What To Expect

After meeting your guide by the famous Leaning Tower, make a beeline for the city’s historical center—the grand Piazza dei Miracoli. Here, the dominating landmark is the Leaning Tower, and you have plenty of time to admire the exterior and pose for photos by the tower, as your guide informs you of its fascinating history. Learn why the tower leans and discover the innovative engineering feats undertaken to keep the tower from falling over.

Then, follow your guide on a stroll around the rest of Piazza dei Miracoli, where the architectural wonders include the distinctive Romanesque Cathedral and the exquisite domed Baptistery.

During the walking tour, it's also possible to purchase the admission ticket to the Baptistery (to be paid on site directly from your guide), which includes priority access inside the wonderful Cathedral. 

Continue through the Old Town of Pisa, passing the Church of San Sisto, one of the oldest churches in Pisa. Pause to admire the Scuola Normale, one of the most famous universities in the world, in Piazza dei Cavalieri, and see the house of Count Ugolino della Gherardesca, also called ‘Conte Ugolino Tower’ in Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Discover fascinating historical facts and stories from your guide, as you stroll through the heart of the medieval city, and stop to see the house where Giacomo Leopardi lived. Make one final stop in Piazza Arcivescovado, to marvel at the impressive Palazzo Vescovile and bid your guide farewell.
