Livorno Italy is the most convenient port for travelers who want to reach Florence. Which does not mean that it is All that convenient! Two hour bus rides each way, or take one’s chances on the train schedules…

We opted to use our day in Livorno a bit closer to the port. There were six of us signed up for a tour I had arranged, two had to drop out at the last minute due to illness. So we four went off to the walled city of Lucca for a few hours, then back to the port with about an hour and a half in Pisa, including some time in the cathedral. My first time in Pisa, I am pleased to report that the tower does lean and that it seems in no immediate danger of falling.
