Full description
Embark on a unique excursion through the fertile and picturesque Tuscan countryside to the historic university city of Pisa, famous for its architectural beauty. Upon arrival in Pisa, your informative guide will take you on a thorough guided walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli and its monuments, known as “miracles” because of their incredible beauty and uniqueness. Be dazzled by this marvelous square, dominated by the Cathedral*, and visit its interior, which is typical of Pisa Romanesque architecture. Enjoy the celebrated Leaning Tower and the round-shaped Baptistery surrounded by its suggestive columned arcades and its “Camposanto”, originally a cemetery, an extraordinary quadrangular cloister, delimiting with its marble façade the Square to the North. The commentary of your guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world. Be enthralled by the history and the leaning structure of the Tower which stirs the imagination of all visitors.   After the guided visit that will end at the magnificent Leaning Tower, you will enjoy the interior visit of the magnificent Tower. Skip the line and climb to its top by mounting its 294 steps. Admire this unique leaning phenomenon, caused by the weak and unstable subsoil. *In case of long queues, if you cannot visit the interior of the Cathedral, you will be offered a guided visit of Piazza dei Cavalieri.

    This trip to Pisa was really amazing. The trip starts at 1:30 and you get back by 7:30 which is a decent time to visit leaning tower of pisa. The bus was very comfortable. The guide on the bus Gabrielle clearly communicated the expectations from this trip, the meeting points, the timings etc which was really helpful. The guide who explained us about the cathedral and leaning tower was also very nice. We really enjoyed this activity from get your guide.

    Our guide Sara at Pisa was superb. We learned a lot about the building of the tower and Etruscian culture, I had wished that we had visited Pisa for longer than 1/2 day from Florence. My husband had wanted to go but I was reluctant as I wanted to stay in Florence but I am very glad I took this tour.

    The only thing I didn’t like is that the bus had to park so far away & you had to walk a few blocks to Pisa and same with leaving. I don’t know why the bus cannot drop you off & pick up at the front. We had a hard time figuring out the meating place in Florence to get on the bus.
