|Tour Pisa and Lucca
After meeting at the port we will reach Pisa (30 min drive) through the old Aurelia
Way flanked with hundreds of “umbrella” pine trees and a striking
view of the Alpi Apuane and the white marble quarries. We will visit Piazza dei
Miracoli & The Leaning Tower (opportunity to climb the Tower, takes 30 min
pre booking recommended). We will drive through Piazza dei Cavalieri where the
famous Scuola Normale Superiore founded by Napoleon is located and then we will
head Lucca. While approaching Lucca we will have the opportunity to visit Villa
Torrigiani dated back to 16th century, one of the most spectacular property in
the whole area and its French- stile garden (visit takes 30 min, entrance €
9.00). Then we will reach the center of Lucca.
Lucca has a very rich history and is one of the most interesting Tuscan towns:
born as a roman colony, during the 16th century has been completely surrounded
by walls becoming a real fortress. During the Napoleonic era Lucca was occupied
by the French and became the Principality of Elisa (Napoleon sister). You will
start the walking tour through the most important sites: the famous wall, the
roman amphitheater, San Michele Church, the Duomo , Piazza Napoleone, etc.
Note: some itineraries may require extensive walking activity
with steps, inclines,
cobblestones or rough ground.
