This private shore excursion has been designed for those who have already visited the famous cities of Florence and Pisa, and are interested in exploring other beautiful areas of Tuscany rich in charm, history, and culture.
Pick up right in front of your ship in Livorno will give you the opportunity to travel into the heart of Tuscany and visit these top destinations: Volterra and San Gimignano.
Volterra is one of Tuscany’s most evocative Medieval towns, rich in history, architecture, and famous for the beautifully crafted alabaster objects produced by local artisans.
During the middle ages Volterra served as the bishop’s residence until it was overtaken by Florence.
San Gimignano has a distinctive skyline which has earned it its nickname "Medieval Manhattan" of Tuscany. During the Middle Ages towers were a symbol of power, therefore prestigious families competed in building the tallest and greatest towers to establish their relevance in the community.

What To Expect

Medici Fortress
The imposing Medici Fortress is visible from miles away and characterizes the skyline of Volterra.
This imposing medieval fortress consists of two castles. The older one was completed in the late 13th century and the second castle was built in the 14th century. It is not open to the public since it is a State Jail, but you can admire its magnificent exterior from the park beneath it.

Located in the heart of Volterra, Palazzo dei Priori is the oldest “city hall” in Tuscany. The building work began in 1208 and was completed in the middle of the 13th century.
Nearby is the Cathedral of Volterra.
