The current Excursion bubble that is forced on the cruise industry by Italy is very annoying. We could not shop or even talk to the locals. It was very heart wrenching to walk by the stalls with our money, rather than gifting the locals with some of the abundance.
Left our excursion because it was terrible and did our own thing. We went to Pisa on our own and enjoyed it. Half of our excursion group parted ways with the group within an hour of it starting because it was that bad.

A generic port that we only saw going to and from the railway station. We took ourselves to visit the Cinque Terre towns by train. Very easy to do and well worth it. They all have their own charm and beauty.

We took an excursion from the port to Cinque Terre...three little fishing villages. This was definitely more our style. Once the guide finished her talk, she set us free in the villages for about an hour. We usually found a nice little cafe and enjoyed the local wines. Lovely day for us at the exact pace we like. We can't say we liked having to get to the little towns by train...given the virus scare...but we were vigilant about hand sanitizer.

We had a tour guide for this day ! And she was good but didn’t speak too much. The river boat cruise we did was amazing !! We got to see The leaning tower of Pisa too which was honestly amazing and a great experience !

Two hour journey to get to Florence for two hours, and then two hour journey back - prepared to be shattered by the time you get back. Florence is lovely, but two hours doesn't give you enough time.

don't limit your visit to just Pisa - there is so much more in this area
