Description

Travel through the beautiful Tuscan countryside to Pisa on this half-day tour from Florence. Explore the architectural magnificence of the Piazza dei Miracoli—a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pose for photos with the iconic Leaning Tower, and learn about the construction of this famous monument.

Meet your guide in the centre of Florence and board a comfortable coach for the ride out of the city. Pass through the rolling countryside of Tuscany on your way to Pisa. Cross over the slow-moving waters of the Arno to reach the Piazza dei Miracoli, a grassy square dominated by 4 sacred edifices built beginning in the 11th century. Each of these beautiful white marble buildings symbolises an aspect of the human experience—the Baptistery represents birth, the Monumental Cemetery is death, and the Cathedral is the symbol of life.

The fourth—and most famous—structure in the plaza is the incredible Leaning Tower, the campanile (bell tower) of the complex. Just 5 years after construction of the tower began, weak soil and a poor foundation led the building to sink on the south side. Learn how construction continued for nearly 2 centuries, and hear what steps were taken to account for the tower's unavoidable lean. After stepping inside the cathedral to admire its black-and-white marble interior and gilded dome, spend some free time roaming around the city before the return ride to Florence.

The tour was fantastic. The tour left Florence at 2:15pm as scheduled. Our guides Anna and Sara were excellent and very knowledgeable. Anna was the guide for the drive to Pisa which takes about 1 hr 30 minutes. During the ride Anna provided information and facts about The history of Florence and Pisa. Once we arrived in Pisa Anna walked with us to the entrance of the Piazza de Miracolis where the Cathedral, the Bell Tower, the Baptistery, the cemetery and the old hospital are located. Anna turned us to Sara, our guide inside the piazza and Anna established the meeting place and time for returning to the bus. Sara was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the the area. We had plenty of time to take photos and ask questions. We left Pisa at 5:49 pm and got back to Florence by 7:30pm. I do highly recommend this tour.

It was worth going to see Pisa, and the famous leaning tower. The tour is a little overpriced in my opinion. This tour simply consists of a bus to Pisa and a 45 minute commentary by a tour guide of the duomo in Pisa and the leaning tower. Apparently there’s another version of this tour where you get to climb the leaning tower, that would have made it more interesting. About half the people on the bus had that option - we didn’t. My only real complaint here is the price.

I definitely recommend this tour. We took a bus which was difficult to find the meeting place. I recommend going earlier than they suggested in case you get lost. Otherwise, the tour guides were outstanding! Beautiful place to visit and we’ll worth the trip.
