Silversea Luxury Cruises A La Spezia

La Spezia

La Spezia is sometimes thought of as nothing but a large, industrialized naval port en route to the Cinque Terre and Portovenere, but it does possess some charm, and it gives you a look at a less tourist-focused part of the Riviera. Its palm-lined promenade, fertile citrus parks, renovated Liberty-style palazzos, and colorful balcony-lined streets make parts of La Spezia surprisingly beautiful. View more

Monday through Saturday mornings, you can stroll through the fresh fish, produce, and local-cheese stalls at the outdoor market on Piazza Cavour, and on Friday take part in the busy flea market on Via Garibaldi. There's also Porto Mirabello, a newly built tourist port with a pool club, shops, and several restaurants that overlook the fleet of super-yachts.

Charming Cinque Terre

Indulge your senses with one of the most beautiful natural sights in Italy during this panoramic boating excursion along the Cinque Terre.


Cinque Terre

After meeting your guide at the tender pier, walk to your boat and commence your scenic coastal cruise. Along the way, take in the spectacular beauty of the Cinque Terre, or 'Five Villages'. Tall cliffs dropping down into the cobalt-blue sea, intimate beaches at Riomaggiore and Vernazza, and tiny ports like Manarola highlight the harsh, wild landscape of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today, the Cinque Terre is also a National Park and Protected Marine Area.


Vernazza

A stop is made at Vernazza, which is located on a steep cliff and adorned with loggias and refined arcades. Upon arrival, disembark your boat and begin your guided walking tour of this noble and elegant village. Afterward, some free time is made available to explore Vernazza at your leisure before embarking the boat for the cruise to Monterosso.


Monterosso

The Medieval centre of Monterosso has remained perfectly preserved, with its tower-houses and narrow alleys, or 'carrugi'. The old section of Monterosso also remains unchanged, and maintains the same look-and-feel of the other villages of the Cinque Terre. During your guided walking tour of Monterosso, see the castle overlooking the sea and the Aurora Tower. Following your guided tour, some free time is made available to explore Monterosso at your leisure. At the conclusion of your visit, commence the one-hour cruise back to the pier, with a snack of 'focaccia' accompanied by white wine served en route.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometre), at times over uneven and hilly surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to embark/disembark the boat, 15 steps at the sites visited, a steep boat ramp and some steep alleys in the villages of Cinque Terre. Walking in Vernazza and Monterosso is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests prone to seasickness, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Proper attire is required to enter the churches; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. Guests must be at least three years old to participate on this tour. Operation of this tour is subject to weather conditions. In rough seas, the tour will proceed by coach and local trains, which are often crowded and have no seats available. The tour sequence may vary.

Florence on your Own

This unforgettable, full-day sightseeing excursion to Florence is ideal for returning guests, or those who prefer to explore Florence independently.


Florence

Depart the pier for the approximately 2.5-hour drive to Florence. En route, receive a detailed map and tour information to make it easy to get around on your own. A brief stop is made at Piazzale Michelangelo, a wide terrace offering superb views of the city, Arno Valley, surrounded by gently sloping hills. In the centre of the square stands the Monument to Michelangelo (1875) with a bronze reproduction of the four statues depicting Day, Night, Dawn and Dusk, dominated by the Statue of David. On the hill behind Piazzale Michelangelo stands the Church of San Miniato al Monte.


Museums and Churches

After your photo and comfort stop, re-board your coach and proceed to the Piazza Santa Croce, your meeting point for the drive back to the pier. Upon arrival, begin your self-guided tour of Florence. A bustling medieval city of many layers, Florence boasts three of the world's most renowned museums; the Uffizi, Bargello and Galleria dell'Accademia, home of Michelangelo's David. Florence is also home to an incredible number of important churches housing equally-important works, including master works.


Landmarks

Whilst strolling about the labyrinth of charming alleys and beautiful piazzas of Florence, marvel at a wealth of beautiful and historic sites. Don't miss the Piazzale Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Boboli Gardens, Pitti Palace, Duomo, Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, Cupola del Brunelleschi, Campanile di Giotto, Centro Storico, and many other spectacular landmarks.


Shopping and Lunch

In addition to its many splendid museums, churches and landmarks, Florence offers wonderful shopping and dining opportunities. You can browse the wonderful shops and boutiques for wine, extra virgin olive oil, clothes, shoes, leather, and jewellery, and stop for lunch on your own at one of Florence's many delightful cafés and restaurants. At the conclusion of your visit, walk to the pick-up point at Piazza Santa Croce, then re-board your coach for the approximately 2.5-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately one mile (about 1.6 kilometres), at times over uneven and cobblestone surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. Walking in Florence is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair.

