Great day in Florence and Pisa

When our cruise ship stopped in Livorno, we were met at the port by our driver and taken in a comfortable black Mercedes directly to Florence. Our driver was very professional and personable and had bottles of water for each of us. In Florence we met our tour guide, Raffaela. We all loved Rafaella! She is a lovely person who was raised in Italy and speaks perfect English (with a Boston accent). Rafaella is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in art, history, culture, government, and pretty much everything else. She seems to know all the locals in the city and it was a joy to watch her interact with everyone; her connections also helped us avoid lines and waits in various locations. We toured much of the city walking through narrow alleys and seeing beautiful architecture, multiple public squares (Piazza della Signoria and Piazza della Repubblica), cathedrals (Basilica di Santa Croce, the Duomo, the Baptistery, Orsanmichele), Michelangelo’s David (at the Galleria dell'Accademia), the Ponte Vecchio, and many other memorable sights. In Pisa we visited the Piazza del Duomo where we viewed the Cattedrale di Pisa and Leaning Tower from the outside. Rafaella and our driver dropped us off back at the ship where we all said goodbye. It was a wonderful day and a wonderful tour. Thank you LivItaly and Rafaella!
