Full description
Leave Florence to arrive in the heart of the historic center of Pisa, near Pisa’s most popular square, Piazza dei Miracoli. Get a chance to discover some of the most famous landmarks, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, on this semi-private, guided tour. The square welcomes you with the light of its white marble monuments that contrast with the green lawn that surrounds them. You'll be able to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the cathedral, the baptistery, the camposanto (“cemetery”), and more. All these buildings were built between the 11th and 13th centuries when the city was a powerful and rich maritime republic. They constitute a unique architectural ensemble in the world and one of the most visited UNESCO sites in Italy. Upon your arrival, your local guide will tell you the history of the city that gave birth to Galileo Galilei and reveal the secrets of the leaning tower and other monuments in the square. See the famous bell tower of the Romanesque Pisa Cathedral and visit the interior. Discover many masterpieces inside, including the famous Pulpit by Giovanni Pisano. In the square, admire the baptistery with its unusual circular plan and the monumental cemetery. Enjoy free time to discover the oldest botanical garden in Europe, founded by Cosimo I de 'Medici, a green oasis just three minutes from Piazza dei Miracoli. You can also choose to enter the lively streets of the historic center, with its Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance buildings and its breathtaking squares. Among all the squares to explore, the Piazza dei Cavalieri stands out, with its famous “Scuola Normale,” one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Before returning to Florence, say goodbye to the city with a minivan tour along the elegant Lungarni and, like so many artists and poets before, discover the magic of the romantic city views along the curves of the Arno river.

    We were picked up by a very nice car with a dressed up driver. Felt very fancy. We ended up being the only ones on the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. She helped us get great photos. They did run a little late picking us up but everything else was great.