Guided Tour of Florence

Discover the exquisite beauty, art and architecture of Florence during a full-day sightseeing and shopping excursion to this historic city.


Walking Tour of Florence

Depart the pier for the approximately 2.5-hour drive to Florence, with a comfort stop made en route. Upon arrival, meet your guide and begin your guided walking tour of the city. Highlights to be seen during your visit include the Bell Tower, designed in 1334 by Giotto, and the Baptistery of San Giovanni. Its celebrated doors, known as the 'Gates of Paradise', were commissioned in 1401 and designed by Lorenzo Ghiberti.


Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria

Your first stop is at the Piazza del Duomo, where an inside visit is made at the huge Cathedral, St. Mary of the Flower. The church is adorned with an impressive façade decorated in white, green and pink Tuscan marble. From here, head to the Piazza della Signoria, Florence's second major piazza and the political centre of the city because of its Town Hall, or 'Palazzo Vecchio'. Also known as an open-air museum due to its many statues, this piazza includes Cellini's Perseus, Giambologna's The Rape of the Sabine Women, Ammannati's Neptune Fountain and a replica of Michelangelo's David.


Ponte Vecchio and Piazza di Santa Croce

Your tour continues on with a visit to Ponte Vecchio, also known as the 'Old Bridge'. Ponte Vecchio dates back to 1345, and is the only bridge in Florence to escape being blown up during World War II. Your final stop is the Piazza di Santa Croce. This peaceful, open space is surrounded by stately palazzos, and intimate pizzerias and restaurants. Upon arrival, an outside visit is made to the Franciscan Basilica, which dominates this large square.

Jewels of Tuscany: Lucca and Pisa

Explore the Old World grandeur, architecture and landmarks of Italy during this picturesque, full-day excursion to Lucca, and a photo stop in Pisa.


Lucca and Ancient Walls

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 75-minute drive to the ancient city of Lucca. Founded by the Romans in 180 B.C., Lucca and its historical centre have remained intact through the ages. Upon arrival, marvel at the grandeur of its medieval, approximately 2.6-mile-long (4.2-kilometre-long) red brick walls, along with the historic sites, churches, parks, gardens, promenade, and narrow, cobblestone streets they surround.



Lucca Landmarks

During your guided walking tour, you may see explore some of Lucca's most beautiful, Old World landmarks, including the Churches of San Frediano and San Michele, Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, Cathedral of San Martino, Piazza San Michele, Palazzo Pfanner Garden, Guinigi Tower, and the Puccini Museum. Following your guided tour, some free time is made available for independent sightseeing, shopping on Via Fillungo, and lunch on your own in one of the many local restaurants or pizzerias. Leaving Lucca, re-board your coach and continue on to Pisa.


Pisa

Upon arrival, a photo stop is made at the Campo del Miracoli, or 'Field of Miracles', the religious core of the city. Here, the Leaning Tower, Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto complete an unrivalled quartet of medieval masterpieces. Afterward, some free time is made available to explore your surrounds at your leisure. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier.

Lucca and the Garden of Palazzo Pfanner

Indulge your senses with the splendid beauty of historic Lucca and the Garden of Palazzo Pfanner during this half-day sightseeing excursion. Lucca deserves to be seen and admired not only for the works of art it encloses, but also for being a rare and precious example of an almost intact historic centre.

Lucca and Church of San Frediano

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive to medieval Lucca. The impressive walls surrounding the city date from the 16th century, and enclose and isolate Lucca in their green parks, gardens and promenade. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour through the town and its nearly-intact historic centre. Your first stop is at the Church of San Frediano (outside visit only), popular for the large Byzantine mosaic inserted in its façade.


Roman Amphitheatre and Cathedral of San Martino

Next, proceed for a visit to the Roman Amphitheatre. Built outside the walls in the 1st or 2nd century, it is dotted with cafés and shops, and among the highlights of the town. Afterward, stop by the 6th-century Cathedral of San Martino for an outside view.


Piazza San Michele and Palazzo Pfanner Garden

Leaving the cathedral, continue on to the Piazza San Michele (outside visit only). Located near the ancient Roman Forum, it has remained the centre of town for centuries. Your last stop is at the lovely Palazzo Pfanner Garden, which abuts the city walls and is centred on a large fountain and pool. Upon arrival, you are served prosecco wine and snacks in the garden.


Your tour concludes with some free time for shopping before re-boarding your coach for the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier.



Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and standing for approximately two miles (about 3.2 km) over some cobblestones, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 10 steps at the churches. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended.

Explore the fascinating streets and squares of Lucca during a scenic and memorable half-day tour of this historic medieval city. Lucca endears itself to everyone who visits, hidden behind imposing Renaissance walls with cobbled streets, handsome piazzas and shady promenades; it makes for a perfect destination to explore by foot.


