===By car===
Autostrada A12, uscita ''Livorno''; for maps and tolls see: [http://www.autostrade.it/] (no pages in English as per 14 November 2004).
===By bus===
If hoping for maximum time in Florence...
* Take an ''early'' cab (perhaps shared with another couple) from your ship to and from the Livorno train station.
* At the station, ask for a train that goes to the Firenze Santa Maria Novella. Locals will happily help. For a complete article see [http://www.ftroute.com/liv_fir_liv.htm].
==Get around==
Bus number 1 is a shuttle from train station to the port and vice-versa. Ticket for one hour of travel is 1,00 Euros, daily ticket is 3,20 Euros. For self-reliant cruise passengers, this is part of the most economical way to reach trains to Pisa and Florence. A map is online [http://www.atl.livorno.it/tiposerv.html].

===Splurge===
==Get out==
Livorno is a good starting point and base for a tour of Tuscany. You can reach [[Pisa]] in half an hour, [[Lucca]] and [[Florence]] in somewhat over an hour. (See note under "Get in" "By Boat" above). In a well-organized day you can tour by car from a hotel in Livorno...you might sample ''[[Chianti]]-side'', [[Monteriggioni]], [[San Gimignano]], [[Siena]] and [[Volterra]] and be back for dinner. However, return before by expected time for a cruise ship departure could be quite problematic.
