Destinations

Transportation

One of our professional, knowledgeable English speaking driver guides will be waiting at pick up location (where you will be tendered)  or agreed location at 8 am, or according to the agreed time. Your driver will be holding a sign with your or your party’s name on it.

Ports (Pick up is normally 8am or otherwise agreed upon)

Our escort driver will be waiting at the gangway of your cruise ship or outside the cruise ship terminal. The escort driver will be holding up a sign with the group’s name on it. The email that accompanies the voucher you receive at the time of booking will indicate the meeting point for each specific port.

We recommend that you meet onboard before exiting the ship. This way you are all together when meeting your escort driver and the tour can commence much more efficiently. Otherwise, the wait time for others will be 20minutes, after which time the tour will proceed.

As for La Spezia Port

Please note you will need to take a complimentary shuttle bus (do not take the shuttle bus going to the city. You want the one to La Spezia) less than 5 minutes where the passenger pick-up is. Please note that the shuttle bus will take you to the exit of the cruise terminal.  There the Escort driver will be waiting with your name on a sign.

Naples Train station

The escort driver will be waiting at the end of the train platform where your train will be arriving at. The escort driver will be holding a sign with the name in which the reservation was reserved.

 

Airport

The escort driver will be waiting at the arrival lobby holding a sign with the name in which the reservation was made under or otherwise stated.

Hotel

Escort driver will be waiting at the lobby of the hotel. Normally pick up is 8:30am or otherwise stated.

Resident/B&B

The escort driver will be waiting outside the main doors of the building.

For groups of more than 8 people from Naples, Sorrento, Amalfi Salerno we can either provide a Mercedes Sprinter minibus or multiple luxury minivans. This will depend on availability. When in Civitavecchia Port, Livorno Port, and La Spezia Port we only provide multiple minivans with the maximum number of 8 people in each minivan. This is because minibuses are prohibited from entering the town center. Therefore, a waste of time will incur walking to the destinations, by minivans you will get to your destination directly without wasting time.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE RESERVE ALL RIGHTS TO CHANGE THE ORDER OF ITINERARY. IF NECESSARY AT OUR DISCRETION DUE TO NATURAL CAUSES(ENVIRONMENTAL) OR POLITICAL REASONS(STRIKES/PROTEST)

Siena-San Gimignano
Pick up port/hote/resident we will start to drive towards Siena, the furthest city we can visit from the port of Livorno but definitely one of the most charming! Siena(Saena Julia),was founded by the Romans as a military colony due to its position on a hilltop, incredibly strategical that also the Medici from Florence decide to conquer it. On the way to Siena we will stop also in Monteriggioni, a spectacular fortress, completely intact. Coffee or Cappuccino break is a must! We will then proceed to Siena. The architecture of Siena will take your breath away! You can purchase a special pass to visit of The Duomo (Santa Maria della Scala), The BaptisteryThe Crypt and the “Facciatone” or simply stroll around the Cathedral Square to take fabulous pictures of these mighty monuments. Just a few minutes down the main street you will reach the famous Piazza del Campo “The Campo”, a unique “shell shaped” square facing one of the tallest towers in Italy, the Torre del Mangia (Mangia’s Tower). The Campo is also know for the Palio, a crazy horse race still going on every year in Siena (since ancient times).   Around lunch time we will leave Siena to head to San Gimignano, probably the most beautiful medieval village in our region. You will recognize San Gimignano immediately as 13 watch towers stand in the middle of the village. Here you will have time to shop in the local stores (leather goods, hand painted pottery, wine, olive oil and more), visit the Church of Collegiata (completely covered with frescoes), walk of top the Torre Grossa (the tallest tower) or enter the medieval Torture Museum. Don’t forget to try Dondoli’s Gelato…the best in the World or sip a glass of the famous Chianti wine in one of the little wine shops! Upon request we can organize a wine tasting with full lunch in a family owned winery (see details below).
