Accessible Private Driving Tour of Pisa & Lucca
On this accessible Florence tour, you’ll visit the famous Field of Miracles with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, as well as the medieval walled city of Lucca (shown in the photo on the left).
These two cities are also two of the flattest and most accessible cities in the region.
The Accessible Private Driving Tour of Pisa & Lucca starts with a professionally licensed tour guide meeting you with a wheelchair accessible van at your hotel.
After a quick drive to Pisa, you’ll have an accessible tour of the Field of Miracles. You can view the Leaning Tower of Pisa from the outside; there is no elevator inside it. The nearby Baptistery and Cathedral have wheelchair ramp entrances available.
Although the town of Pisa is famous for its leaning tower, the town itself has over two thousand years of history. Pisa was a seafarer republic which conquered many territories and states all over the Mediterranean sea. On this accessible tour of Lucca and Pisa, you’ll see numerous sights outside of the Field of Miracles such as the Lungarni, San Michele church, the Piagge Park, the Certosa, and San Rossore Park.
After visiting Pisa, your air-conditioned wheelchair accessible van will bring you to the medieval town of Lucca where the town walls still remain. The 4.2 km medieval wall has a smooth path on the top of it that pedestrians (including wheelchair users) can use. A town canal (shown in the photo on the left) runs through the east side of the city. There are numerous accessible restaurants to choose from for lunch.
