Pisa, for much of the middle ages dominated the Mediterranean Sea trading links with Spain and North Africa bringing wealth and formed the basis of a cultural revolution which still reflects today in the splendid buildings that we have left like the Duomo, Baptistery and the Campanile “Leaning Tower”.
Lucca’s regular grid of streets still follows the pattern of the former Roman colony founded in the 180 B.C. Great, solid ramparts, built in the 16th to the 17th century makes the city a pleasant place to explore on foot. Lucca is also the city that gave birth to Puccini.
