Tour Description

Our Lucca and Pisa Tour is a discovery of two gems in Tuscany.

There’s more to Tuscany than Chianti and Florence. This gorgeous Italian region has so much to offer.

Lucca and Pisa are among the most beautiful towns you can visit in Italy.

1. Lucca: gorgeous sights, history, and food

We have designed this tour so that you can explore Lucca and Pisa in total comfort. Your driver will pick you up at your hotel and drive you through the legendary countryside of Tuscany. 

After about one hour, you will reach Lucca, where you will meet your local guide and start your private city tour. 

Your Lucca and Pisa Tour will also be a food experience! While touring Lucca you’ll taste one of the most famous local products: the “focaccia Lucchese”.

You’ll also have the chance to try some artisanal Lucchese chocolate and a local pastry – all included in the price!

- Piazza Napoleone & Palazzo Ducale

After an introduction to the city’s history, you’ll head towards Piazza Napoleone.

The square was commissioned by Elisa Bonaparte, the sister of Napoleon.

This beautiful piazza is overlooked by the grand Palazzo Ducale, the seat of political power since the Middle Ages.

- The Cathedral of San Martino

Next, you’ll walk through Piazza del Giglio and reach the Cathedral of St. Martin, one of the highlights of our Lucca and Pisa Tour.

Inside the cathedral, you’ll admire the impressive decoration. Your guide will show you the most important artworks in this medieval treasure, and share the story of its construction and decoration.

Then, you’ll take a walk along via Fillungo, Lucca’s main street, which has some of the city’s oldest and most traditional stores.

- Piazza Anfiteatro

The next stop will be Piazza Anfiteatro, built on top of the ancient Roman amphitheater, whose shape was preserved in the construction of the piazza.

Locals and travelers sit outside cafes, enjoying the Tuscan sun right where, 2,000 years ago, the gladiators used to fight.

Piazza Anfiteatro is a truly unique mix of past and present.

- Walk on the Walls!

Lucca is also famous for its walls, built between 1504 and 1645, and perfectly preserved.

Your Lucca and Pisa Tour will continue with a walk on top of the walls, where you can enjoy a special view of the city from a unique vantage point.

Your Lucca walk will end in Piazza San Michele, which was built on top of the ancient Roman Forum of the city. Here, you’ll admire the impressive Church of St. Michael and the house of the legendary opera composer Giacomo Puccini.

At this point in the day, you’ll probably be ready for lunch.

Your guide will happily recommend a lovely restaurant, where you can try some of the delicious local food and wine (not included in the price).

Then, you will get back in the car and drive towards Pisa, which is just half an hour away.

2. Pisa: Leaning Tower, Duomo, Baptistery

Your Lucca and Pisa tour will continue in the world-famous Campo dei Miracoli.

Here, you’ll have some free time to explore the area on your own and admire the lovely Tower of Pisa, the Duomo, and the Baptistery.

Don’t miss the chance to discover this iconic Italian sight!

Campo dei Miracoli will be the last stop of your Lucca and Pisa Tour.

Your driver will then take you back to your hotel, but we’re sure that your memories of these beautiful places will stay with you forever.

The order of the sights visited may change.

IMPORTANT INFO!

You MUST bring an ID, a passport or a driver’s license to enter the sights.

    Italian ArtVentures' Feedbacks

    We were amazed by the service we received in Rome and even in Benevento. Giovanni went above and beyond to organize tours and transportation for our family of 15 traveling. Massimo was an incredible and knowledgeable tour guide in Rome. He made it fun for the kids and knew when to take a break. Provided water and an amazing lunch spot for us all. We still are talking about some of the stories he told us. Stefano met us at the train in Benevento and was only supposed to drive us through San Bartolomeo, my father's hometown. But he pulled up my father's and grandfather's genealogy and found some interesting facts that were amazing to find out. He printed and laminated it for us to take. It was an emotional day but such a wonderful part of the trip. The minibus was perfect for everyone to fit comfortably and head over to Almafi. Thank you Giovanni and your amazing staff for making this trip one of the most memorable trips ever!!!

