Pisa and Lucca

Code: JFLR003


One of Joe Banana's English speaking drivers will meet you at your accommodation in Florence. 

Your day tour will start with about a one hour drive to the first of these two historic towns, 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 containing 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, admire the amazing architecture.

After Pisa, you will continue on to the fortress town of Lucca, the birthplace of composer Giacomo Puccini. Lucca, one of the most charming of Tuscany's provincial capitals, is set inside a ring of well-preserved Renaissance walls. The wall has a path along the top and is wide enough to hold small parks!

Like most cities in Italy, Lucca still shows Roman roots and style. Its defensive walls are perfectly preserved and once you've entered you will feel that you have stepped back into the past.


Lucca is a MUST see city, filled with many characteristic shops and restaurants. You can take your time to enjoy an authentic meal at a local restaurant, explore the area by foot or even choose to rent bicycles from one of the local shops and take a leisurely ride around the area. Whatever you choose to do, you will enjoy your time here.


After this unique excursion you will drive back to your accommodation in Florence.

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