This tour lasts approximately 7 hours.
Lucca & Pisa is the perfect combination for those wanting a satisfying but
shorter tour day. Lucca, with its handsome architecture and impressive
ancient walls, also boasts an excellent culinary tradition. In Pisa, we’ll
drive you right up to the Leaning Tower so you can enjoy the whole
“Field of Miracles” with minimal wear and tear on your feet!
Lucca (40 minutes from Livorno)
After a brief drive from port, you will be met by Lucca’s imposing exterior walls, the top of which has been transformed into a unique urban greenspace for pedestrians where you can walk or rent bikes to enjoy the scene.
We will take you to such architectural attractions as Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, site of a former Roman amphitheater, and the many interesting churches featuring bold, striped designs and intricate facades dating back to the 13th Century.
Art lovers will want to take a few minutes see the sculpture of Ilaria del Carretto, deemed the most beautiful funerary monument in Italy and a work of art to compare with Michelangelo’s David.
On foot you can:
If going on foot is difficult for some members of your party, we can take you through the winding old narrow streets by car (a privilege in this pedestrian-only centre).
Pisa (30 minutes from Lucca)
In the “Field of Miracles” you will find not only the world’s most famous bell tower but also the cathedral, baptistery and cemetery — all remarkable. Lovers of horticulture may wish to visit the exceptional 500 year old botanical gardens.
Make sure to bring your camera and see how creative you can be “holding up” the Leaning Tower! You can climb the Tower if you wish.
OPTIONAL, additional fee, must be pre-booked; children under 8 not permitted to climb.
NOTE: The order of the day can be reversed, especially if you want to climb the Tower or visit the botanical gardens in the hotter months.
