Pisa & Lucca
In Pisa & Lucca We'll drive you!
Pisa is a jewel in itself. The "Campo dei Miracoli" (Miracle Square) is a absolute must with its group of world famous monuments: the leaning Tower, Cathedral and Baptistry.
The guided tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli will make you discover why Pisa can boast such splendor.
However, the beauty of the Piazza dei Miracoli is not only admirable outside. For this reason we invite you to extend the guided tour also inside the monuments of the square, which conserves works such as the pulpit of Giovanni Pisano, the San Giovanni Evangelista of Cimabue, the sarcophagus of Arrigo VII of Tino di Camaino, the mosaics of the Traini, the Sant'Agnese by Andrea del Sarto, the quadroni of the Cathedral and the works that decorate the very rich tribune of the Duomo.
Also the visit to the Camposanto Monumentale is truly indispensable also because inside it is conserved one of the most important collections of Roman sarcophagi which were reused in the Middle Ages by the members of the powerful Pisan families.
An acient Roman town and birthplace of the composer Giacomo Puccini, Lucca is one of the few towns in italy that still has its defensive fortifications intact.
Inside the walls lies a living museum of 14th-19th century terracotta roofed stoned houses, villas, secret gardens and courtyards, woven together by narrow traffic-free cobbled streets and impressive piazzas.
The most interesting of these squares is Piazza San Michele with its white limestone mediaeval church.
