Florence may seem a surprising port-of-call, given that it’s located an hour inland from the sea. Azamara Club Cruises®’ longer stays in port (often two full days in Livorno) make it possible to see the Uffizi and other sights and still have time to wander and soak in the atmosphere.
The Italian art of "il dolce far niente" (that is, roughly, sweet idleness) can only be experienced when you aren’t worried your ship will leave without you. For other passengers, those extra hours in port mean a chance to golf some of Europe’s most challenging courses. Guests on the British Open voyage in 2015 will be able to scratch off an item on every golfer’s bucket list when they attend the 144th British Open championship at the Old Course St. Andrews.
