Pisa and Lucca are both within easy driving distance of Livorno and offer an attractive opportunity to visit two of Tuscany’s most important towns on a one-day shore excursion without spending too much time on the road.

Your first stop on your private shore excursion will be Pisa. Approaching the city centre along its fascinating river bank lined with medieval buildings, you will soon realise that Pisa is not just about its world-famous Leaning Tower. As you wind through the narrow cobbled streets you will catch glimpses of ancient churches and medieval tower houses before finally coming to stop in the Piazza dei Miracoli, the site of the 12th-century leaning bell tower for which Pisa is so renowned. This stunning World Heritage site, with its Cathedral and circular Baptistry, will no doubt inspire your photography skills, while the more energetic of you may want to take the challenge of climbing the 296 steps to the top of the Tower of Pisa for an original view of the surrounding Piazza (advance reservation necessary).

From Pisa it is just a 30 minute drive to Lucca, the medieval treasure of Tuscany entirely enclosed within its sturdy city walls. Elegant and immaculately-kept, Lucca offers something for all tastes, with its endless number of striking churches, the charming square once the site of a Roman Amphitheatre, the wider Piazza Napoleone opened up by Napoleon’s sister, Elisa, and an excellent range of shops and restaurants.

Opera fans may also enjoy a visit to the museum dedicated to Giacomo Puccini who was born here. For added fun, hire a bicycle for an hour or two to explore the hidden corners of Lucca, or take a stroll along the top of the wide city walls. After lunch at a local trattoria, you can opt to head for one of the splendid old villas in the surroundings of Lucca, such as the sumptuous 16th-century Villa Torrigiani or the Royal Villa Marlia which once belonged to Napoleon’s sister Elisa. Or perhaps you would prefer a wine-tasting session at a local winery: nearby Montecarlo is renowned for its wines and offers ample tasting opportunities. Just let your driver know your preferences!

The drive back to Livorno takes about 45-60 minutes.
