L&B Italian Tours - Search results for: Lucca

Duration: 9:00am – 5:00pm (8 hours)

This excursion to Pisa and Lucca will depart from your Florence hotel.  A private driver will pick you up at your hotel. Your driver will talk to you about our way of life, traditions, history about the places you’ll visit and will tell you what is worth to be visited in every place (I’m confused by this “what is worth to be visited in every place”). Pisa is famous for the leaning tower and is a 1- hour drive from Florence. We usually stop here for an hour or more to give you the opportunity to climb up the tower (reservation is recommended). After Pisa we’ll drive to Lucca, a 30-minute drive from Pisa. The driver will drop you off within the city walls, where upon departure he’ll swing back around to pick you up. Lucca is a nice place to visit walking.  The other places of interest are not far one another. Your driver will tell you where the best places to visit are in the city and, at the end, will drive you back to your accommodations in Florence. This is a private tour. What does it mean? It means that you’ll be able to do different things like spend more time in one of the two locations or visit somewhere else close by. This is something that you’ll be able to consider together with your driver. He will also suggest the best restaurants to have lunch. Your driver will be as flexible as possible to make this the best tour for you.

Jeff and Ali

Our excursion to Italy….In one word was “PERFECT”!

We had an amazing time visiting several places in Italy and Hali’s suggested itinerary and careful planning made for a great holiday without any drama!

Her knowledge and experience of connecting us with amazing tour guides, wonderful accommodations and orchestrating the travel between each city, was very well organized.

Hali listened to our long and complicated bucket list which included everything from art & history in Florence, biking in Lucca, getting to the top of the Tower of Pisa and hiking Cinco Terre, all while staying in beautiful accommodations and eating AMAZING food, and she was able to pull it all together without a hitch!

Thank you Hali for making our visit to Italy a very memorable experience!!!Grazie Mille !!!
