On this incredible half day tour from Florence, you'll have the opportunity to tour one of the most emblematic icons of the country of Italy – the medieval city of Pisa, along with its world-famous Leaning Tower. The tour is offered twice daily in the morning and afternoon, in order to make it accessible no matter what your schedule may be like.
The tour begins with your guide taking you along a section of the ancient walls and through the famous gate called the Porta Santa Maria.
Proceeding in to Pisa proper, the first sight you will be struck by is the unique panorama presented by the famous Piazza dei Miracoli. The vividly green and assiduously maintained grass lawns present a stark contrast to the whiteness of the marble used to construct the wondrous masterpieces of architecture that fill the Piazza.
You will move through the Piazza, your guide will accompany you on your visit to the precious interiors of the Cathedral, an unchallenged masterpiece of Romanesque art. Once outside you can admire externally the Baptistery and the Monumental Graveyard.
Finally, you'll have your opportunity to see the famous Leaning Tower from the outside. Your guide will explain the history behind the Leaning Tower, as well as the efforts in place to ensure that it won't actually fall over. Believe it or not, the most recent efforts were completed only as recently as 2008, and the Tower is expected to need some more work in about 200 more years.
