Drive towards the village of Torre del Lago overlooking the beautiful Lake of Massaciuccoli, where your magical boat trip begins. The lake itself forms part of a WWF protected area and it’s surrounded by eucalyptus trees, wild poplars, alders and tamaricks. Sit back and enjoy the boat trip as you have a sip of local wine and listen to the sounds of famous Puccini operas. Later on, visit the villa of composer Giacomo Puccini and then carry on to Pisa to see one of the most recognisable sights in the world - the Leaning Tower, where Galileo conducted his gravity experiments. Here you’ll have some free time before you head back to the port.
No photos or filming is allowed inside Villa Puccini. In Pisa, coaches will have to park around a 15-minute walk from Miracle Square. Knees and shoulders must be covered when visiting any religious sites in Italy.
