Lucca and Pisa
We will meet near the ship between 8:00am and after having introduced ourselves we will start our journey together towards Pisa and in around 20 min by car we will be standing in front one of the world’s most recognized symbols…The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
This famous "campanile" or bell tower, by Bonanno Pisano has been standing for over eight centuries. It was originally constructed in 1173 but due to its poorly laid foundation the tower slowly started to lean to one side and has remained that way ever since.
The tower draws tourists from all over the world for its rarity and uniqueness.
From Pisa, we will head towards Lucca, one of the most beautiful and authentic Tuscan towns. It is considered one of the most peaceful places in the Tuscan region surrounded by 16th century antique walls harbouring some of Italy’s most exquisite medieval and Renaissance architecture. The historical city centre’s main roads were transformed into tree-lined avenues in the 19th century. However, Lucca has remained a town of local merchants that know how to make the visitor feel welcome.
What you will see:
The Duomo, The Church of St. Michael, in both Romaico Pisano style and the Church of San Frediano. In the Duomo, you will find the famous works of Jacopo Della Quercia such as the tomb of Ilaria Del Carretto, which even though sculpted in marble, depicts delicately this woman who died giving birth to her second child, truly a sculptural masterpiece.
Market Square is another example of characteristic architecture of this little town which was constructed in the middle of an ancient Roman amphitheatre.
We will stop for lunch within the heart of this charming medieval town. You will be able to taste local dishes and wines. Lucca is famous for Lunch alla Lucchese…
Once we have finished and have some free time we will take a photo break and then arrivederci Lucca…!