Depart the pier for the approximate 45-minute drive to Lucca. Upon arrival, your tour begins inside the massive red bricks walls, which were built between 1504 and 1645, and are amongst the best-preserved Renaissance defenses in Europe.


Lucca

Lucca is enclosed by massive red brick walls, which help to give the city its special character by shutting out traffic and the modern world. Within these walls, Lucca is a peaceful city of narrow lanes, preserving intact its ancient Roman street plan. Unlike several other Tuscany's cities, Lucca is flat; many locals use bicycles, which impart an additional charm to the city. This memorable outing is ideal for those looking to experience a Tuscan city that is rich in history, art and architecture, but is hidden from the crowds of tourists.


Church of San Michele

Along the way, an outside visit is made to the Church of San Michele in Foro, which stands on the site of the ancient Roman Forum. It has a wonderfully-rich Pisan Romanesque façade that competes in splendour with that of St. Martin.


Guinigi Tower

Another outside visit is then made to the Guinigi Tower, one of many in Lucca that belonged to the Guinigi family, rulers of the city in the 15th century. The tower has a small roof garden, with some trees sprouting incongruously at the top.


Anfiteatro Romano

Next, proceed to the Anfiteatro Romano, formerly the ancient Roman Amphitheatre. Today, it is enclosed by medieval houses that were built up against the walls of the amphitheatre. It's perfectly-preserved shape reminds us that Lucca was founded by the Romans in 180 B.C.


Church of San Frediano

From here, continue on to the Church of San Frediano (outside visit only), which is adorned with a striking façade and a 13th-century mosaic. Inside, there is a splendid Romanesque font and beautiful frescoes. In the chapel dedicated to Santa Zita, her well-preserved body is interred.


Church of San Martino

Your next stop is the Church of San Martino (outside visit only). Lucca's extraordinary cathedral, its façade abuts incongruously on to the campanile. St. Martin is the Roman soldier depicted on the façade dividing his cloak with a sword to share with a needy beggar.


Via Fillungo

The guided portion of your visit concludes at Via Fillungo, Lucca's principal shopping street, which winds its way through the heart of the city towards the Roman Amphitheatre.


Following your walking tour, some free time is made available for exploring the area and browsing the shops at your leisure before re-boarding your coach for the return drive to the pier.



Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 3.5km (2.17 miles), some of which is over cobblestone surfaces, and there are steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. There will be an exterior visit only should a mass be in progress at the church. Guests may be able to enter on an individual basis to view the interior. Tour sequence may vary.

Monuments of Pisa

Experience the historic landmarks and ambiance of Pisa during a memorable, half-day sightseeing excursion to this beautiful city.


Pisa and Campo del Miracoli

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 75-minute drive to Pisa. Upon arrival, proceed on-foot to the Campo del Miracoli, or 'Field of Miracles', Pisa's ecclesiastical centre of the city. Here, the world-renowned Leaning Tower, Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto complete an unrivalled quartet of medieval masterpieces. Nowhere else in Italy are the key buildings of a city arrayed with such precision, and nowhere else is there so beautiful a contrast of stonework and surrounding meadow.


Leaning Tower of Pisa, Duomo and Baptistery

Next, proceed for an exterior visit to the Leaning Tower of Pisa (outside visit only). Its construction dates from the late-12th century, and was completed and topped with a bell-chamber in 1350. A platform of saturated, sandy soil beneath this world-renowned landmark gives it its trademark tilt. From here, head to the Duomo, built in 1064 in the archetypical Pisan Romanesque style. A visit is then made to the Baptistery. A bizarre mix, its three storeys of Romanesque arcades peak in a crest of Gothic pinnacles, and its dome is shaped like the stalk of a lemon.


Piazza dei Cavalieri and Palazzo dell'Orologio

Leaving the Campo dei Miracoli, continue on to the Piazza dei Cavalieri. One of Pisa's most interesting sites, the Piazza dei Cavalieri was the central civic square of medieval Pisa. This large square opens unexpectedly from the narrow back streets, and includes the site of the Roman Forum. Your last stop is at the Renaissance-adapted Palazzo dell'Orologio. Your tour concludes with some free time for independent exploration before returning to the coach and commencing the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.8 miles (about three kilometres), at times over uneven and cobblestone surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 10 steps at the churches. Walking in Pisa is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Proper attire is required to enter the Cathedral; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. On Sundays and religious holidays, inside visits of cathedrals and churches are not possible due to religious services in progress. This tour includes an exterior visit to the Leaning Tower only. Recently re-opened, admittance to the Tower is strictly limited and not possible on this excursion. The tour sequence may vary. The time spent at certain venues may be expanded/reduced, and other brief stops may be added.
