See the Baptistery, the Duomo and the city’s most iconic attraction, the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa.

  • Day trip to Pisa and Lucca from Florence, led by your tour leader
  • Enjoy a walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa’s famous central square
  • Strike a pose for photos outside Pisa Baptistry and the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • Visit Pisa Duomo and gaze in awe at the cathedral’s impressive interior and sculptures
  • Spend the afternoon in Lucca and see Piazza dell ‘Anfiteatro, Guinigi Tower and Lucca Cathedral
  • Savor a sample of Lucca’s buccellato cake after a walking tour of the Tuscan city
Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll hop aboard your coach and journey west to Pisa with your local guide.

Arrive at the central square of Piazza dei Miracoli, and hop out to explore by foot. Your guide will lead you on a walking tour past the Baptistery, where you can admire its mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Afterward, head to the city’s iconic attraction: the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. Originally intended as a bell tower to accompany the Duomo, hear how the monument began its famous tilt in the 12th century.

Head inside the stunning Duomo cathedral to study the carved pulpit, a masterwork of medieval sculpture, as well as other features of the ornate interior. Then soak up some free time to explore on your own.

After reuniting with your guide, continue to the city of Lucca, one of the lesser-known jewels of Tuscany and home to an impressive collection of Etruscan ruins and Renaissance architecture.

Take off on a walking tour of the city, following your guide to see the Piazza dell ‘Anfiteatro, Lucca Cathedral and Guinigi Tower as you hear tales of their history. Treat your taste buds with a sample of buccellato, Lucca’s ring-shaped cake, before exploring independently for a bit.

Your day trip will conclude with drop-off back in central Florence.

Our guide Claudia was wonderful! Helpful, information, interesting.
But, from Bar Reale we walked a quarter mile at least to get to the bus. Pisa was packed with people posing as tourists trying to steal from the bags of unsuspecting people. Also there were men in the shopping area constantly coming up trying to sell something. Even the shop owners under the tents swarmed us to try to get us to spend money. Pizza and gelato were quite good at the meeting place Claudia told us about. Another good trek to the bus lot. Lucca was charming, but we didn’t enter the cathedral. It was also about 90 degrees so that made it difficult, odd for June. No shade in Pisa. Other than climb the tower and go into the baptistery and church, not much to do in Pisa.

Our visti was too long in Pisa not much to see after taking pics of leaning tower just alot of touristy vendors in front but other that Pisa leaning tower this is a one and done. Lucca was great but tour should have started there and allowed more time then gone to Pisa.
