Pisa, Lucca and Forte dei Marmi

Code: JFLR004


One of Joe Banana's English speaking drivers will meet you at your accommodation in Florence for this relaxing day tour! 

Your private driver will then chauffeur you to the first of the three towns you will be visiting: Pisa.  A Roman colony from the 2nd century B.C., a naval and commercial port, Pisa became a maritime republic in the Middle Ages, rivaling Genova, Amalfi and Venice.  Your private driver/guide will take you to Campo dei Miracoli, a large, grassy piazza featuring Pisa's cathedral, the baptistery, the cemetery and Pisa's most famous landmark, the Leaning Tower. You will have time to explore this beautiful square and admire the amazing architecture.

After this, you will continue on to the famous fortress town of Lucca, located in the northern part of Tuscany. Lucca, one of the most charming of Tuscany's provincial capitals, is set inside a ring of well-preserved Renaissance walls. Amazingly, the wall has a path along the top that is wide enough to hold small parks.   

Lucca is a MUST see city during your time in Italy due to its many beautiful churches, piazzas, and characteristic shops and restaurants. Like most cities in Italy it still shows Roman roots and style. Lucca's defensive walls are perfectly preserved and entering the town will feel like stepping back into the past. 

Lucca is also famous as Giacomo Puccini's birthplace, his home, located in the center of town, is open to visitors. 

After Lucca, you will drive to the beautiful resort town of Forte dei Marmi situated facing the most southern part of the Ligurian Sea. Here you will have about 2 hours to enjoy the area, established as a highly desirable vacation destination for prominent families residing in northern Italy during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, it is the allure of the sea’s beauty which continues to draw people to this seaside town. 

After this unforgettable day you will drive back to your accommodation in Florence. 

If we start the tour at 8.00/8.30 am you will be back by 5.00/5.30 pm.
