Private tour with skip-the-line visit of the Leaning Tower
Our day begins with a guided visit of the impressive UNESCO complex in Pisa. We go inside the Duomo, the (leaning!) Baptistery, the Monumental Cemetery and climb the Leaning Tower with skip-the-line access. Time permitting, we can also do a short walk through Pisa to admire the Knight's Square, the Arno river and Santa Maria della Spina church. Our lunch is in Lucca, genuine Tuscan town surrounded by impressive Renaissance walls (4km long - we will also walk on these walls!) I will take you to charming local restaurant that serves traditional dishes made with locally grown food. After lunch, we discover the Medieval churches of Lucca, its Ancient Roman roots, charming authentic shops, and learn why the people here love their surrounding hills.
