Hop in a luxury minivan in Florence and relax on a 1-hour journey to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Pisa, where a driver will show you the most important square in town. Then you will be led to Lucca to see the Piazza Anfiteatro, Guinigi Tower, St. Martin’s Cathedral and the typical street of antique shops.
Piazza dei Miracoli with the Leaning Tower, the Baptistery, the Cemetery and the Cathedral, is a real jewel of Romanesque architecture: the magnificence of the square will overwhelm you as you pass through Porta Nuova, one of the ancient gates of the Medieval city walls.
Driving towards Lucca across San Giuliano Terme, you'll enjoy the beautiful plain surrounded by mountains and hills scattered with ancient castles, villas and picturesque villages.
The enchanting Lucca, hidden within its original towering walls and renowned for its art and Renaissance style was one of the main stations on the pilgrims' route to Rome (the Via Francigena). It is also the birthplace of Puccini. Nowadays it offers the visitor an astonishing variety of artworks, delicious food specialties, and typical handicrafts.
