Full description

Enjoy a splendid 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, where you will admire the wonderful architecture of the unique buildings surrounding you, called “Miracles” in the past because of their incredible beauty.

Be will be dazzled by this marvelous square which is dominated by the wonderful Cathedral (*) where you will visit the indoor part, a model of the distinctive Pisan Romanesque architecture.

See the celebrated Leaning Tower, 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 our guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower ─ one of the wonders of the world. You will be enthralled by the history and the leaning structure of the Tower which stirs the imagination of all visitors.

After the guided visit you will have some free time for memorable pictures or to discover on your own the historical quarter where you can admire the Church of San Sisto, one of the oldest churches in Pisa and Piazza dei Cavalieri, which was the political centre in the middle age and where the Scuola Normale is located, one of the most famous universities in the world.  (*) In case of long queue, if you cannot visit the interior of the Cathedral, you will be offered a guided visit of Piazza dei Cavalieri.

Well spent day. We went there in the afternoon which’s great! we got to walk around and take lovely pictures in daylight, i saw other groups coming after sunset which wasn’t the perfect scenario in my opinion. It’s not an informative trip don’t expect this from the guide as it says it’s mostly on your own but they’re helpful and lovely guides. They are strict on timings which is good. We had time to walk around the city square and eat lunch if needed. Meeting point was not not that near from metro station or center it’s about 15-20 mins walking . Overall well recommend

It was a good half day trip. The bus ride was relaxing and the guide shared some commentary about the sites along the way. Our guide when we got to the Baptistery and the Cathedral was just ok. He did not have a lot to offer when it came to the art and history. My husband and I decided to climb the Tower of Pisa (extra charge for the climb that should be bought in advance). We enjoyed the view and the climb. If you climbed the tower, there was no extra time to see the Baptistry on the inside or the full Cathedral.

Tour was excellent except that we have to walk a lot for pick up point in Florence & again at parking place in Pisa. Pick up should be near train station & drop near miracle square. Total walk at both ends for going & coming is around 3 km, then how will one move in miracle square ?
