If you'll be on your own the driver will provide you maps and point you the hightlight worthy to visit :Piazzale Napoleone, Duomo di S.Martino, Chiesa di San Michele, Torre Giunigi ,Piazza Anfiteatro.
At the arranged time you' ll meet again your driver at the same place he left you to proceed toward Pisa.

You can enjoy Pisa for 1-2 h enought time to visit not only the Miracle Square but also the city centre with its nice roads under loggias that take till the Lungarni .
Once in Pisa you'll drive along the walls surrounding the city centre and the Miracle Square. Throught one of the Gate you'll reach the Miracle Square right at the feet of te Leaning tower. Before dropp you off your driver will contunue to give some infos and will point you the different monmuments that are in the Square . Baptistery, Cathedral, Leaning Tower, Cemetery, Museum of the Cathedral. If will be possible the driver will take you to the ticket office in order to give you the possibility to visit the monuments inside. If you want to climb the leaning tower we suggest to book online http://www.opapisa.it/

By Minibus or Bus ( more than 8 passengers): For Sure you'll have the Tour Assistant with you and she already explaned about the city of Lucca and Pisa wile you were driving on board of the bus.The driver will pass by the Check Point area and than will drive you to the specific spot for the drop off and pick up of the groups. With the tour assistant you can have the orientation tour of the city. Please remind: if you like to have a deep guided tour of the city you must hire the Authorised guide of Lucca.

To reach Pisa you'll drive along a road that goes throught Monte Pisano (15 km , 30 min).

In Pisa we can just get to the Bus Parking area where we must pay the check point and you must reach the leaning tower by 2 ways :
1) a shuttle bus from the bus parking area to the Miracle Square .it cost a fee ticket
2) 10 minutes walking
