This is the easiest, fastest and best value for money transportation option between Livorno and Florence.

Enjoy a low cost and direct bus transfer from Livorno to Florence, helping you to maximize your time and providing assistance and information in order to give you a low cost worry-free experience. The departure is at 09.45 am from the same place where the cruise shuttle bus from the port arrives at Via Cogorano at the back of Piazza Grande. From there the bus goes directly to the center of Florence.

The point of arrival and departure from Florence is at Piazzale Montelungo. A few meters from Central Station Santa Maria Novella, located at the entrance of the historic city center. You arrive in Florence around 11.00 am, depending on traffic conditions. Although Florence has the density of monuments by surface highest in the world, the small size of its historic center allow to visit it easily on foot. The Piazza del Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the Baptistery, Giotto's Bell Tower), Piazza della Signoria (Old Palace, Loggia dei Lanzi), the elegant Ponte Vecchio, meaning "old bridge" which dates back to 1345, and today hosts elegant jewelry shops. The cobbled streets, the numerous squares, churches, palaces, sculptures of the great masters of the Renaissance, and the tasty food and wine offers will not let anyone get bored. (Free time in Florence: 4 hours 45 minutes)

You depart from Florence at 15.45 pm. The bus will bring you back in 75/80 minutes to Via Cogorano at the back of Piazza Grande, where you can take a shuttle bus back to your cruise ship or stay for a while in Livorno if time permits.

Once you book your low cost transfer, you have your reserved seat on the bus. You can arrive just 15 minutes before at the shuttle bus stop and our staff will be there to give you all the information you need.