    Giovanni was so exceptional at his job that you left the trip feeling torn between wanting to tell the World and also keeping him a best kept secret. Everything that he had orchestrated happened, seamlessly for us as if he had choreographed the entire country of Italy to show up, act, behave on queue. I put together a lot of trips, all over the world, for a group of around 20 friends each adventure. As the chief coordinator, you are always a little concerned about third party tours and tour guides: will everyone show up, is this a scam, can they speak English? Giovanni had infinite patience answering my questions and provided so much detail about our adventure, that everyone knew what to expect ahead of time. He took into consideration everyone’s interest, abilities and aptitudes. We saw a side of Italy that felt intimate and entertaining. There are not enough stars in the galaxy to award him.

    Great Experience!

    What a great experience for me and my family to have these private tours planned by Giovanni. We wanted a curated set of events during our time in Rome and Florence and Gio delivered such a wonderful set of activities to suit my husband and I and our two teenagers. Each of the four days was a memorable experience. Alex was so fantastic and I would recommend him highly- we had one our best meals with him just learning from him and having great conversation. Andres in Florence was a blast and incredibly connected to the history of the area, just a wealth of information so much so that we are definitely coming back to Florence to spend more time. Caterina walked us through the Roman ruins and the Colosseum which was awe inspiring. And, one of the best things we did which I highly recommend is a pasta making class with Romina. We learned to make two dishes with her and then ate the food we had prepared. Such a great way to spend our time connecting to Roma. Thank you Gio and to all our guides! We will cherish our memories made together.

    Giovanni-thank you for a wonderful itinerary of guided visits to all the sights in Rome! We so appreciated the communication and detailed planning that ensured our visits to the Vatican/St. Peter's, Colosseum, Hadrian's Villa and Florence came off without a hitch.
    Your guides are so friendly and knowledgeable. They made the history accessible and enriching.
    You covered every detail, down to lunch reservations, business class train tickets and wonderful air-conditioned transportation with friendly drivers!
    Thank you again for all the e-mails to develop a personalized itinerary for a special trip! We give you 5 1/2 stars on a 5 star scale!

    Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend Italian ArtVentures. We decided to use a private tour company, rather than the cruise ship excursions, and we were not disappointed. Giovanni was excellent at planning. We booked a tour in Rome and Pompeii. Giovanni was able to customize a tour that was special to us, so we could visit the LDS temple. Maria was our guide at the Vatican. She was fun, smart, and thoughtful. She translated for us as needed and was able to answer all of our questions. One major bonus of having a tour guide is skipping the line for St. Peter's Basilica. Our driver was awesome, traveling quickly and safely. The van was new, clean, and comfortable. We asked for a restaurant recommendation, and Giovanni made us reservations for Amalfi. It was incredible. The next day, we went to Pompeii with Stefano. He was fantastic. He made sure we saw the highlights and we avoided the crowds because of his expertise in the area. Booking was simple, communication was excellent, the cost was well worth what you get. This company is very professional. Totally awesome experience!

    Perfect Tour

    Truly outstanding experience visiting the Vatican with Maria! She was the perfect guide - knowledgable, smart, funny, passionate about the subject matter. She had a deep knowledge of the art, architecture, history, and the religious significance of the whole area, and gave us thoughtful, interesting commentary throughout our tour. Although she seemed to have a bottomless knowledge of everything, she also knew how to present the information in a way that was considered, insightful, and crucially, not too overwhelming for us. As we walked, she called attention to many things, some big, others details that could easily be missed. She was well prepared, but also brilliant at answering questions and flexible about following our interests. Several times she pointed out a small detail, then drew a connection back to it later in the tour. She knew the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, courtyard and Basilica like the back of her hand, steering us to less crowded routes and perfect viewing vantages. One of us is Catholic, and one of us loves art, and Maria brilliantly held both our interests throughout the tour. Highly Recommend!
