    • around the corner from Ghirlandaio's Last Supper at San Marco convent.

      Florence Jan 13, 2015 at 6:43 PM

      There is a peita in the same room as Ghirlandaio's Last Supper -- I read that the room is the refectory of the hostel of the San Marco convent. I have recollection of it being on the wall to my right as I faced the Ghirlandaio. It looks like glazed ceramic,(a little chipped), white with blue background, in an archway of fruit garland. Does anyone know what it is and by whom?

      Hi am on a cruise that docks in Livorno mid October 2013, having been to Pisa and Florence I would like to do a wine tour and maybe a quick look at Lucca. Will taxis at the port offer such a tour? Ideally I would want a 6 hr tour rather than the 8/9hr full day tours you as will be travelling within my elderly parents (although happy to pay for a day rate).

    • Exiting the port

      by CruisingItaly Online Now Aug 19, 2013 at 3:49 PM

      Hi, I am docking in Livorno in a cruise next week and from what i understand, you can't walk right out of the port area, you must get either a ship sponsored shuttle or tour.
      We are being picked up by a relative who lives nearby. Will they be allowed inside the port area with the car? Is there parking for the public?
      I don't see the point in paying to be taken to the town when we have a car willing to pick us up right from the port!
      Thanks in advance for your advice.

      Livorno – Barcelona by ferry

      by jacquisuiza Online Now Jun 14, 2013 at 2:17 AM

      After a week on Isola d’Elba we will go by Grimaldi ferry from Livorno to Barcelona. We will have to leave the hotel in the morning but the ferry only leaves at 23.30. I already asked Grimaldi Lines about the earliest hour to embark but didn’t get an answer. We will travel by train and bus from Piombino Port to Livorno and won’t have a lot of luggage. How can we spend the day at Livorno and how can we get from Livorno Centrale to the Port? Does the bus to Piazza Grande leave at Central Station?

      My husband saw were you can rent a car from a national rental company for 90 Euros/100 Euros with a GPS with pick up and drop off at the dock in Livorno. Does anyone know what driving conditions are like in and around Pisa, Lucca, Florence, etc. We have been told that driving in Italy can be a challenge. However, he has driven a city bus, 18 wheeler, family car,and is a retired railroad engineer so he is not a novice.

    • Livorno pier to Florence train station

      Two of us are disembarking the cruise with luggage from Celebrity Equinox at the Livorno pier on Sunday, April 29th, 2012. Celebrity will not allow us to book a Florence excursion one-way and take our luggage with us.

      What would be the best option(s) for transport directly from the pier to the main train station in Florence (Santa Maria Novella)? We received a quote of 160 euros from one transfer service, but that seems excessive.

      We are departing Livorno on ferry for Corsica at 8 am on Sun Apr 29. Will be in Corsica 5 days. We must find SECURE parking near the ferry port for our rental car. The ferry company Corsica Ferries will only tell us that "near the harbour there is a car parking" but no details about where or if it is attended or secure. Since it is Sunday we assume the rental car agency is closed so they will not be able to help. Thanks for any info.
