Why Choose It?
- Ascend the Leaning Tower of Pisa for sweeping views of the city.
- Discover the true Tuscan treasure of little-known Lucca.
- Immerse yourself in Tuscan culture with a knowledgeable local guide.
Florence has no shortage of cultural treasures. But so many travelers know about them that the Renaissance city can get very crowded. That’s why we’ve designed this day-trip: so you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city to explore two of Tuscany’s less-visited wonders.
Your private Pisa and Lucca tour transports you through the Tuscan countryside to visit Florence’s great historical rival: Pisa. You’ll visit the vertically challenged Leaning Tower of Pisa where – subject to advanced reservation and availability – you’ll climb its dizzying heights. After wandering the Piazza of Miracles, we’ll make our way to the enchanting walled town of Lucca where you’ll be treated to an authentic taste of Tuscan life.
Visit the vertically challenged Leaning Tower of Pisa
All travelers in Tuscany aspire to make a stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Yet few people ever get to go inside and climb it. This is what we can organise for you with advanced reservation and subject to the availability of priority tickets (which we’ll communicate to you long before your tour).
It’s no wonder this 14th century tower attracts so much attention. With its winding stairwell of nearly 300 steps, and disorientating lean of five degrees, this architectural freak of nature has simultaneously intrigued and baffled visitors for centuries. The Leaning Tower is quite safe, for now! Just don’t rule out an impromptu reenactment of Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” while you’re up there.
Explore the aptly named Piazza of Miracles
As you might expect from one of the Mediterranean’s most powerful medieval city-states, Pisa boasts a remarkable architectural legacy. Its 12th century Duomo easily rivals those of Florence and Siena equivalents. Towering over the piazza are four colonnaded levels of white stone and dark-grey marble, while inside the Duomo’s richly ornate interior are such resplendent artworks as an apse mosaic by Cimabue.
Another unmissable attraction on the Piazza of Miracles is the Pisa Baptistery of Saint John. Completed in 1363, this part-Romanesque, part-Gothic marble structure is a true visual feast. As the largest baptistery in Italy, its interior architecture is overwhelming. Though stripped of ornamentation, it boasts an incredible colonnaded dome and 13th century pulpit.
Journey across Tuscany and wander the Lucca City Walls
The walled medieval town of Lucca is as enchanting as it is unpresumptuous, still largely undiscovered by Tuscany’s hundreds of thousands of visitors. If you’re looking for an authentic taste of Tuscan life in a traditional countryside city, Lucca is the perfect destination.
Lucca has no shortage of things do see. But as with all Italian cities, it’s well worth whiling away a few hours exploring its quirky medieval streets and alleyways at your leisure, popping into its shops, bars, and artisan gelaterias as and when the moment takes you. One unmissable experience is seeing Lucca from above which you can do by walking or cycling its Renaissance walls which still completely encircle the city.
Marvel at the Romanesque Church of San Michele in Foro
Lucca is home to the wealth of churches you’d expect from any Italian city. But by far the most beautiful is the Church of San Michele in Foro. Standing on the site of Lucca’s Roman Forum, San Michele is a stunning example of Tuscan Romanesque architecture. Its 11th century facade is impossibly ornate: exhibiting perhaps the finest example of its kind anywhere in Italy.
Explore the Piazza of the Amphitheater
Roman history runs deep in the stunning city of Lucca. It was here, in fact, that Julius Caesar, Pompey Magnus, and Crassus formed the famous First Triumvirate in 56 BC. Like Rome, Lucca boasts many Roman sites underlying the medieval street plan. And the most intriguing of all without doubt is the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro (Amphitheater Piazza).
As is apparent from the shape, the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro stands above Lucca’s ancient Roman amphitheater. Like Piazza Navona in Rome, the modern square derives its shape entirely from the structure that underlies it. It was a big beast, once able to accommodate some 10,000 spectators. Envisage the gladiatorial spectacles that would have once taken place here as you explore this charming piazza. Then wander onto one of its nearby streets to indulge in a well deserved gelato or aperitivo.

Then we walked through the market to pick out some of the ingredients, the meats and such. Then we went back to their excellent small group kitchen. We had a wonderful time learning from Sara. She taught us to make ravioli and saltimbocca and tiramisu. It was fun and relaxed and extremely delicious. We thought the whole experience was splendid. 10 out of 10. read less - 9/26/2022

We got to try a ton of different food and even returned to one of the restaurants later in the week. The tour groups are kept small, so our group easily got to know each other throughout the tour. We were especially pleased with how accommodating it was: My fiance is a vegetarian and can be a bit of a picky eater, so he had low expectations going in and this ended up being his favorite activity all week! We actually had a couple of vegetarians in our group and there was always an equally hearty substitute whenever necessary. Super pleased with this experience and with Luca! Best part of our week! read less - 9/21/2022

A great evening with plenty of incredible local food and drink and a really good way to meet and get to know other travellers. The small group size made it much more personal and conversation flowed all evening! Sara (our guide) was absolutely amazing - so friendly and chatty, and so full of knowledge about the local food and Rome/Trastevere's history. She could not have been better.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less - 9/21/2022

His knowledge of Italian cuisine was exceptional, especially welcomed because it included more than just the well known dishes. He was funny and friendly, making our time together unforgettable.
Most appreciated was his offer to remain a resource for the duration of our visit with DELICIOUS recommendations off the tourist path.

This was my third time to the Vatican but this time I took my adult/teen children and wife and we used a tour guide. It was a small group of 9. Just 2 families. She was great. She does this 4 days a week and all the guards knew her by name. If you want to see the Sistine Chapel, then you have to go early. We were one of the first to enter and with her connections basically did not wait on anything. We also entered a section in the Vatican Museums usually off limits to the public, a section with many animal statues and other mosaics. She gave us so much history and culture. My children said it was AP World History made real. You could tell she truly loved what she did. read less - 8/29/2022

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022
