La Giunchiglia came into being in Lucca in the early 1980s. It was set up by a group of young art history students who simply loved their home town and wanted to devote their future and make a career out of making its history and art better known organizing Walking tours of Lucca. Lucca was scarcely known on the tourist track at that time and opportunities for having the pleasure of showing it to visitors were few, so many of us were soon forced to turn to other cultural activities and ended up acting as tour guides as a hobby. We increased our knowledge of Lucca and the surrounding area by going to different courses and finding out more and more about our history, art, archaeology, botany, traditions and the things that are produced here, such as wine and extra virgin olive oil. We tried to focus on everything that would enhance the quality of our tours, and to promote Lucca through the Web. In the last few years, La Giunchiglia introduced all the other Tuscan provinces: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Massa Carrara, Pistoia and Prato. We are able to create customized tours in every of these historical sites or help you in creating the perfect tour for you and you family, or for your group. Ours ...is a passion that became the best job we could possibly have in our beloved land, Tuscany and we want to share it with everyone who comes to visit!
