The aquarium is located in the old port, where you can also see the Neptune Galleon, a replica of the ship used in Roman Polanski's Pirates movie. You can purchase the ticket at the aquarium itself.

Some notable places are thePlaza de Ferrari, the Doge's Palace, the Royal Palace and the Plaza de San Mateo.

Practical tips

Useful tips on your free visit to Florence or Pisa

  • Most monuments in Florence and Pisa require an entrance ticket. We recommend that if you go on your own, you book them online well in advance so you don't miss anything and avoid long lines.
  • Although there are those who are encouraged to see both cities on a single cruise stopover, our recommendation is that you do not do it. This way you will not be able to visit the most emblematic monuments of Florence, a city of art and culture that requires time. It is better to know a city well than to visit two cities without seeing almost anything.
  • Trains in Italy may not be punctual or suffer last minute cancellations. Try to get your return ticket to the port with enough time to avoid possible disappointments. Please note that the cruise will leave the port at the scheduled time without exceptions.

Practical tips

Visit Rome on your MSC Seaview cruise stopover

If you have never visited Rome, it is difficult on a cruise stop to see everything. It is advisable to choose if you prefer to see the Vatican, tour the city or visit the Colosseum. Please note that visits to the interior of the Vatican and the Colosseum take time and there are usually queues, especially in high season. It is better to go at your own pace than to try to cover too much and see nothing.
