October 17 Livorno Italy

Today would be the start of our Rome in Limo tours. I had researched and knew I wanted to do Rilo tours while in Italy. A year before going Melody on our cruise critic page wanted to do the same. Rome in Limo specialize in luxury car hire and tailor made personalized tours in Rome, and throughout Italy.Melody said she would take charge and in no time we had our group of 8 set for 3 days. Connie from Pennsylvania and Ava her exchange student from Switzerland from 20 years ago. Melody and Dan from Nova Scotia she is a nurse and he owns his own lobster boat. Jack and Lori from Pennsylvania, Lori is Connie's younger sister.We ended up getting along great. Everyone was prompt in getting back at meeting times.

RILO was such a great way to see alot in one day and you could structure what you wanted to see. Sabrina would be our driver for today.Livorno is in the Tuscany region of Italy is ideally located for exploring some of the most beautiful cities in Italy, including Florence and Pisa. Tuscany is made up of hills, fertile valleys and sandy beaches that follow along the West Coast. Pisa is located in the central Italy on the Arno River 12 miles from Livorno. It is most famous for the leaning Tower of Pisa.Sabrina checked what our plans were and we were off to see the leaning Tower of Pisa before all the tour groups arrived.
