You can visit Pisa in the morning and Lucca in the afternoon, returning to Florence from Lucca

Check train times seven days in advance

Personally I think that there is so much more in Siena than Pisa. Siena is a very easy day trip from Florence.

if your 3 days are 3 nights then you have 2 full days -- with so little time in Florence I wouldn't even think of doing a day trip. you can't scratch the surface of Florence in 2 or 3 days. (and I do love Siena -- )

I agree with Janet.But if you still want to make a day trip consider this..If you really want to see the leaning tower in Pisa(i wanted too!) then combine Lucca and Pisa.If this is not your priority,then head straight to Siena.It's a very special place,i wish i could spend 2-3 days there rather some hours!
