena – the famous horse races held twice a year in the town square – Siena is an incredibly beautiful city, with quaint streets and one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Italy. Designed in Gothic style, the Siena Cathedral tantalizes the eye with a rare, striped marble.

After exploring Siena, hop back in the car to visit the quaint village of Monteriggioni. Built on a hill overlooking the Cassia Road in the early 13th century, you'll have the chance to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal (additional cost) in this historic place.

Continue to the hilltop town of San Gimignano, with towers dating back to the 11th century. Stroll around the charming streets to admire the Palazzo del Popolo, the Duomo, the St Agostino Church and more. After exploring by foot, enjoy some free time to peruse the small shops or people-watch. Your shore excursion will conclude with private transportation back to your cruise port in Livorno.

Upgrade your ticket to include a 2-hour tour in Siena and San Gimignano with a private guide, including admission into the Siena Cathedral. Otherwise, enjoy exploring both towns independently.

Exactly the kind of day trip we enjoy.
KT2019-20
, Sep 2019
Flexible with schedule. Flexible with itinerary. Impromptu stops for photos and exploration. Time on our own for shopping and exploration. Informative guide in Siena (Lara). Excellent driver (Luigi). As with most cruise day trips, there’s never enough time - but we felt we got a good taste of the area. Just enough to know we have to return for an extended period.

Two couples from a cruise in Livorno had one day for overview of Tuscany; we chose Siena and San Gimignano...good choice! Our tour guide Valerio was fun, informative, a very good driver, and recommended good spots for eating and shopping. We unreservedly recommend both him, and Viator!

Had a wonderful day travelling through the picturesque Tuscan countryside. Our private driver was great - friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating, and was waiting for us at the port when we arrived. We visited the beautiful historical villages of Siena, Maggiore and San Gimignano where we had time to wander around on our own. Thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed.

Tomaso, the driver, was great. The trip was wonderful. Truly a highlight of our trip to Italy. It was well worth the expense to take a private tour as we utilized our time to the maximum benefit. The vehicle wss new and clean and Tomaso drove safely and obviously knew the area extremely well. We could not have been more pleased.

We chose this tour instead of some other excursions offered by our cruise ship when recently visiting the port of Livorno. We're glad we did. We're not sure what we enjoyed more -- the day-long drive through and visit to beautiful Tuscany and several of its sites, including Monteriggioni, Siena, San Gimignano, and a local winery, or, the professional service provided by and getting to know our driver, Alessandro. He was simply great. He was impeccably dressed, met us on the pier at the designated time with a sign with our name, a big smile and a warm hand shake for each of our group of 6 adults and two teenage boys. He then escorted us quickly to his large, clean, new and air conditioned van, and then provided us with cold water. Throughout the day he enthusiastically answered our questions, provided us with interesting information about the places we were passing through and visiting, got us close to the places we were visiting, and then patiently waited for us. We felt we learned as much about the area and culture from our conversations with Alessandro as we did about the places we visited and reading various tourist information we had about the areas. For lunch, we went with one of Alessandro's suggestions and visited a local winery, Podere La Marronaia, in a farm-house setting with beautiful views just outide of San Gimignano. We enjoyed our stop there very much, eating home-cooked pasta, along with fresh breads, hams, and cheeses, and tasting several local wines and olive oils. The people at the winery, like Alessandro, were very friendly, informative, and passionate about sharing and answering all of our questions adding to our memorable day. We ended our day as scheduled back at the port at the designated time, well before our ship departed for its next port. Grazie, Alessandro, for a great day and life-time memory. We highly recommend this trip and would give it more than 5 stars if we could.

Amazing trip through the Tuscany Valley to Siena and San Gimignano. Our driver Luigi was excellent and pointed out points of interest along the way. He also arranged a wine-tasting and lunch for us at a small family-owned vineyard which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had enough time in Siena and San Gimignano to wander around and enjoy the towns on our own. Overall, it was a wonderful day and a trip we highly recommend.

We had a fabulous day, and our driver Leonardo is what made it so special. he was on time, and took us through the countryside telling us stories and describing why he loves his home so much. He took us to a private vineyard outside San Gimiano and we had a wonderful lunch and wine tasting. He was fabulous, as i am sure the other guides are from Prestige Rent.
