Full description

You've seen it in picture books. You've seen it on the walls of your favorite Italian restaurant. But nothing can prepare you for the amazing and beautiful Tower of Pisa.

Come and visit this incredible city and learn about more than the architectural blunder that made it famous. Our excursion begins with a walk along the Medieval walls of the city up to the old entrance gate. From here, you'll be treated to a breathtaking view of the Piazza die Miracoli with its bright white marble architecture.

Your guide will share historical tales and then accompany you into the interior of the Cathedral. This marvel of Romanesque Art will inspire your senses. When you're done, visit the Monumental Graveyard and admire the Baptistery. After the Cathedral visit, it's finally time. We venture out into the bright Italian sun to marvel at the leaning tower itself. Snap some photos and play with its funny angle by pretending to hold up the tower — be creative.

While you're here your guide will also tell you this spot's secrets and history. We'll then skip the line and head up the 294 steps to reach the inner side of the Leaning Tower and enjoy a very unique perspective on the square below.

    We had a great half-day trip to Pisa from Florence. The meeting point is near the train station and you board a comfortable bus to Pisa. The travel time is a little over an hour. When we reached, we were introduced to our guide who took us on a tour of the Cathedral and gave us information about the Baptisary and the Leaning Tower. You can buy tickets to climb the Tower, which we did, and trust me - totally worth it!! Overall, it was a well organised trip and I would recommend to all.

    This was a very nice tour and probably a good way to explore Pisa from Florence. The tour guide was very nice and made us understand the history of the place. The tour was well organized to make sure that everyone was at comfort. The transport bus was nice and comfortable.

    I must admit traveling with kids and trying to find the meeting point was challenging but we did get a call from our guide to know where we were located. also Vera and driver were great! Vera explained everything in English and Spanish. We met our guide Sarah who was knowledgeable about Pisa history and was great to understand the importance of this city! Wonderful experience indeed!!!
