Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll hop aboard your coach and journey west to Pisa with your local guide.

Arrive at the central square of Piazza dei Miracoli, and hop out to explore by foot. Your guide will lead you on a walking tour past the Baptistery, where you can admire its mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Afterward, head to the city’s iconic attraction: the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. Originally intended as a bell tower to accompany the Duomo, hear how the monument began its famous tilt in the 12th century.

Head inside the stunning Duomo cathedral to study the carved pulpit, a masterwork of medieval sculpture, as well as other features of the ornate interior. Then soak up some free time to explore on your own.

After reuniting with your guide, continue to the city of Lucca, one of the lesser-known jewels of Tuscany and home to an impressive collection of Etruscan ruins and Renaissance architecture.

Take off on a walking tour of the city, following your guide to see the Piazza dell ‘Anfiteatro, Lucca Cathedral and Guinigi Tower as you hear tales of their history. Treat your taste buds with a sample of buccellato, Lucca’s ring-shaped cake, before exploring independently for a bit.

Your day trip will conclude with drop-off back in central Florence.

We didn’t find the meeting point very clear - asked a local for directions as google maps struggled. Seeing the Pisa complex was great. Be aware entry into the tower is not included. We did the lunch option - would not recommend this - food average (basic lasagne, salad and tub of ice cream). Would have rather spent the time walking on the walls around Pisa. Lucca was lovely. Guide very knowledgeable about the history and buildings. Free time there was great. Recommend paying to walk up one of the towers for great overview of the city. Buying gelati ourselves was much tastier than the cake sample provided.

Must-see Pisa, nice Lucca & lovely guides

The Pisa leg of the trip was great, definitely a must-see if you're in Italy. I only wished we spent more time there since it included the lunch (which was simple but decent). Lucca was nice but felt we spent more time than necessary and could have used 30-60 more minutes in Pisa. Our main guide, Giulio, was interesting and lovely. He gave bits of information about towns on our way to our visits. I appreciated his enthusiasm, humour & punctuality. Felt bad that he had to deal with some passengers who were not very considerate & seemed to push everyone's buttons. Giulio definitely made a good trip better.

Directions to the meeting place would have been useful for people arriving on foot. In Pisa it was useful to have timed entry to the cathedral. Lunch was standard tourist fare. The toilets in the restaurant needed cleaning more often. There wasn't enough free time after lunch for people who wanted to see inside the baptistry or go up the tower. The visit to Lucca was excellent. Our guide, Consuela, took us to places not usually seen on a standard walking tour and was clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

Dear client Thanks for the feedback and for joining a Ciaoflorence tour! When a client books he/ she receives a voucher with the precise address of the meeting point that you can put in Google and very easily be directed. The bus terminal is located just six minutes walking distance from the main train station, very central. In regards to the time spent in each place: we do our best to let people spend the maximum time possible according to the distances to cover. At the end of the day they got a great taste of the area and know already where they want to come back for staying longer. We will wait to see you on board again, take care! Kind Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

Lucca is lovely, Pisa is the typical tourist spot where everybody wants to have the leaning pose with the tower. I find that the tour is too short, everything was in a rush, you can’t really appreciate the visit. It’s enriching though since they give you a little bit of history. Overall it’s not bad.

Great tour to cover both cities

There are two bus stations in Florence, ensure that you go the correct departure point. We booked this tour as we wanted to cover both cities in one day. The tour allowed sufficient time in both locations and the tour guide was great. There was a little walking from the bus to the tower in Pisa so not ideal for those that don't want to walk, however it appears most of the tours have to stop outside the city and the visitors have to make their way to the tower.
