Itinerary

Day 1

After your arrival in Lucca and after checking in your luggages, start your day with a guided tour of Lucca’s historic centre: discover the secrets of the city and its most known monuments.

In the afternoon, indulge in some shopping time thanks to “Sconti in Maschera”, which consists of special carnival discounts and offers in the best shops of the old town centre.

A typical restaurant of the city centre will delight you with its “Carnival-themed menu”, with the possibility of eating the traditional food of the area. After that, take part in the Carnival Grand Gala hosted inside the majestic Teatro del Giglio (Giglio Theatre). Here, the Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra will perform for you, for a night dedicated to elegance and music.

Day 2

In the morning, visit the outstanding Palazzo Mansi National Museum, a museum that boasts an exhibition of textiles and an example of historic houses built by Lucca’s wealthiest merchants. After that, climb up the Guinigi Tower (the tower with the roof garden!) and enjoy the view from its top.

In the afternoon, we suggest you visit the near city of Viareggio – about 25 minutes away from Lucca if you take the train or go by car – and take part in the great Corso Mascherato, a float parade of one of Italy’s most famous and surprising Carnivals, the Viareggio Carnival, that celebrates its 150th anniversary this year!

Special discounts for families!
