I’ve booked my private tour to Florence from La Spezia Port for 8:00am, can I change the pickup time on the same day of the tour?
Unfortunately, no! For security reasons, the day before 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 I customize the itinerary of my private tour to Florence from La Spezia Port?
Yes, you can! You can customize all the details (pick-up time, stops, duration).

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.

 

 

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 for the Accademia Museum and Uffizi Gallery. Please pay attention to the time you choose and be sure it is feasible with the tour schedule. For any doubt simply ask us.

 

 

May I visit both attractions (Accademia Museum and the 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, 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.
