Think of Italy and thoughts of iconic monuments, historical treasures and some of the world’s most popular cuisine won’t be far behind. On this trip, you’ll sample all this and more in one memorable half day. After being picked up from the port, you’ll travel to Pisa, enjoying the picturesque Tuscan scenery en route. Once you’re in the city, you’ll walk with your escort to the beautiful square of Campo dei Miracoli. Here, you’ll see the Leaning Tower, the showstopper of Pisa’s sights. This three-storey belltower tilted from almost the very beginning of its construction, and was where Galileo conducted gravity experiments in 1590. You’ll have a bit of free time to walk around and take some photographs of the tower, plus you can admire its neighbours – the striped-marble Duomo and domed Baptistry. Afterwards, you’ll drive through the Tuscan countryside to the little-known wine region of Cenaia. Nestled around marsh-fringed lakes, this lovely spot is blanketed in vineyards. You’ll stop at a traditional wine cellar, where you’ll learn about the wine-making process and sample some wines and local produce before returning to Livorno.
It's a 15-minute walk to Campo dei Miracoli and you'll see its sights from the outside only. It may not be possible for you to go inside the Cathedral or Tower as there are restrictions on the number of visitors allowed inside at a time. You need to cover you knees and shoulders when visiting any religious sites in Italy.
