Day 1: Montecatini Terme
You'll meet your travelling companions over a drink and dinner this evening in Montecatini Terme.
Day 2: Pisa
Pisa is home to one of Italy's most recognizable sights, the famous Leaning Tower. Residing in the Field of Miracles, this 180ft campanile took 176 years to build and began to lean shortly after construction. Thankfully the structure has recently been secured yet it still retains its famous lean. We include a visit to the Field of Miracles this morning.
Discover more of Pisa this afternoon in the company of your fellow travelers - your Tour Manager will always be on hand to suggest interesting places to visit.
Day 3: Siena
We'll visit Siena today, one of the most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe. Its enchanting narrow streets lined with palaces and mansions lead to the spectacular Piazza del Campo, which is the setting each year for the colorful and intense Palio horse race.
Day 4: Montecatini
Today is free for you to enjoy as you wish. Perhaps enjoy a stroll into town or maybe treat yourself to a Spa treatment. Alternatively, you could head out with your travelling companions and take the cable car up to the hilltop medieval village of Montecatini Alto. The views from here are unmissable.
Day 5: San Gimignano & Volterra
Enjoy another day at leisure in Montecatini Terme. Or, if you want to explore further, why not join our optional excursion to San Gimignano and Volterra.
San Gimignano is one of the prettiest hilltop towns in Tuscany, with beautiful palaces and churches, ornate frescoes and a fine baptistery within its ancient walls. It's also known as the 'town of beautiful towers' because of the impressive towers built here as status symbols by feuding families in medieval times.
We'll then move onto the walled medieval town of Volterra. We will visit the Estruscan Museum, which houses a large collection of historic artefacts, and see a craftsman at work hand carving Alabaster.
Day 6: Florence
Florence is known as Italy's 'Art City'. It is home to works by great masters including Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
Built beside the River Arno, explore the city's compact historic centre on your included excursion. Stroll across the Ponte Vecchio, climb the steps of the magnificent Duomo and admire glorious architecture among the Renaissance streets and piazzas. Il Porcellino, the statue of a boar located in Mercato Nuovo, is surrounded by superstition – if you throw a coin into the grating at its feet and rub its shiny nose, legend has it that you will return to the city.
Day 7: Lucca
Lucca is a traditional historic town surrounded by impressive walls. Explore the town on an optional excursion today. Take a walk along the ancient ramparts and admire the beautiful botanical gardens, the Basilica of San Frediano and fascinating architecture including a tree-topped tower.
Alternatively, take time to explore your resort, enjoy the bustling town and the local café culture.
