Cook in Lucca and Push the Tower in Pisa
Departing this morning to head over to Lucca for a morning class with Chef Paolo, who is famous for his culinary wonders and you will not only laugh, but taste the local Tuscan wines while enjoying his humorous ways around the kitchen. You will then take a moment to enjoy the extraordinary dishes prepared by you before heading to the city center to stroll around Lucca, which was founded by the Etruscans (there are traces of an earlier Ligurian settlement) and became a Roman colony in 180 BC. The rectangular grid of its historical center preserves the Roman street plan, and the Piazza San Michele occupies the site of the ancient forum. Traces of the amphitheater still may be seen in the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro.
Your next adventure in Tuscany will be heading over to Piazza of Miracles in the city center of Pisa. Although Pisa is known worldwide for its leaning tower (the bell tower of the city’s cathedral), the city of over 90,834 residents (around 200,000 with the metropolitan area) contains more than 20 other historic churches, several medieval palaces and various bridges across the River Arno.
