Florence (Livorno) Lucca Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

The medieval walled city of Lucca dates back to the time of Caesar. Major sights to see include the Romanesque-styled Duomo, the Museo Nazionale di Palazzo Mansi and the San Michele in Foro.
Guide knew her city well but was untrained how to deal with a slower moving older age group.

Toured medieval Lucca inside the walls and had a scenic drive through Tuscany on the way. This was surprisingly my favourite stop and tour of the cruise! An absolutely breathtaking little jewel of a city, we made the most of our free time shopping, eating gelato and having a cappuccino in an outdoor cafe. The tour was so informative, guide was friendly and easy to understand...we loved the whole experience. It was a difficult choice to skip Pisa and Florence but so glad we chose this instead. A must see part of Tuscany rich in history and beauty. Read Less

Lucca is a beautiful little town, birthplace of Boccherini and Puccini. We enjoyed both the exercise and the sites of this walking tour. It was nice, as well, to visit something a little less popular and crowded than Florence or Pisa.

Got lost. Bus didn't wait. People aboard said guide didn't even look down the street to see if I were coming. I came 5 minutes too late. I had to take a cab which cost 145 Euros. Not a great experience.
