The soul of Italy can be found in this excursion, which combines the finest art with the best local street food.
A panoramic motorcoach drive from Livorno brings you to the city center of Florence. Enjoy an hour in Florence's pedestrian-friendly city center, traveling by private electric cart. An audio headset acquaints you with the point of interests. Use the photo stops to admire the cathedral, the baptistery and the Ponte Vecchio before your sightseeing tour ends at Piazza Signoria, in the heart of Florence.
Only few minutes' walk away, discover the most famous street food in Florence -- a favorite with Food & Wine Magazine readers. Ino -- a friendly sandwich spot set right in the shadow of the Uffizi Gallery -- doubles as a gastronomic shop, stocking fine Italian food products as well as a selection of local wines and craft beers. But most importantly, it offers some of the best street food classics including the tastiest panini in town. Ino is a Florentine institution that elevates the humble sandwich to a gourmet experience. Every ingredient is rigorously selected for its seasonality, quality and provenance -- prosciutto from San Daniele, anchovies from Cetara and truffles from Piedmont... During an exclusive workshop here, learn how to make authentic panini using three different recipes, then sample your creations with a glass of Chianti .
With your batteries recharged, you are ready for the third part of the experience -- the excellence of Italian art. Explore the renowned Uffizi Museum & Gallery, one of the oldest and most famous museums of the western world, rivaled only by the Louvre in its collection of Renaissance masterworks.
Continue your in-depth Florence visit at the famous Santa Croce Square and enjoy some free time for shopping before returning to the ship in Livorno.
