I was about to schedule a day trip from Florence to Pisa/Lucca on a Monday (Sept 17), since some major museums are closed on Monday in Florence.
However, I just read the most of Lucca is closed on Monday.
I wanted to do Pisa in the morning by taking a train from Firenze S. M. Novella to Pisa Centrale at 8ish... visit Pisa and climb the Tower, then take another train from Pisa S. Rossore to Lucca at 12ish. Spend the remaining of the day there and come back to Florence from Lucca at 20ish.
#1- Is Lucca all closed on Mondays? Bike rental, restaurants, ...?
#2- Should I stay in Florence instead this Monday and schedule my day trip another day?
#3- Do I have the right train stations listed above? What's the name of the Lucca one?
#4- Is my planning making any sense?
Thanks a lot!
