Florence: 2 Nights

Arrival in Italy

Florence

Start your relaxing holiday in Tuscany with a private transfer from Pisa International Airport to your hotel in Florence. After settling in, you’ll discover the amazing works of art in the Uffizi Gallery on a guided tour with skip-the-line entry. The gallery occupies a large 16th-century building and is famous worldwide for its outstanding collection of ancient sculptures and paintings that date from the Middle Ages to the modern period.

Explore Florence on Foot

Florence

Today, you’ll visit the main sights of Florence with an expert guide. You’ll begin by visiting one of the most visited spots in the city, Piazza del Duomo. You’ll then head to Giotto’s Bell Tower, the most eloquent example of 14th-century Gothic architecture in Florence, before heading to the cathedral. You’ll finish at the Gallerie dell’Accademia, which is home to Michelangelo’s world-famous statue of David.

Pisa: 2 Nights

Travel to Pisa

Pisa

Your private driver will pick you up from your hotel in Florence for your private transfer to Pisa. Once you arrive and check in to your hotel, you’ll be able to enjoy the afternoon at your leisure. You may want to visit some of the stunning monuments that sit within this city or take a trip to the nearby Canyon Park, which is a wild forest where you can enjoy walking or adventure sports.

Explore Pisa & the Leaning Tower

Pisa

Discover Pisa’s most iconic sights, including Piazza dei Miracoli, the Baptistery and the famous Leaning Tower, with an expert guide. Beginning with Piazza dei Miracoli, you’ll learn why this beautiful square was so aptly named the ‘Meadow of Miracles’ while exploring the buildings surrounding the square. After this comes the highlight of your day as this tour gives you the opportunity to not only admire the glorious Leaning Tower from the outside but also to go inside and climb the steps to the bell tower. The views from here across the city are stunning!

Lucca: 2 Nights

Travel to Lucca

Lucca

Today, you’ll enjoy a luxury private transfer from your hotel in Pisa to your hotel in Lucca. After checking in, you’ll spend the afternoon at your leisure. The city’s surrounding 16th- and 17th-century walls are perfect for exploring the town and admiring the beautiful views over the roofs, alleys, towers, churches and marvellous town squares. Worthy of a visit are the Guinigi Tower and its roof-top tree garden, Piazza Anfiteatro (perfect for an espresso), Via Fillungo for shopping, and the pretty cathedral.

Explore Siena, San Gimignano & Chianti

Siena, San Giminignano, Chianti

Today, you’ll venture out on a full-day tour of these wonderful locations, which will be a feast for your eyes courtesy of the breath-taking views of the Tuscan countryside that you will enjoy. You’ll begin the day in Siena, learning about this wonderfully vibrant medieval city and its famous Il Palio horserace, before moving on to San Gimignano. This under-rated medieval hill town is encircled by 13th-century walls and boasts a range of historic towers. You’ll end the day in the Chianti wine region to enjoy a visit to a vineyard with wine tasting.

Viareggio: 4 Nights

Travel to Viareggio

Viareggio

Your private driver will ensure your comfortable transfer from your hotel in Lucca to your hotel in Viareggio. Upon checking in, you’ll have the rest of the day to relax and enjoy the area at your leisure. You may want to enjoy a relaxing walk along Viale Regina Margherita, the main promenade in Viareggio along the sea, which is lined with fine examples of the Liberty and Art Deco buildings that can be found dotted throughout the town.

Leisure Days in Viareggio

Viareggio

The next three days in Viareggio are for you to spend at your leisure. During these days, we recommend soaking up the sun on one of the town’s many beaches or perhaps enjoying a walk along the palm-tree-lined boulevards close to the beach, where there are plenty of luxury shops. If you want to immerse yourself in a little local culture, we recommend visiting the Museum of the Carnival of Viareggio, which is a parade of festively decorated carriages and is situated on the historic Via Regia in the heart of the old town. There is also the Civic Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Mankind, which are housed inside a 19th-century villa that was the last home of Napoleon’s sister.
