THE TOWN OF THE HUGE FORTIFICATIONS

Arianna & Friends organizes a fascinating tour to Lucca, one of the best preserved towns of Italy, about 30 minutes from Livorno.



Here the outline:

- Private transfer by minivan or minibus from the port of Livorno. Our English speaking operator meets you directly at the ship in the morning at your convenience and tours you for the whole day. The tour leader gives you an interesting introduction to the region Tuscany, its uses, facts and history, while reaching the place. French, German, Russian, Spanish and Italian are also possible.

- Our chauffeur drives us on private car or van for about half hour to Lucca, where we meet a local official city guide. She brings us to collect the bikes and gives us a first introduction to the history of the town.

- We go on with a two-hour biking excursion along the huge city fortifications with stops on the bastions for pictures and further explanations. The city guide diverts also into the downtown to visit to the monumental places of Lucca still on bike, like the charming elliptical Piazza Anfiteatro, the marble covered Chiesa di San Michele and the cathedral complex.

- After the biking tour, we enjoy a typical lunch in a famous Luccan restaurant with local specialities and excellent wines. You can taste some rare specialities of the town like the delicious zuppa di farro, a spelt soup with legumes. In the afternoon you have some free time for shopping or for a gelato in town. Lucca has always been a merchant town and its historical shops are a major part of its fascination!

- As an alternative to the shopping in town, the afternoon can be dedicated to visiting a legendary bridge over the Serchio river called Ponte del Diavolo, just 20 minutes outside of Lucca. Another alternative is a quick stop at the leaning tower of Pisa, which is right on the way back to the ship.


- Return within the early evening, depending on the docking time of the cruiseship.
