On this Stefano Rome Tours Shore Excursion into Tuscany from the port of Livorno or La Spezia, you will have the opportunity to visit two of Tuscany’s most famous cities that are rich in history, culture, charm and architecture: Pisa and Lucca.

PISA


On your Pisa and Lucca Shore Excursion you have the opportunity to visit Italy's most well recognized city of Pisa.

There is more to Pisa than just the iconic “Leaning Tower of Pisa” known as one of Italy’s most famous sites and top tourist attractions, Pisa itself is a city with history rooted into ancient times and shrouded in legends.

Romans themselves referred to Pisa as being ancient, and legends speak of the mythical king of Pylos following the fall of Troy.

In more modern times, Pisa was a dominating commercial center that rivaled the formidable cities of Venice and Genoa.  The commercial boom helped create the Pisan-Romanesque architecture that continue to inspire the locals and visitors alike.

The famous place to visit in Pisa is Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of the Miracles) where you will see the architectural beauty of the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Cathedral, and the Baptistery.

These imposing religious monuments are recognized not only as among the leading centers for medieval art, but also listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1987.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most popular photo opportunity sites as thousands of people pose for photos propping up the leaning tower of Pisa. Have fun, and don’t forget to bring your own camera and be creative on your photo shoot!

 

LUCCA

From Pisa your excursion will continue with a leisurely drive through the splendid countryside of Tuscany to Lucca, a charming medieval town with Romanesque style palaces (palazzi in Italian) and churches, ancient Roman monuments, and unforgettable piazzas.

As with many Italian towns, Lucca boasts a rich history dating as far back to the pre-Roman civilization known as the Etruscans who settled here thousands of years ago.

The influence of Ancient Rome on Lucca is evident the moment you set foot in the famous Piazza dell’ Anfieatro, the elliptical square that took on the outline of the 2nd century AD Roman amphitheater that once stood here. Remnants of the ancient structure are still visible in the stones that peek out from medieval buildings that were incorporated into the ancient ruins.

This lively piazza popular among locals of Lucca is surrounded by open air cafes, shops and boutiques.

The flat narrow lanes conceptualized during the medieval times are lined with shops of all varieties making for a splendid stroll to shop, admire medieval buildings and beautiful Renaissance architecture, and take in the local atmosphere that makes Lucca so enchanting.

 

Livorno Shore Excursions to Tuscany Pisa and Lucca Tour

 

Lunch is delicious at any restaurant in Lucca, as Tuscans take huge pride in their culinary mastery.

You will be delighted to see that the major form of getting around within the town of Lucca are bicycles, thanks to the flat terrain upon which Lucca was founded.

From Lucca you will enjoy a relaxing drive back to your ship in Livorno.

Thank you for choosing Stefano Rome Tours for your Italy Private Excursions. We look forward to showing you Tuscany!
 

** TOURING FROM LA SPEZIA?  La Spezia Port is farther away from Pisa and Florence than Livorno Cruise Port, therefore additional driving time is required to and from your destinations.  The additional driving time would reduce your overall sightseeing time available in Pisa and Florence in order to accommodate the ship's docking schedule in La Spezia. Please see below the Meeting Point to meet your driver at La Spezia Port.
