A tour through the famous city of Pisa and the historical centre of Lucca

This tour is a wonderful way to discover two of Tuscany's most iconic centres on a day trip from Florence. The day trip takes you not only to the famous city of Pisa, where you can see the iconic Leaning Tower, but also takes you to the charming city of Lucca, which is surrounded by historic city walls.

Upon arrival in Lucca, your tour escort will take you on a pleasant walk along the famous 16th century walls that encapsulate the city and offer stunning views of the surrounding mountain scenery. You will then enter into the enchanting historical centre, where you will have the chance to admire the charming Piazza Anfiteatro, the Torre Guinigi (which has a famous tower-top tree garden with an intriguing story behind it), the Duomo di San Martino and the quaint shopping streets, where you will have some free time to browse for gifts.

After discovering charming Tuscan life in Lucca, this tour takes you to the historical town of Pisa, renowned for its architectural masterpieces. Upon arrival in Pisa you will have some free time for lunch and will then enjoy a guided walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli, with the celebrated Leaning Tower (exterior tour), the Baptistery (exterior tour) and other important monuments. This is followed by a visit to the interior of the Cathedral, an unrivalled masterpiece of Romanesque art constructed between the 11th and 12th centuries.

There will also be free time at your disposal in Pisa. Those who are interested can take a pleasant walk with our tour escort to Piazza dei Cavalieri, where you can admire the historic Scuola Normale, one of the most famous universities in the world.
