What To Expect

Meet your private guide by the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and set out to explore the city on foot, starting with its magnificent centerpiece—the Piazza dei Miracoli.

As you stroll around the square, listen as your guide tells the story of Pisa’s fascinating history from Etruscan settlement to a Roman colony to a medieval port town. Admire the distinctive Cathedral (interior visit) and Baptistery, both striking examples of Pisan Romanesque architecture, then turn your attention to the star attraction—the legendary Leaning Tower of Pisa. Hear more about the tower’s infamous lean and pose for photos by the iconic tower, before continuing on your walking tour of the city.

Follow your guide through the Old Town, pausing to admire the Church of San Sisto, one of Pisa’s oldest churches, and explore the medieval Piazza dei Cavalieri, home to one of the most famous universities in the world—the Scuola Normale—and the Conte Ugolino Tower, which is featured in Dante’s 'Divine Comedy.' Stop by the one-time home of poet Giacomo Leopardi on the way to Piazza Arcivescovado, then marvel at the grandiose façade of the Palazzo Vescovile.

After taking in the highlights of the city, return to the Leaning Tower where your private guide leaves you and head straight inside using your pre-paid skip-the-line tickets. Climb the 294-step spiral staircase to the top of the 56-meter (183-foot) high tower, from where the views span the entire city.

After your visit to the tower, head to a nearby trattoria to tuck into a delicious 2-course lunch or dinner (if option is selected) before continuing to sightsee independently.

Informative and just the right length. Sylvia was nice and really knowledgeable. She pointed out unique features about the town, cathedral and tower. We also were able to skip the line for our tower access. Lots of steps but you have to do it when in Pisa!

Fabulous way to tour the Tower of Pisa/church area with a knowledgeable guide Sylvia, even in the rain with a family group of 10, along with a wonderful lunch at an authentic Italian restaurant. Highly recommend!
Awesome Experience in Pisa!

This is a tour I wouldn’t miss in Pisa. Our tour guide, Silvia, was knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible with the crazy weather we had that day. She pointed out many things we would have missed and shared Pisa’s very interesting history.

Pisa Perfection
Dianna_S, Jul 2018
Our guide, Sylvia, was great. From her we learned that Pisa is so much more than The Leaning Tower! She kept even the attention of my 15 and 17 year old grandsons! She was born in Pisa, her English is fabulous, she was informative without being boring, and added a bit of humor as well. Highly recommend this tour! We did the morning walking tour including lunch.

Our excellent guide made Pisa come alive. She was so knowledgeable, and passionate about the city and its history.

Susann K, Oct 2017
Had a tough time finding our guide at first, but ultimately got together with her. She was very knowledgeable about all the venues, and she spoke very good English. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, although we thought it was somewhat overpriced despite its being classified as a private tour. Because of the heat and the exertion that would have been required on our parts, we did not take advantage of the tickets for climbing to the top of the Leaning Tower, but that availability would probably have been a drawing point to tourists who were a little less senior than we were!

I first off just want to say THANK YOU! Viator and their tour guides made our trip!! This tour was very informative and we loved every minute. The guide was easy to find at the designated meeting point and covered so much about the area and history of Pisa.
