Pisa is famous for its 14th century Romanesque Leaning Tower and cathedral Santa Maria Assunta located on the Campo dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles). Visit the National Museum of San Matteo where you will see an excellent collection of art from the 12th to 15th centuries. The Gothic architecture, the medieval town centre and majestic buildings in Sienna are breathtaking. Spend your afternoon walking through the narrow lanes, visiting museums, churches and the black-and-white Duomo with excellent artwork. Don’t miss the ‘Palio’ (horse race) in the Piazza del Campo.
Hidden behind imposing Renaissance walls, is the gorgeous old city of Lucca, the birthplace of the composer Giacomo Puccini. The most enjoyable way to explore Lucca is on foot or bicycle. Follow the path around the top of the walls, or wind your way through the lanes past the ancient house facades. Chianti has a unique landscape, featuring green rolling hills covered with wide fields of vineyards and olive groves, small stone villages and countryside homes, where you can enjoy fine cuisine and luscious wines.
