Lucca or San Gimignano

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodors Universe,

We are in a bit of a conundrum; to visit either Lucca or SG from Pisa. I have little knowledge of both, but my more well-informed partner has suggested spending a day at SG and Livorno, while I am somewhat more inclined towards Lucca. The trouble is that I think we can only spend one day between these two (or maybe three, considering Livorno) areas, since we have agreed that 2 days should be spent on Pisa itself and Florence. I thus come seeking expert advice on this matter. If it makes a difference, we'll be visiting these areas in about a week.

I would also like to enquire whether you think our plan to travel around Tuscany by train is the best option (we both have railpasses), or whether taking buses may be more advantageous. Neither of us has taken up driving, unfortunately, so that rules that out.

With Thanks in Advance,
