We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Meet your Private Guide in Florence and start your walking tour to discover the city universally known as the cradle of the Renaissance. In this wonderfully preserved city, you’ll witness the evidence of the incredible cultural movement of the Renaissance that transformed Florence and the rest of Europe in the 15th century, and extended its influence into all aspects of life: science, philosophy, art, religion, politics and literature. The great artists, architects, thinkers and political figures who led the Renaissance were born in the fertile lands in and around Florence, and all within the same century: Donatello, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Michelangelo, Lorenzo the Magnificent de' Medici and Machiavelli, just to name a few.

Quite surprisingly, Florence’s treasures are all enshrined in a relatively small area which is the setting for our city walking tour. With your private guide you’ll take in some of the sights while admiring the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria. You’ll be impressed by the stunning dome of the Duomo, the largest in the world at 45 meters in diameter, and the perfect harmony between the Cathedral and Baptistery. From the religious center you will then walk to the Political center and hear the fascinating stories of a city devoted to culture and liberty. The prestigious Ponte Vecchio and its inspiring view will help reveal the real life of an economically prosperous city and its wealthy historical families. 

From there, you will continue with your private driver on this geographical and cultural immersion into the heart of Italy, as you discover Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower. While in most Italian cities the main square is generally called Piazza del Duomo, Pisa's main square has been renamed Piazza dei Miracoli (Plaza of Miracles), thanks to the Italian poet and writer, Gabriele D'Annunzio, who described Pisa as the "Prato dei Miracoli," the "meadow of miracles" being so very much impressed by its dreamy atmosphere.

After your pleasant stop in Pisa, you will head back to Florence, where your tour will finish and you will be left with memories for a lifetime.

      I was wondering whether it is possible to visit Florence and Pisa on a day trip from Rome. We only have one day available to visit these places and don't want to choose on just one. Thanks in advance for your help

    • Ciao Julia! What a great question! It happens quite often that we have guests that would like to see as much as possible in one day due to their tight schedules.

      While I personally believe it best to spend one night in Florence, to be able to enjoy and get a real feel for the city and its history, it is absolutely doable in one day.

      The tours we offer in Florence and Pisa that you can find on our website are designed both to start and finish in Florence. However, our great tour designers will be happy to set up a private driver for you from Rome, to include a stop in Florence and a visit in the city center and the Accademia, and then continue towards Pisa.

      If you are looking instead for a more cost effective option, I highly suggest booking the fast train from Rome to Florence early in the morning (it takes no longer than 1.5 hours and it much cheaper than a private driver) and meeting your private guide and driver directly at the Florence train station!

      Just send us an email at info@eyesofrome.com and we will send you an outline of all options available!

      Hi. We are coming to a cruise this April and want to see Florence and Pisa. Do you recommend this tour for us? Do you arrange pick up at the port?

      Ciao Maia. We can absolutely arrange a shore excursion for you! If you are travelling by cruise ship, you will most likely have a stop in Civitavecchia (for your shore excursion in Rome) and another stop in Livorno or La Spezia, from where we can organize your shore excursion to Florence and Pisa.

      Simply drop us an email with the exact port of arrival and we will start organizing your Florence and Pisa Tour!

      Best,

      Mara
