Driving from Lucca to Pisa and back

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Lucca early July and had planned to get a car at the end of our stay to drive through Tuscany for an additional 5 days. Now we are thinking about picking our car up a day early (since we are paying by the week anyway so it wouldn't cost more) and thought we could drive to Pisa instead of taking the bus or train. Does anyone recommend this, think it's a bad idea, or think it doesn't matter either way? Pricewise, there will be 4 of us so the one night of parking in Lucca will probably even out with the train/bus savings.

What are the logistics of driving to Pisa, parking near the tower, any dangers of inadvertently driving into a ZTL coming into Pisa, etc? Any tips for us?

And where can we park in Lucca overnight?

Thanks!
