Highlights
  • Visit Pisa's imposing Cathedral and the largest Baptistery in Italy
  • Climb up the iconic Leaning Tower and enjoy a beautiful view of the city
  • Experience a guided tour of Piazza dei Miracoli and its famous monuments
Full description
This walking tour will take you to the Piazza dei Miracoli with your informative guide, where you discover its monuments known as “miracles” because of their incredible beauty and uniqueness. Be dazzled by this marvelous square dominated by the Cathedral, typical of the distinctive Pisa Romanesque architecture (you will visit the interior*). Admire the round-shaped Baptistery surrounded by its suggestive columned arcades and its “Camposanto”, originally a cemetery, an extraordinary quadrangular cloister. The commentary of your guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world. Be enthralled by the history and the leaning structure of the Tower which stirs the imagination of all visitors.  After the guided tour, enjoy the interior visit of the magnificent Leaning Tower (if option selected), climbing to its top by mounting its 294 steps. This is guaranteed to be an amazing experience. Marvel at the unique phenomenon caused by the weak and unstable subsoil. *In case of long queues, if you cannot visit the interior of the Cathedral, you will be offered a guided visit of Piazza dei Cavalieri.

    After an initial difficulty in identifying the meeting point (well resolved by the guide's initiative) we started a very interesting tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli! The guide, Riccardo, was able to satisfy my curiosity and the 3 9-year-old children I was with. A truly special guide that both of them and I will surely remember!

    The guide we had was excellent and was very well versed about the area .... although for some reason I thought we were going to have a tour of the city not just the area of the leaning tower .... We thoroughly enjoyed this and were so glad we had taken a guided tour rather than walk about on our own The tower was well worth visiting a tough climb and not for the faint hearted!

    Focus different than expected but great nonetheless

    We booked this tour in German tongue for a family of 4. I emailed the service provider for confirmation 1 day up front and got immediate response, so that was pretty reassuring :) When we arrived at the meeting point our guide already spotted us even with all these hundreds of tourists walking around the place. The guides then split the group by language and had a guide for each particular language and headsets so that we could hear our guide talking even with all the crowds going by and the typical noise of such places. In the end the tour was not really a city walking tour, but was restricted to the piazza with the leaning tower and the cathedral. But still our guide provided a lot of historical and background information about the baptistery, the cathedral, the tower, and Pisa and its history in general. It was very interesting and we pretty much enjoyed the tour. The guide was even doing good with our teenage boys keeping it interesting for them as well. Appreciated :)
