What people are saying about Port of Livorno

It was a really lovely day. lucca is so pretty and we enjoyed a lovely lunch with pasta. Then back on the coach to Pisa to see the tower. This trip was great value as it cost 3 times more when booked on the cruise ship.

If you are on a cruise, the company is in communication, therefore they know about delays and everything is very well coordinated. They also left us on the same ship at the end !! Very good service

Meets right where cruise shuttle drops off . Easy to find guides etc. super friendly staff. Long walk from bus in pisa if you have any mobility issues.

Just the right excursion for the limited time. Lucas was an amazing town and the Tower speaks for itself.

The experiences and the tour in Lucca were very impressive. The stay in Pisa was also great.
