Lucca to Pisa Shore Trip On Your Own

Do you love the thrill of discovering new destinations all on your own? Set off for an adventure in the Tuscan countryside and travel to Lucca and Pisa in one day while being transferred to all destinations with a secure return to the port and your ship at the conclusion of your tour.

Depart from Livorno and travel for approximately 1 hour to arrive in Lucca. Your comfortable and panoramic journey on your air-conditioned coach includes free maps, free Wi-Fi on the bus and assistance on board and at the stops in Italian, English and Spanish. You will be given approximately 2.5 hours for self-exploration and discovery in this Renaissance-walled city. Your arrival point will be the next to the walls of city near Porta Sant 'Anna. Lucca is a city on the Serchio river in Italy's Tuscany region. It's known for the well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city center and its cobblestone streets. Broad, tree-lined pathways along the tops of these massive 16th- and 17th-century ramparts are popular for strolling and cycling. Casa di Puccini, where the great opera composer was born, is now a house museum.

You will then travel from Lucca to Pisa, riding in comfort on this panoramic, scenic quick trip lasting approximately 15 minutes. You will have approximately 1.5 hours once you have arrived where you can photograph and immerse yourself in this most iconic city. Your arrival point in Pisa will be the parking area Pietrasantina, a few minutes walking distance from Piazza dei Miracoli (torre di Pisa). Pisa is best known for its iconic Leaning Tower; this structure was already tilting when it was completed in 1372. The 56m white-marble cylinder is the bell tower of the Romanesque, striped-marble cathedral that rises next to it in the Piazza dei Miracoli. Find also in the piazza the Baptistry, whose renowned acoustics are demonstrated by amateur singers daily, and the Caposanto Monumentale cemetery.

You will return to Livorno after your time in Pisa, arriving approximately 45 minutes later, and be dropped off near the port area and your waiting ship.

We had a great time on this trip. Lucca is a quiet and beautiful small city which is just like most of the European small towns, wouldn’t let you bored. Trip arranged enough time to visit both cities. Do recommend it.

Signed up for Lucca and Pisa On Your Own as a shore excursion out of Livorno. Wasn't sure what to expect. The excursion was excellent! We were pointed to the correct meeting place on arrival at the port, and boarded a coach bus. Our guide took good care of us, walking us to a meeting point in both Pisa and Lucca, so we wouldn't get lost! Lots of time to explore both places and our guide and driver knew which ships we were on and returned us to the port on time. Great day out and good value!

It was easy to follow the directions for the meeting place. No tour guide was included at the destinations but they were available to give information on the bus ride and to make sure everything went as smooth as possible especially when playing with hiccups of the rain and traffic. Thank-you

I enjoyed the day with plenty of time to see all that I wanted to.I even had time to climb the 230 steps of the Guinigi Tower in Lucca, which I recommend that everyone does.

Great way to see these two historic sites. We rented bicycles in Lucca and rode atop the wall around the city. Lucca is small so there is time to walk to several of the highlight stops. Piza is a must see. We have all known about this magnificent building all our lives so it was particularly fun to see it in person.
