Livorno Shore Excursion: Private Day Trip to Siena and San Gimignano

7 Reviews

  • Location: Livorno, Italy
  • Duration: 9 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5292LIVORNO3
When your cruise ship docks in Livorno and you have only a single day to visit the surrounding Italian towns of Siena and San Gimignano, you’ll need a privately guided shore excursion to see the best of these picturesque cities. On this nine-hour day tour, immerse yourself in Italian life, explore the beautiful city of Siena and walk the medieval streets of San Gimignano before returning to your cruise ship in Livorno.

Your private driver will pick you up at your ship at Livorno port and take you on a scenic two-hour drive through the Tuscan countryside. You’ll reach Siena, where the beauty and character of this sleepy city will stun you and make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

Highlights

  • Excellent value for money
  • Includes free admission to top local attractions
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Draped on three hills, Siena is an incredibly beautiful city, with quaint streets and a gothic cathedral – the Duomo is one of the most spectacular in Italy and one of the few to have been built south of the Alps in full gothic style. Once you’ve experienced its charm, you’ll understand why Siena has been the setting for films, photographs and advertising campaigns. Soak up as much of this enchanting town as you can before heading to San Gimignano.

On the way to San Gimignano, you will stop in Monteriggioni, one of the most classical towns in Italy. This small village was built by the Senesis in the years 1213-1219 on a hillock overlooking the Cassia Road. Here, you'll have the chance to enjoy a true Tuscan meal (additional cost).

After lunch, you will arrive in San Gimignano, built on a hill that dominates the Elsa Valley, with towers that date back to the 11th century. In San Gimignano, you can admire famous sites like the Duomo, the Collegiate Church, the Palazzo del Popolo, the Palazzo Nuovo del Podestà (which is now the town hall) and the S. Agostino Church. Or simply enjoy your free time by people-watching in a local bar or shopping till you drop in the local shops. When you’ve finished exploring San Gimignano, jump back in your luxury minivan for your transfer back to your ship in Livorno.

For a more in depth experience, upgrade your tour to include a private guide for two hours in Siena and San Gimignano and entrance into the cathedral. If you don’t upgrade, you’ll simply explore Siena and San Gimignano on your own.

We had a fabulous day, and our driver Leonardo is what made it so special. he was on time, and took us through the countryside telling us stories and describing why he loves his home so much. He took us to a private vineyard outside San Gimiano and we had a wonderful lunch and wine tasting. He was fabulous, as i am sure the other guides are from Prestige Rent.

Davide was a superb tour guide and arranged for a luncheon which was a highlight of our trip. Very punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and conversational.
This was our favorite excursion of the trip.
