What You Can Expect

Pisa and Lucca Day Trip from Florence

Enjoy a walking tour of Lucca in Tuscany!

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll hop aboard your coach and journey west to Pisa with your local guide.

Arrive at the central square of Piazza dei Miracoli, and hop out to explore by foot. Your guide will lead you on a walking tour past the Baptistery, where you can admire its mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Afterward, head to the city’s iconic attraction: the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. Originally intended as a bell tower to accompany the Duomo, hear how the monument began its famous tilt in the 12th century.

Head inside the stunning Duomo cathedral to study the carved pulpit, a masterwork of medieval sculpture, as well as other features of the ornate interior. Then soak up some free time to explore on your own.

After reuniting with your guide, continue to the city of Lucca, one of the lesser-known jewels of Tuscany and home to an impressive collection of Etruscan ruins and Renaissance architecture.

Take off on a walking tour of the city, following your guide to see the Piazza dell ‘Anfiteatro, Lucca Cathedral and Guinigi Tower as you hear tales of their history. Treat your taste buds with a sample of buccellato, Lucca’s ring-shaped cake, before exploring independently for a bit.

Your day trip will conclude with drop-off back in central Florence.

The organizers were most efficient in getting us started, our tour guide, whose name I did not catch and I forgot to ask, was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and explained much about the different towns we were going through. She was quite affable and pleasant. We were turned over to another guide in Pisa, whom was quite engaging and entertaining. A great summary of the buildings and the interior of the Duomo. It was great to wander a bit and enjoy a lovely lunch while feeling like the tower was going to come crashing down! There just didn't seem to be enough time for the steps of the tower, but that was probably more our interpretation of time. Lucca was lovely and again our guide was very informative and engaging. She tried to engage us with questions, which is a brilliant learning opportunity. The Buccellato experience was certainly unique. Be sure to discover more of Anfiteatro and via Fillungo! Highly recommend this tour excellent value for the money.

We went in June at a very hot time of the year. The tour guide was very concerned for all of our safety and comfort. He was very informative and gave us all time to take in everything he pointed out and to take pictures of. Pisa and Lucca both were beautiful, historical and makes me want to go back. Well worth the cost.

This tour was well organised. The coach was comfortable and the driver was good as was the guide. The local guides both in Pisa and Lucca were informative and entertaining. Both cities are well worth visiting.

We love this tour! My mom has mobility issues she can walk with the aid of a walker however at times, needed a wheelchair because there is some walking involved in this tour esp on the Lucca part. It was manageable. Our driver and tour guide were excellent and were always helping my mom.
