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).
Where is a shop with easy access to the water for Stand Up Paddle board rentals ? Grazie, Bernadette
arriving in November on Celebrity Cruise line. I'm thinking of taking the bus to the train station to take to Pisa on one day and Florence on another. I'm not too familiar with trains and relying on them and buses. Will this be a problem at all?
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.
Are there lockers at Livorno Centrale? I am coming from Elba in the morning and the ferry to Barcelona will leave at 23.30. Check-in opens at 16.00.

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.

Do we have enough time to do both Pisa and Florence??? Not sure if I have this right and appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!!

I am going on a cruise with 12 other family members.When we get off the ship in Livorno Italy, are we able to rent a car that would carry all 13 people? What should we expect to pay. Are we able to rent a taxi for a half a day that would hold 13 people and what would the going rate be? Could this be set up ahead of time or would you have to wait until we get off the ship?
Thanks for your input,
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.
