How to get from the port of Livorno to Florence

If your cruise ship arrives at the port of Livorno, you have the opportunity to see the sights of Florence during the day. One way trip will take you about 1.5-2 hours. You can get to Florence by bus, train or order a transfer. Let's consider all options in detail:

Round-trip bus for 30 euros

  • Important: You need to book a bus ticket in advance, preferably immediately after buying a cruise. On certain dates there may not be tickets for 3-4 weeks already.

The bus journey from Livorno to Florence will take you about 1 hour 15 minutes. The buses are comfortable.

A round-trip ticket costs 30 euros per person. A nice bonus is the free map of Florence for self-study of attractions. We recommend booking bus tickets on the website www.getyourguide.ru

Choose a date.

Add to the basket, pay for the ticket and receive confirmation by mail.

If suddenly your plans change, then there is the opportunity to cancel your reservation with a 100% refund at least 2 days in advance.

A bus stop is a 10-minute walk from the port opposite Gelateria Latte Cafe at 32 Piazza del Municipio, Livorno.

The bus arrives in Florence at 11:00 at Piazzale Montelungo, from where you can walk to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in the very center of the city in 15-20 minutes.

Return the bus leaves at 15:45, we advise you to be at the bus stop in 10 minutes.

In Florence you have 4.5 hours of free time, how to spend it?

  1. Order an individual sightseeing tour in Russian. In 2.5 hours you will see the main attractions, learn interesting facts and spend time as efficiently as possible. The rest of the time you can spend on lunch with a Florentine steak.
  2. On your own or in the form of an individual tour, visit the Uffizi Gallery.

Taxi

The most comfortable way to get to Florence from the port of Livorno is to order a transfer from kiwitaxi.ru

The driver will meet you at the port with a sign at the indicated time. You can choose your car class. The cost of a one-way transfer from 174 euros for a company up to 3-4 people. The average travel time is about 2 hours.

Regional train

To get to Florence by public transport, I advise only the most risky and experienced travelers because of the high risks of being late for the departure of the cruise ship. Strikes, delays and cancellations of regional trains in Italy are the norm. If suddenly you still decide to take a chance, here is the logistics:

Near the port you need to find the Grande 2 Porto Mediceo bus stop and take the LAM BLU bus to the Livorno Centrale station. Go 9 stops, 11 minutes. The bus runs at intervals of 7-15 minutes. The official website with the schedule is here www.livorno.cttnord.it

At the train station, you need to catch the regional train, which should take you to the central station of Florence Santa Maria Novella (S. Maria Novella) in about 1 hour 8 minutes.

If you suddenly do not have time for the train, then the next one should be in an hour. Tickets cost 9.90 euros.

I advise you to plan to leave from Florence no later than 15:30.
