What to expect

Discover the Square of Miracles on this amazing tour that will show you the best of Pisa. With your local guide, you will learn more about the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the famous Leaning Tower, and you will also have the opportunity to skip the line and climb the tower.

Your guide will take you to the Piazza dei Miracoli and let you discover its monuments which are known as “miracles” because of their incredible beauty and uniqueness. You'll visit the interior of the Cathedral and admire its distinctive Romanesque architecture.

Explore the round-shaped Baptistery surrounded by suggestive columned arcades and the 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.

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.

The tour will go on to Dante Square, where you will admire the Sapienza of Pisa, one of the most ancient universities in Italy. The city grew and developed in and around the inlets of the Arno, which lend the view of the Lungarni and the majestic grand-ducal buildings, Romanesque and Gothic style churches and the overlooking Medieval and Renaissance fortifications. Then from Garibaldi Square located near the Lungarni, you will go through Borgo Stretto, one of the most popular streets in town and you'll go back to Miracle Square.

After the guided tour, which ends by the magnificent Leaning Tower, if you've booked in advance, you'll enjoy the interior visit of the magnificent Leaning Tower by climbing its 294 steps and marvel at the unique phenomenon caused by the weak and unstable subsoil. This is guaranteed to be an amazing experience!
