Full description
You've seen it in picture books. You've seen it on the walls of your favorite Italian restaurant. But nothing can prepare you for the amazing and beautiful Tower of Pisa! Come and visit this incredible city and learn about more than the architectural blunder that made it famous!

Our excursion begins with a walk along the Medieval walls of the city up to the old entrance gate. From here, you'll be treated to a breathtaking view of the Piazza die Miracoli with its bright white marble architecture. Your guide will share historical tales and then accompany you into the interior of the Cathedral. This marvel of Romanesque Art will inspire your senses. When you're done, visit the Monumental Graveyard and admire the Baptistery.

After the Cathedral visit, it's finally time. We venture out into the bright Italian sun to marvel at the leaning tower itself. Snap some photos and play with its funny angle by pretending to hold up the tower--be creative! While you're here your guide will also tell you this spot's secrets and history. We'll then skip the line and head up the 294 steps to reach the inner side of the Leaning Tower and enjoy a very unique perspective on the square below.

Pisa and the leaning tower have been on my bucket list for a while now and this was the perfect way to get familiar with the history and the city. There's not much time but I would say we had enough to climb the tower and see inside the cathedral. The local guide was really excellent!

Overall great half day trip to Pisa. Transportation was comfortable and guides were knowledgeable. Only suggestion is watch the time of the tour. It states the activity is 5 hours and ours ended up being almost 6.5 hours. Not sure if this is normal but something to consider if you have other activities planned or have a train to catch which was our situation..

Excellent Tour Guide

Didn't find a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful tour guide in our entire trip to Italy. Serena was cheerful and made the trip memorable. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to visit Pisa from Florence in the morning. I will also look for Serena as a tour guide and take that. Memorable.
