Following your dedicated guide, you'll see the Church of San Giovanni Fuorcivitas and the Piazza della Sala, with the famous Pozzo del Leoncino. You'll then walk to Piazza Duomo, where you can choose to take a visit inside the dome and the Silver Altar of San Jacopo. Your guide will then tell you about Palazzo Pretorio, its frescoed atrium and about the Baptistry (external and internal). On this tour you'll get the chance to see the Ospedale del Ceppo with the Robbian frieze and the Church of Sant'Andrea with the pulpit by Giovanni Pisano.
