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!
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).
