On a one-day shore excursion from the port of Livorno it is possible to combine the highlights of Tuscany’s most amazing city and some retail therapy at the well-known The Mall shopping outlet. We suggest the following (flexible) itinerary to get the most from the day.
The Mall Fashion Outlet
Driving from Livorno directly to The Mall takes about 1h 45m. You will have about three hours to explore the many designer-name shops and bring away some satisfying Italian fashion bargains.
From The Mall it’s just a 45-minute drive to the first stop in Florence; there you will be able to admire from the glorious viewpoint at Piazzale Michelangelo the whole downtown.
The unforgettable view from Piazzale Michelangelo
Next your private driver will take you into the city centre of Florence to admire all of those awesome sights for which the city is so famous: the Ponte Vecchio – the bridge over the Arno famous for its traditional jewellery stores -, the marble-clad Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence’s cathedral (known simply as the “Duomo”) with its astonishing gravity-defying Cupola. The recently-restored octagonal Baptistry, one of the oldest buildings in Florence and the soaring 14th-century Bell Tower.
Piazza della Signoria is another landmark stop with its medieval city hall, the Palazzo Vecchio, and then there’s the unmissable church of Santa Croce where Michelangelo, Galileo and other illustrious Italian figures are buried.
It takes about 1h 15m to return to Livorno from Florence.
