Visit the towns of Lucca & Pisa. Along the way, stop for a leisurely lunch and wine tasting on an organic vineyard in the countryside. Culture, history, and wine…what more do you need?
Known today as the “city of 100 churches”, Lucca has some of the most beautiful Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance architecture in Tuscany and yet never gets overwhelmed with tourists.
Walk along the city’s original walls, step into the ornate churches, sip a coffee in the piazza, and learn about the history of this mercantile city, all with the insight of a local guide. Highlights include the Basilica of San Frediano, the Church of San Michele, the Cathedral of San Martino, Napoleon Square, the home of opera composer Giacomo Puccini, the hand-wound Clock Tower, and so much more.
After a 2-hour walking tour, you’ll have worked up quite an appetite, which is why we’ll head into the countryside to relax in the sun and enjoy a leisurely lunch in an organic vineyard featuring traditional regional dishes and seasonal products from the neighboring farms. You’ll also have the opportunity to taste a variety of the vineyard’s own wines.
Our adventure then continues in Pisa, a rich and influential city in Tuscan history. Your guide will take you along the city’s original medieval walls, through the old entrance gate, and inside the Piazza dei Miracoli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Step inside the cathedral for a glimpse at the Renaissance mosaics, gold-decorated ceilings, and the impressive Pisa griffin. Then it will be time to climb the 294 steps of the famous Leaning Tower to get the best 360-degree panorama of the whole city!

Fantastic service by Nicolo. Easy to communicate with, always on time and very knowledgeable. Had a great few days around Buonconvento and Montalcino. Definitely look these guys up when you're in the area
I can highly recommend Nicolo and team. Great service, always on time, and very knowledgable of the area.
The wine tour with Niccolo was one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. Very well planned by Niccolo, who picked us up and took us to Fattoria dei Barbi, one of the oldest vineyards in the region, 5 out of 5. Thanks Niccolo, we'll be back!
