Florence & Pisa Handicapped Accessible Tour from Livorno
You’ve traveled so far to visit Tuscany, don’t you want to get one of the most popular souvenirs in Italy? This Florence and Pisa Accessible Tour takes a brief stop in Pisa where you can get a photo of you holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It’s not just a photo op though…you’ll also learn about the history of the Field of Miracles while admiring this beautiful small Tuscan town.
The Florence & Pisa Accessible Tour 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 handicapped accessible Florence excursion are the 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 Florence & Pisa 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.
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 Baptisery and Cathedral have wheelchair ramp entrances available.

The Florence & Pisa Accessible Tour 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. 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.
