What You Can Expect
Hop out of your coach at Piazza dei Miracoli, the central square that’s home to a cluster of Pisa’s best-known sights. Admire the façade of Pisa Baptistry — one of Italy’s largest baptisteries — from the outside, and hear about its blend of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Then, follow your tour leader to the Leaning Tower of Pisa for photos and to learn about its famous tilt.
Designed as a bell tower to complement Pisa Duomo, the monument began to shift on its foundations in the 12th century, before architects had even completed its first three tiers. The tilt of the tower was halted, but the landmark still leans at an intriguing angle and draws visitors from around the world.
Continue to the neighboring Pisa Duomo, and head inside the cathedral to marvel at its elaborately designed interior, seeing highlights such as the nave, pulpit and various sculptures. After your tour of Pisa Duomo, enjoy some free time to enjoy lunch (own expense).
Meet back up with your tour leader at the prearranged time, and continue by coach to the nearby city of Lucca. The Tuscan jewel is lesser known than Pisa or Florence, but you’ll find it to be equally enchanting with an array of Renaissance architecture and Etruscan ruins.
On a walking tour of the city, explore beautiful Piazza dell ‘Anfiteatro and see Guinigi Tower as well as Lucca Cathedral, built to celebrate St Martin. Stop for photos outside both of the landmarks, hear tales of their history, and then finish the walking tour with a sample of buccellato, Lucca’s ring-shaped cake. After some free time to explore, return to your coach and finish your day with a drop-off at Piazza Adua in central Florence.
We had an absolutely excellent experience. Our guide, Valentina, was knowledgeable, fun, and very competent. The bus itself was pleasant, and everything from departure to arrival back in Florence went as expected and according to schedule. This is excellent value for the money, and our family considered it a day very well spent.
This tour was amazing!
The trip was fantastic as it brings us to PISA and Lucca, but if you would want to explore the entire PISA, the trip may be too short for you to do everything, and you should pre book ur tickets to go up of the tower of PISA if you are planning to go up there....
Still a good day trip and I would recommend you to do it if you are in florence!
We did this tour with a little baby and found everyone very helpful. The half day in Pisa was enough time to see the monuments, get pics with the leaning tower and to have lunch. If you want to climb the the tower, you need to book online first. Lucca was a nice little gem. An enjoyable afternoon
The guides in both cities were well informed and provided a real insight into the two cities. The guide in Lucca, who was extremely good, walked round the city as if on her own which was a little concerning at times.
Overall, highly recommend!
