Upon arrival at La Spezia, your English speaking driver and guide will meet you at the docks to take you on this 9 hour trip. This is a full day tour, so the earlier you can get on the road, the better.
The trip from La Spezia port to Pisa, your first stop, is about an hour. When you get to Pisa, you’ll arrive at the Square of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli) where you’ll see the Duomo Cathedral, the very round and outstanding Baptistery, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Campo Santo. These combined together form the nexus of the tourist attractions in Pisa and are a very good example of roman architecture.
Interested tourists can also climb the Leaning Tower – reservations are best made before the trip itself- and feel the “lean” as you climb its winding stairs. Other attractions in Pisa include the cathedral museum, which you can check out independently. Upon completion of the first leg of the tour in Pisa, your driver will suggest an excellent place where you can get some real Tuscan lunch.
Once you’re done, your driver will then take you on the next leg –a half hour drive- of the tour to the city of Lucca.
Fun Fact: Lucca is the birthplace of renowned composer Puccini
In Lucca, you will explore the market square, Piazza del Mercato whose irregular shape is courtesy of the amphitheater that was once in its place. Then proceed to see the Torre Guinigi with the oak tree on top of it.
This is one of Lucca’s most outstanding attractions. While at the top of the monument, you can take an aerial view of the city below, and enjoy the scenic sights. Once you’re done, come down and walk the medieval streets of Lucca, whilst observing the locals at work.
Romanesque architecture buffs will like the Church of San Michele’s marble façade, the mosaic filled Basilica of San Frediano, the Cathedral of San Martino, and Puccini’s house which has been converted into a museum.
Those interested in a more active tour, can rent bikes and tour the city walls on their bikes. If you’ve got extra time on your hands, your driver will take you outside the city to admire the luxurious Villa Torrigiani and beautiful gardens of the Villa Mansi
After this, your driver will take you back straight to the port of La Spezia where you can board your cruise ship.
