Carrara + Pisa or Lucca (shore excursion)

11 February 2016

Meeting you at your ship with the private chauffeured car and tour leader, and departure for Carrara (maximum 60 minutes from Livorno). I give you a running commentary on what you can see as we drive along the road. You’ll first have the chance to visit a sculpture atelier and then we’ll drive up the mountain roads to Fantiscritti, where you can visit a small open-air museum created by an old marble quarryman who endlessly collected pieces to put in his museum to show the old ways of extracting, transporting and working marble from the time of the Romans to the present day. You’ll also have the chance to see the centre of Carrara with its beautiful Romanesque cathedral and the house where Michelangelo stayed. Then we will go back down the mountains and go to your choice of Lucca or Pisa:
Pisa: In Pisa I give you a tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracles Square) with the famous Leaning Tower. If you want, we can go into the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Camposanto (Holy Cemetery). I’ll also show you another nice place, near Piazza dei Miracoli – Piazza Cavalieri where Italy’s most prestigious university is situated. Then we’ll go back to Livorno following the River Arno.
Lucca: we’ll visit everything: the Walls, Piazza San Michele, Giacomo Puccini’s birthplace, the Roman amphitheatre, the Church of San Frediano, the Guinigi Tower and the Volto Santo (Holy Face). By then you may want some free time. We then return to Livorno with, time permitting, a stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
