Art, food and crafts tour


The perfect way to spend a day in Tuscany: join in a private walking tour of Pisa and Lucca with Martina. In the morning she will guide you around the symbols of the wealthy Maritime Republic of Pisa: the world famous Leaning Tower, the Duomo, the Baptistery and Camposanto (graveyard), which stand out in the 'Field of Miracles'.
After a delicious lunch in a family run Trattoria, you will head (by train - your car/ private transportation) to the charming walled city of Lucca.
Martina will guide you through narrow lanes and alleys while discovering its treasures - the Duomo dedicated to St. Martin with the intriguing Volto Santo and the marble sarcophagus of Ilaria del Carretto; St. Michael Church, the 'Market Square' (Roman Amphitheatre Square), Giacomo Pucccini's birthplace, the awesome garden of Palazzo Pfanner, San Frediano Church and the amazing Renaissance Walls. Last but not least, she will introduce you to its typical products (extra virign olive oil, spelt, Buccellato cake etc. ) arts and crafts!

Itinerary

Martina will meet you in Pisa, by the main arch way to the Square of Miracles.
Delightful walking tour around the Duomo (Cathedral); Baptistery with its fabulous acustics, Camposanto (graveyard) and the Leaning Tower (Martina will be happy to book the tickets in advance, according to your will).
Delicious lunch in a no turistic Tuscan Trattoria where they serve home made pasta.
Transfer to Lucca: after a brief introduction, you will get on the Renaissance walls; then walk down to the Duomo and discover its treasures. Then, you will proceed through its charming lanes and alleys stopping at highlights and off the beaten-path sights, including the opera composer Giacomo Puccini's birthplace, the Roman Amphitheate Square and Guinigi Tower with oak trees on the top. While touring Martina will provide you details about the history, traditions, legends and typical products of Lucca!

A Recent Review of this tour

Martina is a fantastic tour guide, probably one of the best we have encountered. She is knowledgeable and patient, and tells the story of every attraction like no one else. We did a private Lucca and Pisa tour with her, and came away feeling like we were transported into the times and ages of the sights we saw. Martina is also great at reading her group, expertly navigating their interests and attention span for topics. If you can believe it, she held our attention throughout a 7 hour tour. Perfecto!
