Daily Tour Itinerary

Among the tours offered by us this is the only one that we can choose to do in several ways.

Being very efficient the railway connection, once reached Riomaggiore you can take the train and make a stop in each village, rather than traveling by sea if the conditions do not allow it.

Another solution may be to take the boat at Porto Venere, another small maritime village not far from the Cinque Terre, and do everything by that untill you will reach Monterosso. Here at the end of the day you will meet your driver, who will be glad to take you back to your resort in calm and security.

Dropped off in Riomaggiore and then picked up exactly at the same place is another possible solution. Right here begins the Street of Love, or the long path that connects all the five countries. For those who love to walk twenty minutes will be sufficient in this case to just move on foot from Riomaggiore to Manarola.

Well.. Here we are spoiled for choice! Once you will be arrived at your destination a taste of Sciacchetrà, the fortified wine produced in the area, then it will be the cherry on the cake to a wonderful day spent in peace and relax.

Florence is 1 hour driving from Livorno and it’s famous for its beauty and its history. The city is the capital of renaissance. Michelangelo’ s David Museum and the Uffizi Gallery are surely the most important Italian museums to visit. The visit in the city can be done even hiring a licensed guide for minimum 3 hours who will show the city and the museums in the best way.

In case you visit the city on your own, the driver will kindly take of you care from the beginning to the end of the excursion. But, anyway, remind that in Italy only licensed guides are allowed to do walking tours in the cities and to visit museums with the clients.

Our drivers are allowed to drive through the historic and pedestrian areas so they will dropp you off and pick you up, to leave, wherever you or your guide will decide. The time available in Florence is usually spent going to visit the most important museums and churches and for free shopping before leaving.

Beautiful cities of Etruscan origin and both characterized by a dominant position on the territory surrounding Cortona and Arezzo are located a short distance away (35 km) and it is therefore possible to visit them together in one day.

Cortona. Despite its small size, Cortona has always stood out for its cultural liveliness and an international atmosphere since it became an important center for archaeological research in the 18th century thanks to the “Etruscan Academy” and the “Etruscan Museum”, both founded in 1728. More recently Cortona has returned to the international limelight thanks to the novel by the Californian writer Frances Mayes “Under the Tuscan Sun” which is set there as well as the film that was based on it.

Arezzo. Arezzo, the provincial capital and famous for the production of fine jewelry, was the birthplace of the Benedictine Guido Monaco or Guido d’Arezzo, inventor in the 11th century of musical notes, of Petrarch, Giorgio Vasari and Pietro Aretino while a great artist and mathematician like Piero della Francesca left his masterpiece in this city. This is the extraordinary cycle of Renaissance frescoes “The Legend of the True Cross”, considered a milestone in the history of universal art. Its very well preserved medieval and Renaissance historic center was immortalized by Roberto Benigni in the famous film “Life is beautiful”, which won an Oscar in 1999.

Bolghieri. The itinerary can only start in a Mercedes vehicle, from the famous boulevard of Bolgheri, made famous by the verses of Giosuè Carducci in the poem “Davanti a San Guido”; the avenue, bordered by two rows of centuries-old cypress trees and almost six kilometers long, leads, in a setting of poignant beauty, the village which is accessed through the ancient castle, which stands at the entrance. Here there are numerous taverns and restaurants that offer typical dishes of the local cuisine: spelled soup, ribollita, cabbage soup black, pappardelle al colombaccio, pecorino cheeses and locally produced cured meats.

Castagneto Carducci. After two steps in the village, you can resume your journey along the Wine Road that leads to the town of Castagneto Carducci. Here, in the eyes of the traveler, the beauty of the territory appears in all its entirety. You will be impressed by the regularity of the vineyards, bordered by maritime pines and cypresses. From these lands come the grapes of the cellars which, together with Sassicaia, have made this part of Tuscany famous in the world. The Tenuta dell’Ornellaia (where Masseto, the great merlot and the Ornellaia are produced) is the first to come across and, immediately after, the “boutique cellar” Le Macchiole.

During our drive we will slow climb the road leading to this incredible panorama, gives us a true sense of the rural Tuscan landscape with the rolling countryside scattered with cypresses and olive groves.

Florence is the amazing “Cradle of the Renaissance”, home to wonderful works of art loved all over the world, created by figures such as Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli, Della Robbia, Pontormo, just to name a few. Our first stop is the famous panoramic terrace overlooking Florence, Michelangelo Square from where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the town.

The best-known site of Florence is the domed cathedral of the city, Santa Maria del Fiore, known as The Duomo, whose dome was built by Filippo Brunelleschi. The nearby Campanile (partly designed by Giotto) and the Baptistery buildings are also highlights.

In 1982, the historic centre of Florence (Italian: centro storico di Firenze) was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Our drive then will go on through a continuously changing landscape towards the village of Fiesole where we’ll see a different view point of the city center.

Daily Tour Itinerary

Orvieto. Orvieto is about an hour and a half’s drive from Florence and it is a jewel of medieval architecture and structure, a real plunge into remote times and traditions. Once an important Etruscan centre, it was later annexed to Rome and then flourished in the Middle Ages, thanks to the presence of the popes. We will be driving along the motorway where we will admire the gently rolling hills of the countryside and the unique and impressive position Orvieto stands from: the top of a vertical tuft hill. Once in town, we will be visiting the Duomo with its incomparable gilded and colorful façade decorated with sculptures and mosaics. The interior hosts many masterpieces: frescoes by Fra Angelico and the Last Judgement by Luca Signorelli.

One of the most impressive traces of papal presence is the so called “St Patrick’s well”, a spectacular well built by Clement VII during the sack of Rome in 1527 to provide water to the city of Rome in case of a dramatic attack.  But perhaps the most interesting aspect of Orvieto is its array of picturesque narrow lanes, its small shops of handicrafts and typical foodstuffs. Not to mention the restaurants serving delicious traditional dishes accompanied by the town’s highly prized white wine, the famous “Orvieto” wine.

Civita di Bagnoregio. After lunch we can continue our tour with a visit to the outstanding Civita di Bagnoregio, also called the dying town, as it is currently inhabited by about a dozen of old natives. It has a dramatic position on top of a plateau of volcanic tuft overlooking the river Tiber valley and it is only reachable by a pedestrian bridge crossing the impressive valley that was built in 1965.
