    Itinerary

    Begin your adventure from the Florentine city of Piazza Stazione heading towards the Tuscan town of Pisa and Lucca.

    Walking Tour of Pisa

    Start your guided walking tour with the Piazza Dei Miracoli or the Piazza of Miracles – one of the finest architectural pieces in Pisa, recognised for its Medieval art.

    No Pisa tour is complete without a visit to the signature structure of Pisa – the Leaning Tower . A campanile, this freestanding bell tower is the best example of a Romanesque style of architecture. It gets its modern name as the ‘leaning tower’ due to its uncanny tilt caused by land sinkage beneath it. One of the best spots to be creative and click angular photographs!

    You will next be visiting the Cathedral . Standing in the expansive greenery as white as snow, the Cathedral is a Romanesque architectural wonder. Follow your guide around the beautiful marble facades of the Cathedral.

    As the walking tour ends, you will have some free time to explore on your own, shopping or clicking pictures till it's time to board the coach.

    Walking Tour of Lucca

    Follow your guide into Lucca for a pleasant walk along the famous 16th century Renaissance walls enclosing the city centre. Stroll through the cobblestone streets into Piazza Anfiteatro - a bustling square on the northeastern side of the centre.

    Enjoy sights of the famous Torre Guinigi . Amongst the last remaining Guinigi towers, these 125-foot tower houses were built with roof gardens in 1384. See the Duomo di San Martino or the Lucca Cathedral dedicated to Saint Martin. After that, walk gazing through old antiques and artefacts on the typical dealers street.

    The tour comes to a sweet end after a refreshing and relishing pastry tasting at a historic downtown café. You will get some free time for exploring and clicking pictures after which the coach will head back to Florence. You will be dropped back to the same pick-up point.
