We are arriving on a cruise ship for one day in Livorno (8:00am to 6:00PM) on Sept 24 and really want to go off on our own. We have rented a car in Livorno and would like to know if it is an easy drive out of the city to Florence and what are some towns we should stop and visit along the way?
driving from livorno to florence is easy, dealing with where to put the car after you get to florence is the difficult part. the downtown is totally closed to all but those with passes so you and your car are stuck on the outskirts. unless florence is do or die for you, consider visiting pisa and especially lucca. or, depending on your interests, head southeast into Etruscan country.
