I booked my private tour to Florence from Livorno Port for 8:00am, can I change the pickup time on the same day of the tour?
Unfortunately no. For security reasons the day prior the tour, we must send to the port authority the list of all our vehicles entering the port, specifying the entrance time to the restricted area close to the ship, etc. This cannot be modified on the day at the last minute.

 

 

Can we reserve a local guide directly on site, on the day?
Unfortunately, no! If you want to add this optional service you must book it at the time of reservation or at least a few days in advance.

 

 

Are the entrance fees for the attractions in Florence included in the price?
The price does not include any entrance fee. If you are interested, please tell us at the time of reservation or book them directly through the website.

Keep in mind that normally in Italy, it is mandatory to have shoulders and knees covered to enter religious sites.

 

 

I’d like to visit the Accademia Museum or the Uffizi Gallery, do I need to pre-purchase the entrance fees?
Absolutely yes! First, because it is the only way to be sure about the availability, and secondly, being timed entrance fees you can arrange your day to maximize your short time ashore.

 

 

Can you prepurchase the timed entrance fees for us?
Yes, we can! This is not our main business but we offer this service to our clients through our partners.

If you prefer, you can buy the tickets on your own: Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Museum. Please pay attention to the time you choose and be sure it is feasible with the tour schedule. If you have a doubt, ask us.

 

 

May I visit both Accademia Museum and Uffizi Gallery in Florence?
Normally and especially for the first-time visitors, due to the short time ashore, we highly recommend choosing one of the 2 attractions, so you can use the balance of the time to see other highlights of Florence.

However, you are free to decide how to spend your time. So if it is your main interest, surely you can visit both.

Just to help you plan your day, from our experience people spend 45 mins/1 hour at Accademia Museum where the main attraction is the David by Michelangelo, and at least 2/3 hours at Uffizi Gallery.

Yes, it is! We can accommodate people with reduced mobility and foldable wheelchair/scooters users.

It is totally up to you! Our vehicles have special permits/licenses to circulate almost everywhere (pedestrian areas included). For people with walking difficulties, we can drop you off right in front of the Cathedral or directly in Piazza della Repubblica.

Obviously, the best way to enjoy the historic city centers is by walking, being a private service you are free to decide your own pace with no rush.
