Florence & Tuscany - Northwestern Tuscany (PDF Chapter)
This is the Northwestern Tuscany chapter from Lonely Planet’s Florence & Tusca-ny guidebook.
There’s far more to this green corner of Tuscany than Italy’s iconic Leaning Tower. Usually hurtled through en route to Florence and Siena’s grand-slam queue-for-hours sights, this is the place to take your foot off the accelerator and go slowly.
- pedal and picnic on delicious local treats atop handsome Lucca’s Renaissance city walls
- meander through medieval Pisa and scale its iconic Leaning Tower at sunset
- hunt white truffles with a dog in autumnal woods near outrageously foodie San Minia-to
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, San Miniato, Apuane Alps & Garfagnana, Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Barga, Bagni di Lucca, Carrara, Versilian Coast, Pie-trasanta, Viareggio, Lunigiana, Pontremoli.
