My girlfriend and I are landing at Pisa Airport around 11.00 on the 22nd August and will be spending the day in Pisa and Lucca before going onto Florence. Could anyone help me with the following questions:
- We won't be buying tickets for the tower in advance as we don't want to set a key time. However, will we have a fair chance of getting tickets on the day if we go in the evening? We don't mind waiting for a couple of hours till the next available slot, is it nicer/quieter in the evening?
- We want to leave our baggage at Pisa Centrale, is the baggage deposit there safe and reliable? Does it still shut at 9pm?
- We will be going to Lucca by train but coming back to Pisa by bus so we can get dropped off close to the sites. Does anyone know how often buses go from Lucca?
For information, this is our rough itinerary:
11am - Arrive at Pisa Airport, get to Pisa Centrale and drop bags off at the hold.
12pm - Train to Lucca from Pisa Centrale
12pm-4pm(ish) - Browse Lucca
4pm - Bus to Pisa
5pm-8pm(ish) - Tower, Field of Miracles and Dinner
8pm - Go to Pisa Centrale, pick up luggage and travel to Florence via train.
Thanks in advance.
