Excursions in Tuscany

Traveler reviews

Pisa, during the Middle Age, was for centuries the naval force of Tuscany and its fleets crossed the Mediterranean Sea carring all kinds of products from Tuscan markets to the ports of France, Spain, Portugal but expecially North Africa and Asia. The “Pisani” met the peoples of the Mediterranean importing the distant cultures into Tuscany, the refinement of the Moors, the mathematical intelligence of the Indians. Pisa was so reach and developed to found its University in 1343 AC.

Meanwhile Pisa established colonies, conquered territories and became immensely rich with wars. This happened around 1100 A.C. when its immense Cathedral was built and behind it the Leaning Tower was started on a not so suitable terrain, which would become one of the seven architectural wonders of the World and which is still a destination for many  visitors.

 

In the same period not far from Pisa just beyond a few hills an ancient Roman colony, Lucca, which controlled the way from France to Siena and Rome had grown in wealth thanks to the production of fabrics, especially silk whose technique had been stolen from the Chinese by Venetian merchants. The proximity of the two powers could only give some problems and, in fact, Pisa and Lucca were always adversaries so much so that the Lucchesi preferred to ship its goods from Genoa, hundreds of kilometers away instead of favoring the rival Pisa. Pisa was conquered by Florence in the 16th century while Lucca and its citywalls resisted independent up to 19th century when Napoleon arrived for its Italian Campaign.

 

Today the two cities have remained enchanting, two medieval jewels that have preserved treasures of architecture, art, food and wine that really deserve a close up experience.

Your private visit to Pisa that will start directly from your accommodation will include the Piazza dei Miracoli where you will admire the city's Romanesque architecture of the Cathedral, Baptistery and the famous Leaning Tower. These buildings laid out on the sprawling green lawns are the most beautiful and important examples of Tuscan Romanesque architecture in all of the history of art and listed as one of seven of the worlds. We can reserve for you the tickets to climb the Leaning Tower.

After you can stroll around the Pisa city center for shopping or just to reach the Arno river to see the renaissance palaces. Before lunch we will drive you in Lucca.

 

Lucca, enclosed in its 16th century walls, is a delightful town with surprises around every corner.

We will reserve for you a nice restaurant to discover local food and wines from the close hills north of the town famous for their products. After lunch you will be free to discover the city center.

From the local tasty traditional pastries, the open piazza where once stood a Roman Amphitheater to the long streets lined with medieval buildings and towers that now house fashion boutiques and jewelry shops. The city's charm remains a walk or a bike ride on the tree-lined immense 16th century walls.

We will drive you back at your accommodation at the end of the day.

Your expert Driver, fluent in English, will be at your disposal for the day and will introduce you the local history and will give you the proper advises for the day to be a relaxing experience.

If you are interested to deep in the local history and to be accompanied to have a detailed introduction we can reserve for you a Walking guided tour with our Certified Guide of Pisa and Lucca, fluent in English.
