Wonderful experience!

We went to see the cathedral and leaning tower in Pisa and it was beautiful. The coach bus we took there was comfortable and it took about an hour and 20 minutes to arrive in Pisa. Our guide Elsie did a good job explaining everything on the way there. Once we arrived there’s a short walk from the parking lot and you’re there. We then had a new guide who was very knowledgeable on everything there in miracle square. We had fun climbing up to the top of the tower. It was over 200 steps up so please wear comfortable shoes and clothing. You’re not allowed to bring any type of bags into the tower, however there is a cloak room you can check your stuff into a locker. Bring a snack or you can get something there to eat. There is a small cafe, but time is very limited. We just grabbed a couple sandwiches and ate them on the go. Plenty of little shops to get souvenirs and a McDonald’s to use restroom for .50 cents. Overall it was fun, we learned a lot, and got some fun pictures.

Relaxed

This tour was very nice as you did not have to worry about anything. They made sure to include time for you to explore and shop on your own. It was very well organized. Con: By the time you return to Florence, most shops and restaurants are closed until dinner. Food is not offered on the trip.

Half a day isn’t enough.

You really need a whole day in Pisa to enjoy everything.
