From Livorno you will drive few km on the Superstrada and than by Aurelia Road (1st Roman Road Built
in Italy ) you will reach Pisa.

By car or Minivan (1-8 pax):
Once in the city, you ll drive along the walls surrounding the city centre and the Miracle Square.
Throught one of the Gate you'll reach the Miracle Square right at the feet of te Leaning tower.
Before dropp you off your driver will contunue to give some infos and will point you the different
monuments that are in the Square. Baptistery, Cathedral, Leaning Tower, Cemetery, Museum of the
Cathedral. If will be possible the driver will take you to the ticket office in order to give you the
possibility to visit the monuments inside. If you want to climb the leaning tower we suggest to book
online http://www.opapisa.it/

By Minibus or us (more than 8 pax):
With big groups ( from 9 people to more) we always suggest to hire a Tour Assistant.
In Pisa we can just get to the Bus Parking area where we must pay the check point and you must reach the leaning tower by 2 ways :
1) a shuttle bus from the bus parking area to the Miracle Square .it cost a fee ticket
2) 10 minutes walking Your assistant will take you any way you decide.
Up to the time and the crowd. She will take you till the Miracle Square and she will point you the ticket
office where to purchase the admissions in case you wish to visit the museums.She will give you a
meeting point and time somewhere in the Miracle Square and with her you go back to the Bus.

From Pisa to Voterra
Your driver will take again the Superstrada Fi-Pi-Li ( the faster way ) till Pontedera.
From there will drive throught the beautifull landscape of Val D Era Valley, where obviouslly the Era river runs throught .
This countryside is caractherised by filds coltivated in corn and cereals but also by hils of clay, called Bianconi hills. After 1h driving you will reach the Etruscan town of Volterra. Car /Van and minibusses and busses can reach the same spots. A square where is a beautifull terrace facing the valley till far away. During the clear days we can see the Mediterranean Sea from there. From this square you can reach the city centre and start your tour with or witout a tour assistant. With the tour assistant you can have the orientation tour of the city. Please remind:
if you like to have a deep guided tour of the city you must hire the Authorised guide of Volterra.
If you do not hire tour assistant and/or guides, the bus driver will provide you maps and his phone
number.In the same place where you will be dropped off you will be picked up.
Unfortunatelly we are at the end of the tour. You ll leave Volterra in time to catch your cruise in Livorno
Harbour.
