All Livorno Cruise Port Reviews

Introduction to Livorno

Livorno is an industrial port, which at first glance may not seem to be the most appealing town in Tuscany. Yet, the City Centre has a few charming attractions. But the reason why cruise lines include this port in Mediterranean itineraries is to visit Florence and Pisa. Besides these two world-renowned cities, you may also explore hidden treasures of Tuscany such as Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, or Cinque Terre – cities which are 30 to 90 minutes away by bus, car, or train. If you prefer to stay in town, there are quite a few things to see and do in Livorno.

FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

What if it rains during the tour in Porto?

Fortunately or unfortunately, rainy weather in Porto is NOT rare, so the chance of rain on the day of the planned excursion is quite high. Usually, if it’s not raining outside, we put on raincoats or take umbrellas and walk in spite of the weather (these things need to be taken care of in advance). In case of heavy rain, the guide can offer an alternative route – in Porto, as a city of art, there are a huge number of galleries, cultural centers, museum houses and palaces. Sometimes a trip to the wine cellars makes up for the bad weather. Alternatively, you can rent a tuk-tuk or combine a walking tour with tram, cable car or river taxi rides.

Which cities have excursions from Porto?

If we are talking about short excursions up to 4 hours, then these are towns and villages in the vicinity of Porto, in particular, Vila Nova De Gaia and Afurada. On tours from 5 hours, we offer excursions to the Algarve, Guimarães, Chaves, Lisbon, Aveiro and surroundings. The big tour from Porto to Lisbon includes a visit to Batalha and Tomar, and their main attractions.

We offer several themed tours to the Douro valley and the Peneda-Gerês park.

Which excursions are suitable for children?

By and large, any, the main thing is to warn the guide that there are children in the group. By the way, Joan Rowling, the best-selling author of Harry Potter books, lived in Porto for a long time, so Porto may be a priori interesting for children from this point of view. The guide will also try to build the itinerary in such a way that “boring chatter” is combined with activities for children or tasting local sweets. For example, a walk through the historical center can include a trip to the most beautiful bookstore in the world, Lello, or a confectionery for pastel (pastel de nata pastry), and a boat or cable car ride can be added to a sightseeing tour.

Coming for a few days?
We will come up with the perfect route for you!


Colorful excursions in Porto from professional guides. Northern and majestic, severe and aristocratic, but so beautiful Porto is a port city in Portugal. And it’s 100% on the “Must visit” list. Porto is special: on the one hand, it is washed by the waves of the ocean, and on the other hand, it is surrounded by the beautiful nature of Portugal. Porto keeps its originality, audacity and its own unique style.

Porto Historic Center – inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Only here you can get acquainted with the cathedrals that have been preserved since the 12th century, and enjoy the architecture of the Gothic style with elements of the Baroque.

Sightseeing tours in Porto are thought out to the smallest detail so that you not only get to know the city in a short time, but also learn its history (which, by the way, is very interesting and self-sufficient). You will walk along the narrow and very labyrinthine streets, be inspired by the era of chivalry, take hundreds of cool photos on beautiful viewing platforms, see ancient sights and huge underground cellars of wineries.

And yet, only our guide in Porto will explain why half of the buildings in the city seem abandoned and teach you how to drink port wine correctly. By the way, Porto gave the name not only to the famous drink, but to the whole country, and we will tell this story.

Walking around Porto should definitely include exploring the ocean coast: amazing picturesque landscapes, “as in the picture” beaches and a leisurely life of a resort town surrounded by the cutest villages.

Choose for yourself – an excursion for a few hours or a couple of days. We will select a program and your acquaintance with Porto will grow into a strong friendship, because the city simply captivates with its almost magical atmosphere.

If you are looking for excursions in Portugal and directly in Porto, you have come to the right place. We have gathered the best guides who not only live here and know all the secrets, but also thoroughly studied the history, traditions and character of this colorful and original region.

    Experienced private guide in Porto Svetlana thoroughly studied the whole country and just fell in love with the north of Portugal. Svetlana, even after several years of living here, never ceases to be surprised by the beauty of the region, friendly people and a special festive atmosphere. Despite the vast experience behind her, Svetlana continues to discover more and more facets of this magnificent city, and is happy to share her observations and knowledge with the guests. The girl does not stop at demonstrating the main “business cards” of Porto, trying to show the non-tourist side of the city, its soul and essence.

    Svetlana has prepared for tourists who want to get to know the magnificent Porto better, two survey programs “Inimitable Porto” and “Porto Photo Walk”, but at the same time she always tries to take into account all the wishes of the guests and adapt the route to them.
