Cruise Passengers

Jewish Florence and Accademia tour with short visit to Pisa

Full Day round trip from the dock  – Private driving service 

If your cruise trip is docking in Livorno or La Spezia and you want to add a Jewish Florence tour, we will bring you to Florence and back, with a guided tour in Florence and a stop in Pisa to see (but not climb!) the Leaning Tower. 

You will be picked up by an English-speaking driver at your dock. You will be driven straight to Florence in an 8-passengers minivan. The Guide will meet you in Florence.  

The tour will start with the visit to the Accademia Gallery to see the original David by Michelangelo and his other statues. Then you will visit the great Synagogue and Jewish Museum.

Walking through the city center you will discover Jewish presence in Florence from Renaissance to today, visiting many of the most famous landmarks as well as sites of less-well-known Jewish history.  These include the area around the Duomo, with the Baptistery’s famous Gates of Paradise (10 panels with Tanach stories), the Piazza della Repubblica, where the Jewish ghetto remained until it was torn down in the late 19th century. We will end up with Piazza della Signoria, and the area around the Ponte Vecchio, including the former Via dei Giudei (Street of the Jews). The guided tour in Florence will last 3 hours.

Lunch break at leisure. We can book for you a table at the kosher restaurant near the synagogue.

In the early afternoon your driver will take you to Pisa for a short visit to see the Leaning Tower (no climbing up) and then take you to your ship.

During the tour you will receive my map of Jewish itinerary in Florence, designed on behalf of the local Jewish Community and published by APT (the Florence Tourist Office).
