Two days in Lucca, versus one day in Lucca and Siena each

Jump to last reply

Hi, I need help from anyone who's been to both of the above locations. My predicament is this:

I will be headed to La Spezia/Cinque Terre from Florence (not flexible). In between I will have about 2 extra nights (i.e. 2 full days) and I would have spent enough time in Florence, I reckon, to be satisfied with the city itself.

My initial plan was to spend the 2 nights in between Florence and La Spezia in Lucca, to have the 2 full days just chilling out and biking about. However, it's occurred to me that Lucca's pretty small--I don't really fancy lazing around with nothing to do after I've biked the 4km wall within an hour, and visit a few must-see places..

Therefore, I'm considering cutting one night out of Lucca and spending the extra night in Florence, so that I could do a 6-hour day trip to Siena (excluding bus time) on one of my Florence days instead. Siena was not even in my original plan because it's not on the northern train route, but then I heard about the Duomo and all the beautiful things there and I'm wondering if this is not a good opportunity to quickly nip down there and experience the city, even if just for a short while.

Would appreciate any input on both itineraries--a day trip to Siena versus the extra day in Lucca? What are Lucca's strengths over Siena, and would anyone choose the former over the latter if they could only go to one place?

Grazie mille in advance!
