Half Day Tour from Florence to Pistoia - Tuscany, Italy

About This Tour

Duration: 5 hours
Location: Tuscany, Italy
Product Code: 56197P56

Activity Details

Pistoia: A precious small town in the heart of Tuscany!
*PLEASE TAKE NOTE that all our tours are on a private basis for your party, not in sharing tour with other people*

The city of Pistoia will be a true discovery: it is located at the foot of the Tuscan Apennines Mountains and it is about 30 kilometres north-west of Florence. 

A few kilometres from other more famous destinations in Tuscany, such as Florence, Lucca and Pisa, lies one city a little off the usual beaten paths. Walking through the streets of Pistoia, which dates back to Roman times, you'll find many traces of the past. Pistoia was the centre of Gallic, Ligurian and Etruscan settlements before becoming a Roman colony, founded in the 2nd century to support the Roman troops in their battle against the Ligurians.

What to do in Pistoia:
• Piazza Duomo is the centre of the artistic and historic city of Pistoia and medieval buildings that form a wonderful architectural framework circle it. The bell tower, which was converted in the thirteenth century from a tower of the Lombard era, dominates the square and three floors were added. Climb the 200 steps, and enjoy the amazing panoramic view of the city!
• Visit the Basilica of San Zeno, the Baptistery, the Bishop's Palace and the Cathedral Museum.
• Take a walk into its narrow streets and small places
• Do some shopping
• Taste Necci, the tipycal sweet dessert made with chestnut flour
