A lot of people try and do this....and it is crazy. Even if you are right on time for your train (there is one train per hour), it will take you an absolute minimum of 2 hours to get from your ship to the train station in Florence. So easily 4 hours travel time return if you DON'T add in Pisa.

Florence is a stunning city, but you really will be limited in what you can see in the short period of time that you will be there. Choose wisely.

Give PIsa a pass........

You cannot do both. Pick one or the other.

Pisa gets a lot of flak but it is worth a couple of hours if you have very limited time. The Tower climb is unique although you should book in advance to guarantee your time slot.

If you have most of the day though, I would opt for Florence.

How time do you have? I would visit Florence. It is much more interesting city. Pisa center is nice(The tower, Duomo, Baptistry), but for me it ends there. Florence is such an amazing city, with so much more to see and do. You only have one day, so you wont be able everything. But just walking to streets, seeing the Duomo there, its impressive tower. The Baptistry Doors, The Porcellino Market ( I love this market. I always find amazing things there) Walk the Ponte Vecchio. I can go on. Which ever you decide, enjoy your time there.

I agree, it will be impossible to visit both and you will only manage to see very little of Florence so leave Pisa for another visit.
