Cruises from Florence/Pisa (Livorno) depart from spring through fall.
Home to the Italian Naval Academy, Livorno is one of the country's most important ports. Visit the Terrazza Mascagni, a plaza that overlooks the Ligurian Sea, then make the 15-mile trip northeast to Pisa. This province is known for its Leaning Tower, but other monuments in the same complex, including the Baptistery of San Giovanni, are worth exploring. Florence, located 60 miles east of Livorno, is home to the Uffizi, which boasts the works of artists like da Vinci, and the Accademia Gallery, where you can see Michelangelo's David statue. While the Duomo cathedral casts a domineering presence on the Florentine skyline, it's equally impressive up close, its colorful faÃ§ade adorned with intricate artwork and lifelike statues. Excursions into the Tuscan countryside allow you to tour vineyards, sample wines and hunt for truffles.
