OVERVIEW

Pisa is a destination you cannot afford to miss on your trip to Tuscany.

This half-day tour Pisa Tour from Florence is specifically designed for independent and group travellers aged from 18 to 39 and you also have the option of combining it with a visit to Cinque Terre to make it a full-day tour packed of attractions.

The trip starts early in the morning with a 7am (8am in winter) appointment at Florence main train station (Santa Maria Novella), where you will meet your tour guide and the other fellow travellers.

You will reach Pisa by train with the journey taking approximately 50 minutes.

After arriving in Pisa, your group will head to Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles).Pisa Tour – Florence is about to start

Here your guide will hand you maps and list a number of interesting facts about this iconic tower and how it got to its current leaning position since construction began nearly 850 years ago.

The short deep foundation (only 3 meters) and the consistency of the clay mixture underneath took it to the current position, shortly after the second floor of the tower was built.

But you have nothing to fear these days: you can safely climb its stairs as the engineering works carried out in 2008 have stopped the tower from moving further.

What hasn’t stopped it’s the large number of Pisa Pushers that embark in the competition to produce the best photo: relax on the green gardens surrounding the tower and take on your friends and fellow travellers on who gets the best shot!

But Pisa is not just all about its famous tower: the Piazza dei Miracoli itself is a wonderful square that include other iconic monuments and buildings.

Most notably the imposing Duomo (the Cathedral), right at the center of it, as well as the Baptistry. Here the famous astronomer and scientist Galileo Galilei was baptised.

You will have two hours of free time to spend between these sites.

If you decide to climb the 281 stairs of the Leaning Tower, just make sure you select the option to reserve in advance your skip the line entrance ticket for the extra cost of €22.
