We had a blast seeing the leaning tower and ate at some good places. It was funny, on one side of the tower it looked straight in one of our pics. So much fun.
Hired a taxi at the port to take us to Florence - much more affordable than booking through the cruise line.

We shared a large taxi with 4 other guests (who we hadn't previously met) who took us to Florence and left us for 4 hours. Driver, who was very friendly and spoke excellent English then picked us up and took us to Pisa for an hour before returning us the ship. Good value at 50 Euros each. Could have taken 8 passengers at 320 euros. Taxi wasn't wheelchair accessible, but I was able to transfer in and out reasonably well, although it was a little high and wheelchair was put in back. We'd been recommended to look out for this taxi service who were prominently located just inside terminal building. Well worth visiting Florence and glad I went to Pisa, although nothing else there other than some leaning tower which you have to see.

While sitting in the port on wifi catching up with family a small group were looking for extra people to make up the 8 needed to hire a taxi at a reasonable rate to go to Pisa and Florence. Joined them for 50 Euro each return. Florence has amazing statues - some were right up there with the ones we saw in Rome. Our driver showed us where to meet him and left us to do our own thing for 2.5 hours. Lots of lovely leather shops, the usual souvenir shops and more amazing statues. Met our driver as planned and off to Pisa where he left us for 1.5 hours to look around, grab some food. Pisa was OK, the churches were more interesting than the tower I thought, however there was a LONG line to get into the church. Not as busy as I expected, plus there was actually quite a bit of room to walk around.

We visited the Cinque Terra (Five Lands) which includes Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. We had a blast visiting each village. I think our favorite was Riomaggiore where we had a fabulous lunch and Monterosso - best choice-hazelnut gelato - EVER!
Did the San Gimignano and San Donato farm excursion through NCL. Loved it! It was a smaller tour only 12 of us were in the group- I suspect this is partially due to cost and I imagine many folks would have chosen to do the wine tour which included Pisa and similar price point. We chose this one specifically hoping it would be a bit smaller and less touristy. Beautiful drive through the country side up to the town of San Gimignano. We had about 2hrs to wander around this cute little town- which was perfect- grabbed a snack, enjoyed the scenery did some shopping. Then it was on to San Donato farm- we had a fabulous buffet lunch there. All the food is from the local area if not produced at San Donato, so tasty. Wine was quite enjoyable- I would have preferred a structured wine tasting (our group was reluctant to end lunch we were having such a good time eating, drinking and chatting- it's possible a formal tasting was scrapped due to time constraints)- we were able to try any of their wines if we wanted.
