Pisa is of Etruscan origin and was an important naval base for the Romans. Its most celebrated attraction today is the Leaning Tower of Pisa which – along with the Coliseum, gondolas and spaghetti – has become a symbol of Italy. You can visit the “Field of Miracles” and see the Leaning Tower, the cathedral, the “Campo Santo” cemetery, the Baptistery and the cathedral museum. After a lengthy restoration a few years ago, the tower was reopened and you can now go to the top to admire the view. The climb to the summit is an experience in itself, as you can feel the “lean” in the structure while you wind your way towards the peak.
Here you will have the opportunity to stroll through the town, shop, take pictures and have lunch (recommendations will be made on the day).
At the port you will find the driver waiting for you carrying a sign with your name on it. After a 20-minute-drive along the Roman via Aurelia with the Apennines on the horizon, we will arrive to Pisa. Surely you know the Leaning Tower but once you arrive you will discover that this is not the only thing to see in this wonderful city. The Miracle Square can easily be considered one of the most beautiful in the World. Here you can choose to visit the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Monumental Cemetery, the Museums of the Sinopie and Opera, and climb the Leaning Tower, which is about 300 steps high. You will also have time for little shopping at the souvenir market and a coffee break with the real Italian cappuccino and delicious pastry. On our way out we will drive through the Piazza dei Cavalieri. Driving towards North for about half an hour we will arrive to Lucca. Surrounded by its majestic walls you will find Cathedrals, Monuments, Churches, restaurants, all in the relaxing milieu of this beautiful Italian city much less known abroad and yet as beautiful as the famous ones. If you wish, you can have a delicious traditional lunch in a local Trattoria near Lucca. On your way back the driver will show you some of the amazing sights that the Tuscan hills offer. You will be arriving to your hotel or at the port on time.
