What To Expect
As you stroll around the square, listen as your guide tells the story of Pisa’s fascinating history from Etruscan settlement to a Roman colony to a medieval port town. Admire the distinctive Cathedral (interior visit) and Baptistery, both striking examples of Pisan Romanesque architecture, then turn your attention to the star attraction—the legendary Leaning Tower of Pisa. Hear more about the tower’s infamous lean and pose for photos by the iconic tower, before continuing on your walking tour of the city.
Follow your guide through the Old Town, pausing to admire the Church of San Sisto, one of Pisa’s oldest churches, and explore the medieval Piazza dei Cavalieri, home to one of the most famous universities in the world—the Scuola Normale—and the Conte Ugolino Tower, which is featured in Dante’s 'Divine Comedy.' Stop by the one-time home of poet Giacomo Leopardi on the way to Piazza Arcivescovado, then marvel at the grandiose façade of the Palazzo Vescovile.
After taking in the highlights of the city, return to the Leaning Tower where your private guide leaves you and head straight inside using your pre-paid skip-the-line tickets. Climb the 294-step spiral staircase to the top of the 56-meter (183-foot) high tower, from where the views span the entire city.
After your visit to the tower, head to a nearby trattoria to tuck into a delicious 2-course lunch or dinner (if option is selected) before continuing to sightsee independently.
