Shore Excursions - From the port of Livorno - Florence and Outlet Mall

Florence and Outlet Mall

One of our expert bilingual Drivers will be waiting for you at 08.00 am at the pier as you disembark your ship. He/she will be holding a sign with your name on and after the greetings the tour will start.
After a 90 minute drive through the marvellous Tuscan Countryside on the Autostrada "FI-PI-LI", you will reach Florence. Florence is a wonderful city, an open-air museum. Cradle of Renaissance and home of the De Medici Family and Dante, Florence is located on both banks of the Arno River and it is also surrounded by mountains, the Italian Appennines.
Our first stop will be up on top of the highest place of the city, on the so-called Michelangelo Square to give you and initial wonderful taste of the city from a different point of you.
After this quick stop we will all go downtown for the visit to the Accademia Gallery, that hosts an incredible work of art by Michelangelo, the DAVID.
From there it will be really easy to reach either with the minivan or on foot, the very heart of the city: the Square of the Dome of Florence. You will be surely captured by the beautiful Gothic style of the Dome, Baptistery and Bell Tower by Giotto.
Next is a very picturesque and nice open market called Market of Saint Lorenz also useful for a little stroll that will surely help you digest.
The second part of the day will be for another side of the city.
We sill start from Ponte Vecchio, the most famous bridge in town whose location and look are literally amazing. Right on the bridge there are plenty of jewellery stores and vendors but that obviously is not the main purpose for its importance whatsoever.
After all of this that can be' possibly squeezed in the first part of the day get ready because it is shopping time.
This place may not appeal to historians or art lovers, but for dedicated followers of fashion, designer label junkies or anyone who just can't resist a fantastic bargain, it's as exciting as when Columbus pointed at land and said: "Isn't that America over there?" Welcome then, to The Mall, Italy's most exclusive outlet centre. And with Gucci, Ferragamo, Prada, Bottega Veneta, Sergio Rossi, Yves Saint Laurent and more at up to 60% off (and sometimes even cheaper, but more of that later) it is the Holy Grail of designer shopping.
After departing from the pier we will head towards Florence and then south.
Our first stop will be at Prada.
The Prada outlet is a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort to purchase products from one of Italy's leading stylist for prices up to half off retail price.
Very elegant for a factory outlet .. well it is Prada.
We will then head to Dolce Gabbana and Fendi before heading to the mall.
Out of the handful of shops running parallel to each other Gucci, Ungaro, Valentino, Bottega Veneta, Sergio Rossi, Yves Saint Laurent, Ermengildo Zegna and, of course, Armani have the most wearable booty.
Even if designer labels don't matter to you, it's easy to be seduced by the quality behind the brands.
Buttery soft leather jackets, figure skimming tailored suits, and shoes and handbags - there's just so much you want to buy.
And don't be fooled into thinking you only need an hour to do the lot.
It may be last season's stock, samples and seconds, but browsing is a leisurely pleasure, because for once you can afford the stuff that is usually only seen splashed across celebrity bodies and glossy magazines.
Time to get back to the pier.
