DESCRIPTION

     Your English speaking driver/guide will pick you up at your hotel in the morning. En route to Lucca you will stop to visit the Museum of Ancient Textile. Here a self-explanatory itinerary will offer you the opportunity to see beautiful, ancient well preserved fabrics, as well to learn about Da Vinci textile machines. In a world overwhelmed by synthetic products, this interactive museum will also offer the opportunity to learn or re-discover a wide range of natural fabrics. Children might also optionally enjoy a fun fabric workshop. 

     With a short drive, you will be in Lucca. The first settlement of this town dates back to pre-Roman age, and become a Roman colony in 180 B.C. During the middle age, Luca became famous for its textile industry, mostly silk, for which Luca has been enlisted in the UNESCO Heritage sites. Even now days a large variety of made in Italy clothes are produced in this area. 

     Still a less crowded touristy destination, its typical medieval layout and some outstanding building will grant to visitors a great reward. 
You will have free time to walk on top of the Medieval Wall which encircle downtown, enjoy a stop at the characteristic open market settled in the unique elicit square built on the footprint of the Ancient Roman Amphitheater. Visit San Michele square, Napoleon square, the Cathedral of San Martino, the Church of San Frediano and the medieval Guinigi Tower hosting on top a centuries old roof garden. 
After your lunch break to one of the many families run restaurants serving strictly local cuisine, you might have free time to enjoy a walk on top and along the medieval encircling the town.
