Your guide will take you to admire the major attractions such as Piazza Santa Maria Novella, the Church of San Lorenzo, the Duomo, Piazza della Repubblica, Orsanmichele and Ponte Vecchio.

The square, which is pedestrian and covered by a vast lawn, is the most important tourist and artistic center of the city. Here you can admire the monuments that represent the center of Pisan religious life, called "miracles" (from Gabriele D'Annunzio in one of his famous works) for their magnificence and beauty: the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Campo Santo and the Leaning Tower.
Together with the guide you will visit the Cathedral inside and you will be provided with all the historical explanations related to the Leaning Tower of Pisa: it is a freestanding bell tower, located behind the Cathedral and it is the third oldest structure in the Piazza del Duomo. In this tour, you will admire it from the outside and discover from our local guide as to the reason why Pisa's tower started to tilt and how over the centuries, the structure was increased gradually.
