Pisa and Lucca PRIVATE TOUR from Florence

- No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Pisa, home of Galileo Galilei and the Leaning Tower. The grandeur of this ancient, Maritime Republic is reflected in the Square of Miracles, where the tower is enveloped by the Cathedral, Baptistry and Monumental Cemetery. A climb to the top of the tower confirms the surrounding splendor.

- Discover Lucca, originally Etruscan, turned Roman colony in 180 B. C. The wealth of its history can still be found in a visit to the ruins of its Roman Amphitheater, the Guinigi Tower and a walk on the walls that once protected it from outside invasion. An enemy to Florence until 1328 and temporary site of exile to Dante, this charming town provides an enchanting backdrop to a meal, a walk and certain adventure.
