THE WINE AND OLIVE OIL IN THE TERRE DI PISA AREA
Arianna & Friends offers a relaxing full-day tour to two wonderful destinations in the Terre di Pisa area just a few miles from Livorno: an extra virgin olive oil mill and a local winery. Learn how to make the best extra virgin olive oil and wine!
Details of our shore excursion:
– Private transfer by minivan (for up to 8 people) or minibus (for 9 people or more) from the port of Livorno. In case of minivan our driver meets you directly at the ship in the morning and drives you for the whole day. In case of minibus our driver meets you at a bus parking area near the ship that you will reach by a fast free shuttle service organized by the port. On the way back the mininus will drop you off directly by the ship.
– Within just 45 minutes drive you reach an authentic olive mill in the Terre di Pisa area where you meet our local and knowledgeable tour guide. Upon a little surcharge, our guide can meet you at the harbour. After an introduction to the world of the extra virgin olive oil, the guide will lead you inside the olive mill where he will explain you in depth all the steps of the olive oil production and all the secrets to make the best oil.
– After that we will seat at the table and we will enjoy an olive oil blind test to compare a traditional olive oil from Tuscany vs a commercial one. You will be also invited to try the extra virgin and the flavoured oils of the farm.
– After the visit to the olive mill we will drive to a local winery, just few km from the mill. Here we will meet the winemaker who will lead us inside the winery. You will visit the fermentation room, the barrels rooms and you will learn all the secrets to produce the best wines! At the end of the visit yo will seat at the table and you will enjoy a guided wine tasting session with local snacks;
– A Tuscan lunch at one of the two premises is also included!
– Return within the early evening, depending on the docking time of the cruiseship.

This is a message of appreciation for a unique shore excursion we arranged for a group of newzealanders!
A quick email to thank you for such a lovely day we had on Tuesday.
I think it was the highlight of our cruise and probably was for most of the others as well. People on the cruise were asking us where we had been and I think they were rather jealous of us!
Once we return to New Zealand I will write a report on trip advisor.
Thanks again and kind regards,
Diana and Ian
