Pisa and Lucca are two of Tuscany’s most-visited cities. Take a full day-trip from Florence and discover these two charming towns and its famous attractions including the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Pisa and Lucca Day Trip Itinerary
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel a little before 9 am and you’ll head to Pisa, 85 km away, on an air-conditioned coach.
Once in Pisa, follow your guide through the city’s beautiful piazzas and winding streets and discover the town’s history while you walk along the Piazza dei Miracoli, admiring the Baptistry, the Cemetery and the Cathedral.
After the guided tour of the Cathedral, you’ll have time to explore the city at your own pace and you can climb to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
After discovering Pisa, you’ll head to Lucca, where you’ll be guided to the magnificent old town, wandering through its piazzas and alleyways and along a section of its still intact walls. Some of the top attractions include the Anfiteatro Square, the Torre Giunigi and San Martino Cathedral.
Lucca also has several impressive medieval towers and a city wall which still stands intact.
Before taking the coach back to Florence, you’ll go on a Buccellato tasting, a typical Lucchese cake with an almond filling.
