If Florence is a deja-vu (although I bet I could still surprise you with sites, stories and experiences, no matter how many times you’ve seen Florence) I will help you discover two jewels of Tuscany with a private guided tour of Lucca and Pisa for cruise passengers. This full day tour is perfect if you don’t want to spend much time on a coach as both cities are very close to the port of Livorno, so you will arrive quickly at the destination. It’s also the ideal tour for those who don’t want to walk a lot, as Pisa and Lucca are small centers. You can choose to reach these two cities on your own and meet the guide on spot, or you may have an English speaking driver meet you at the pier of Livorno or La Spezia.
We will arrive shortly in the main square of Pisa, Piazza dei Miracoli - Miracles Square - where the famous Leaning Tower is. With the help of your local guide you will learn the fascinating history of this amazing square whose monuments have always been considered as a miracle of beauty! You won’t see the Leaning Tower only, as Miracles Square is a complex with a good four monuments which were built one next to the other with the intention of glorifying the city when it was a powerful maritime republic. The square boasts a wonderful XIth century Cathedral, the famous Leaning Tower, the Monumental Cemetery and the Baptistery. If you want to know more about the history and the art of Pisa your guided tour may also include the ancient Jewish Cemetery or the Sinopie Museum.
A restorative lunch will wait for you in one of the many Trattorias of the center where you can taste many delicious local dishes and enjoy the local wine. After lunch your tour of Lucca will take you through the fascinating Medieval streets of the center, you will have the chance to walk on top of the city walls and you will see the iconic Amphitheatre Square, a 2000 year old square and a symbol of Lucca. Our private tour of Pisa and Lucca for cruise passengers will also include time for shopping. You will have plenty of choice in Lucca where you will find, beside the most famous Italian stores, many local leather, food and wine, and silk shops.
