Florence, Pisa, and Tuscan Winery Handicapped Excursion
Like all of our accessible excursions from Livorno, this accessible Tuscany tour will use a wheelchair accessible van to transport you between cities. You’ve got 3 great stops here: the beautiful Renaissance city of Florence, the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, and an authentic Tuscan Winery. You don’t need to choose between beautiful sights and great wine….you’ll get both on this accessible tour of Tuscany.
The Florence, Pisa, & Tuscan Winery Handicapped Excursion starts with a professionally licensed tour guide greeting you with a wheelchair accessible van at the cruise dock. After a scenic one and half hour drive to Florence, you’ll stop at Piazzale Michelangelo where you will have a great view of the city. From here you will hear about the history and culture of Florence and Tuscany including the most important places and artists like Dante Alighieri, Michelangelo, Rafael, Giotto, Tiziano, the Medici family, and others.
Some of the places that you’ll see and hear about on this Tuscany accessible excursion are the Florence Duomo cathedral, Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Santa Croce church, Piazza della Repubblica, and the famous Ponte Vecchio. If you’d like to see a non-tourist part of Florence, your tour guide can bring you to Fiesole, one of the hills of Florence where you can admire the residential area and a beautiful view of the city from above.
Your tour will include a reservation into the world famous Uffizi Gallery or to the Accademia (home of Michelangelo’s David). Let us know which one you would like to see when you make your Tuscany Accessible Tour reservation. Visiting both the Uffizi and Accademia is possible, but if you do you won’t have time to see anything else in the city.
Upon leaving Florence, you’ll drive through the beautiful hills in Tuscany to visit an Italian winery with a real vineyard. You’ll get to experience Chianti wine tasting and snack on local olive oil, salami, and bruschetta.
On your return journey to Livorno, you will stop for a brief accessible tour of Pisa. You can visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa although there is no elevator inside it. The nearby Baptistery and Cathedral have wheelchair ramp entrances available.
If you would like to spend more time in Florence, you can choose the Accessible Florence Highlights Cruise Excursion.

The Florence, Pisa, and Tuscan Winery Handicapped Excursion from Livorno gets a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it uses a wheelchair accessible van; the terrain in the Florence city center and Pisa’s Field of Miracles is flat; and the Florence tourist attractions are not very far apart. Additionally, the winery is step-free. The reason it did not receive a 5 star rating is because of the sometimes uneven paving stones that cover the streets in Florence. If you would like a more accessible tour, you can choose the Pisa & Lucca Accessible Van Cruise Excursion.
